FOSTER HOMES URGENTLY NEEDED
Winter is a very high risk and dangerous time for abandoned and homeless dogs. Shelter, food and water can make the difference between life and death. In order to rescue animals in these situations we need foster homes at the ready where rescues can stay until a suitable forever home is found. Food, sundries and medical care are provided by DDARS. All you need to provide is the love, attention and a warm place to sleep.
Fostering is a critical piece of the rescue process. Without foster homes we cannot rescue. If you think you might like to foster and would like to know more, please contact us at dukeandduchess@telus.net or phone Amber at 780-721-1827.


Do you have a little spare time to help make a difference to dogs in need?
We need volunteers to help us with:
* transportation of dogs in foster care to and from adoption events
* handling foster dogs at adoption events
* pick up and drop off supplies
If you would like to pitch in please call:

One Dog's Perspective On Loyalty:
Charles Adler of CHED 630 provides one dog's perspective on loyalty. Sadly, this happens all too frequently.

BELLA
HELLO! It's me, Bella! Foster mom told me that if I sit pretty my forever family will come along, but I'm too excited, that's just my personality. I love to snuggle and give kisses and I have free roam of the house during the day and at night, I am too much of a good girl to ruin your things! At 6 years young I still love to play, I am great at fetch and will bring the ball back as many times as you will throw it. I am working on my manners and would do best in an only pet home and with children over ten years old (foster mom says I can be a bit of a bossy boots). If you are looking for a loyal protector then ask about me, BELLA!

LENA

Gender - female
 Breed - Shepherd mix
 Age - 2 years old
 Size - 60 pounds (26" at the shoulder)
 Dogs - yes
 Cats - yes
 Kids - yes
 Energy level - medium

I am a sweet calm girl who is game to play with people, kids and other dogs, or just snuggle up beside you. Her perfect family would need to be home more often than not and Lena would love to have a doggie companion to help build her confidence and keep her company:) Being such a smart girl she has been enjoying taking training classes with her foster mom. She is also good on leash which is great as Lena loves to go for walks. If you are looking for a good walking partner and think Lena could be the dog for you

KODA
My name is Koda. I am a middle aged Basset/Dachshund mix. I am making a speedy recovery after treatment for an awful health scare. The picture below is me enjoying a little relaxation in the sun today.
I love big people (little ones make me a bit nervous though). Cats are NOT my thing, mostly because they are so snotty, and clearly I am not, so we just don't run in the same circles of friends because let's face it... it's a dogs life. I'm not a fan of small dogs in my home, but off leash is fine.

CASPER
Gender: male
 Breed: Shepherd/Collie mix
 Age: 4 years
 Good with dogs: yes
 Good with cats: No
 Good with kids: Hasn't met kids yet, but we expect him to be fine due to his gentle nature

Hey everyone, Casper here!
I'm crate trained and I also know, sit, down, and come. I love fast walks and car rides. I haven't really been around kids but they say I would probably do good because of my gentle nature. They tell me I'm calm and mild mannered. I do like to sneak food off the counter but what dog doesn't!? We are working on my people handling my feet so I won't be so scared of nail trims, and I have a little OCD about chewing my nails, but hey...we all have our quirks!! I'm also learning to use my inside bark when visitors come to the door. I'm eager to keep learning and am looking for my own people to help me grow, could you be my people?

KRAMER
Kramer is thirteen years old and is going to live out his days with his loving and caring foster family. He is one lucky guy.
FINN
Gender: male
 Age: 4 years
 Breed: Lab/Staff mix
 Size: 70 pounds
 Good with dogs: yes - calmer dogs
 Good with kids: yes - older
 Good with cats: not tested
 Energy: high

Hello world and get ready to be charmed by yours truly. I am a charismatic guy who likes long walks around the dog park and a good gossip session on occasion - when I am in the mood I can talk your ear off! I've never met a cat, but I get along best with calm dogs and older children that can handle the playful side of me. Obedience is easy peasy for me. I come when called, I can fetch, I sleep in my crate, and I sit when asked. Manners galore over here! My foster mom says my tendency to hide my face under blankets is pretty cute, but I'm pretty sure she can't see me so I don't know what she's talking about. If you think you have a place in your heart for a happy-go-lucky boy like me, I'd be more than happy to love you forever!

RAVEN
  Hello Everyone, I am the lovely dark furred Raven! With my gorgeous multicolored black/brown coat, white tipped toes and big brown eyes I will surely melt your heart.
  I have been in foster care for a while now and have become quite a lovely, playful girl. I am 9 months old so still a pup but know my manners in the house.
  My favorite things to do are playing with my dog buddies and getting lots of love and pets from my foster family. I am great with kids over 4, and am fully house and crate trained.
  I also live with 2 resident cats, they don't like me to much so they always run away but my foster mommy thinks I would probably do ok with them if they gave me a chance!
 I am currently working on my leash manners, and am fairly easily corrected.
 My foster mommy says I will make someone wonderful addition to their family.

PEBBLES
Gender: Female
Age: 1.5 years old
Breed: Lab mix
Size: 40 pounds
Good with dogs: yes - she seems to prefer
 females
Good with kids: yes - older
Good with cats: not tested, but she has
 high prey drive
Energy: high

I just got out of the slammer. After spending months in the pound, underweight and starving for attention I'm free! I don't know what I did to get locked up, but now that I'm out I live my life by the motto "if you ain't first, you're last." I love biking and running and playing catch and I fly just like a gazelle when I do because it's so great to be free. I act fast because I never know when I might get the chance to have a good meal, catch a fast ball, or have my belly rubbed again. I'm a sweet, beautiful little lab cross and my foster mom says that sometimes I need guidance to learn that I don't always need to be first. As soon as I get spayed and get my shots, I would love an active family to call my own. Could I be your perfect match?

EASTON
If you're looking for an affectionate goofball to be your best friend, look no further.  You know Scooby Doo? That's pretty much me in a nutshell! I mean, I love everybody - kids, cats, and dogs included, but I'm a bit of a chicken when it comes to being left all alone. I am one year old Shepherd mix. My foster parents sometimes let me curl up in my crate with a good bone to help me learn that it's okay to be alone for a bit, and that sure helps! But this means I need a forever home with parents that are home more often than not, and a best friend like Shaggy, willing to love me and help me learn to be less of a scaredy-cat!
