WE NEED YOUR HELP
We are fully funded by Donations
(Tax Receipt available for your donation of $20.00 or more)
Many pet owners and their beloved pets are in crisis due to COVID-19 and need our help now more than ever. It has become increasingly difficult for us to raise funds during this Pandemic due to the restrictions implemented in social gatherings. We have been unable to do our fund raising events this year, which has drastically affected our funds we use to help with rescuing dogs and the medical costs incurred to get them healthy and available for adoption.
Thank you from Delbert for your donations to his medical costs. He is the Pomeranian pup that was born by emergency caesarean. He required special formula as well, to help him grow and get strong. He then had to get his shots to be ready for adoption. He is now 4 months old and weigh 3.5 lbs. Delbert's adopted Mom loves and adores him. She took this picture from when he graduated from Puppy School, where he learned the basic commands and did very well. His Mom has given him a wonderful home and life.
My name is Merlin. About four years ago the Okanagan Small Dog Rescue took me in and found a forever home for me. They’re really good at that. I’m an office dog now, in a little accounting firm. There are three office dogs here, and we are important. We make sure the staff and clients all get some exercise and a snuggle every day. Otis is a yellow lab, and he’s a Therapy Dog so he knows how to make people feel better. For the first two years it was just Otis and I, so I learned a lot from him. Then a year ago, Lexi the border collie joined us. Lexi lives with me and she was only a year old when she joined the pack. She was a nervous wreck! She didn’t know anything about being inside, and Otis and I had to teach her all about being office dogs. Now we’re just one big happy doggy family.
When Mom adopted me, she enrolled me in a puppy class. I wasn’t a puppy, but she thought I needed to learn things like walking on a leash and coming back when she called me as well as all those other things dogs are supposed to know, like sit, stay, and down. I aced the class, and it helped me be more confident too. We had so much fun, we decided to sign up for agility classes. I love agility! People think my legs are too short, but I fool them. I can jump and run and weave as fast as any other dog, and I learn really fast. Mum set up an agility course for me in the back yard with jumps and a tunnel and weave poles and a plank walk. Last summer I started to teach the grandkids how to run it with me. They catch on really fast and we have lots of fun. Mum said that maybe when the world goes back to normal, we can try competing!
Okanagan Small Dog Rescue is run completely by volunteers.
We give up our time and hearts to do this. We will make mistakes or we will forget a phone call and sometimes we may take too long to respond to your email. Please respect that we are always doing the best that we can do.
Our mandate states ‘No dog shall die for lack of medical care” AND THIS is what we do best.
We would like to share your story and pictures of your rescue dog that you have adopted through Okanagan Small Dog Rescue. Please email to:
