#TongueOutTuesday continues with Briar!! ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š Briar is about two years old and is looking for her forever home. She is a happy, sweet, and gentle dog who absolutely LOVES to be around her humans. An ideal home for this adorable pup would be one with a backyard (where she can throw her toys in the air and do her zoomies), and with someone who would provide her with daily exercise as well as mental stimulation. Good with dogs and kids, not tested with cats yet!
.
She is extremely intelligent and eager to please. Sheโ€™s coming along well with leash training, though she will always alert you when a bunny is nearby! She knows how to sit, she is completely housetrained, she takes treats gently from your hand, and with some more basic obedience training, Briar will truly be her best self.
.
She is crate trained and loves to seek out either her crate or a quiet, sheltered spot when she is looking for some alone time. At night, she sleeps in a crate in a bedroom with her humans, though she would really rather be in bed, snuggling up to them. Briar enjoys playing with her toys โ€“ rattle balls and squeakies are her favourite โ€“ and because sheโ€™s so smart, she seems to know which toys are hers and which are off-limits. If she makes a mistake and grabs someoneโ€™s toy, she will gently hand it back when asked nicely to do so.
.
Briar LOVES affection, and she will happily stop whatever sheโ€™s doing for some pets and belly rubs. If she thinks she deserves more scratches (always), she will let you know that she would like you to keep loving on her.
.
This active, loving pup deserves the very best furever homeโ€ฆ could that home be yours?! WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FUR? Visit her profile today at aarcs.ca/adoptable-dogs ๐Ÿถ

DRUM is looking for a foster home ๐Ÿฅ Drum recently came into AARCS' care from a situation in which a number of sick cats were rescued. This sweet, shy lady is still relatively young and unfortunately she has suffered severe damage to one of her eyes which was left untreated for far too long ๐Ÿ’”
.
Our medical team is unable to repair her injury, so they have decided that removing her impaired eye is the best option for her. Drum is seeking a quiet home where she can rest before and after the surgery.
.
Can you help miss Drum?! Apply to foster with us at AARCS.ca/Foster, or send an email to catoperations@aarcs.ca if you are already a foster home with us. Please SHARE to help Drum find a foster family! ๐Ÿ’š

โš ๏ธ SAFE HAVEN ON FULL QUARANTINE
.
Due to a single patient who has presented with symptoms of canine #distemper, we are taking every precaution by placing our animal shelter on full quarantine. โ›” Our dog intake is CLOSED until further notice. During this period we will not be offering shelter tours, however, our reception area is still open should you wish to drop off donations. Currently, AARCS Safe Haven is housing 45 dogs and an additional 15 have already been placed into quarantine foster homes who are being monitored for potential symptoms that might arise. We kindly ask that you keep our canine patients in your thoughts. โค๏ธ
.
It's important that you understand that our shelter was purposely built as a quarantine facility for situations such as this. The majority of the animals we intake do not have a vaccine history as they are generally from rural/remote communities, another reminder that vaccines truly do save lives. Nevertheless, we are also a foster home based organization and still have a large number of healthy unaffected dogs (and cats) up for adoption or in the process of being cleared for adoption on our website at AARCS.ca.
.
๐Ÿ’“ ๐‡๐Ž๐– ๐‚๐€๐ ๐˜๐Ž๐” ๐‡๐„๐‹๐ - here are the top three items we could REALLY put to good use (http://bit.ly/amazon_aarcs)
1) Latex Gloves
2) Isolation Gowns - disposable and washable
3) Durable Enrichment Toys for affected dogs.
.
As the length of stay for these animals in quarantine will increase, donations towards their care are extremely appreciated at bit.ly/aarcsdonate. As of today, only one patient is symptomatic and hospitalized in isolation at one of our partner emergency clinics.
.
Thank you for your patience, understanding, compassion and support. We will let you know when our shelter is open again to the public.

CALLING ALL PIBBLE LOVERS ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š Peeler needs your SHARES! This handsome dude is our #DogOfTheWeek and has a special adoption fee of just $75 to get him into the right home! Peeler has some specific requirements, but has been waiting so patiently ๐Ÿพ Read on to see if he could be a fit for you or someone you know:
.
Peelerโ€™s dream family is patient, kind, experienced with dogs and willing to let him go at his own pace, especially with new people and even things like surfaces, strange hallways and dark basements. Positive reinforcement is must! Heโ€™ll need a yard to get his zoomies out - plus itโ€™s a great place to work on training! He can be dog selective, but if he found a family with a dog he got along with, it would be great for him ๐ŸŽ‰ The right family will be willing to continue his training, manners and socialization. He needs a home WITHOUT cats or other small critters, and needs older (14+) children only as apparently little ones donโ€™t appreciate his bouncy greetings ๐Ÿ˜‰
.
Heโ€™s house trained and trustworthy when alone, and working on his crate training. He can pull on leash but is getting better every day! He absolutely adores his people and loves nothing more than to follow you around and snuggle you ๐Ÿ’š
.
This guy has been waiting for a home of his own for SO long!! Please SHARE to find the perfect family for Peeler ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿพ๐Ÿถ

BREAKING โšก๏ธ 25/72 Havanese in AARCS' Care! In July, 72 Havanese-type dogs ranging in age from two weeks old to adult, were seized from a property in rural #YEG by @edmontonpoliceservice and Animal Care & Control Centre - Edmonton (ACCC) officers following complaints.
.
Over the weekend, 25 of the dogs were released to AARCS care for re-homing. Our staff and volunteers have begun the process of assessing them medically and placing them into foster care until they are ready for adoption, including ensuring they are all medically cleared and spayed or neutered. .
We would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to Edmonton ACCC for rescuing these dogs and caring for them during their investigation. Gloria Sears has been charged under both the criminal code and the Animal Protection Act for causing animals to be in distress and for failing to provide adequate care.
.
We will be watching this case closely and we are hopeful that our criminal justice system will prevail. In the meantime, our focus will be on ensuring these beautiful souls are provided with the best possible care and eventually find loving, new forever homes.
.
We would like to remind the public to be aware that when purchasing animals online, through Kijiji or at a store, that they could be supporting puppy mills and backyard breeders. We encourage everyone to consider adoption from a reputable, registered non-profit rescue organization or humane society that provide vet records and spay/neuter.
.
โš ๏ธ IMPORTANT NOTICE โš ๏ธ Anyone interested in adopting should keep an eye on the website and apply at the time the dog's profiles are listed. We understand there will be a lot of interest in these dogs, but unfortunately, we are not able to accept adoption applications in advance.
.
At AARCS we advocate responsible pet ownership, which includes spay and neuter. In the past month and a half, over 800 animals have been spayed/neutered through our programs!
.
With each surgery averaging between $200 - $300, your support is crucial in putting a stop to the endless suffering and cycle of unwanted pets. Consider making a donation towards their care today at bit.ly/aarcsdonate ๐Ÿ’Œ

LOOK WHO IT IS! It's Oracle, now Mya, who is loving life with her forever family and her fur brother Larry! Here is what her family had to say:
.
"She has been such a beautiful soul that has come into our house. We feel very fortunate we have her. She has bonded really well with our other dog Larry. They play a lot, she likes to clean his ears and cuddle him.She walks like a champ on her leash. It is very cute because on the side she does not have the eye she will have Larry, and will lean into him so they are touching sides. All in all she is just amazing, I am not sure words could ever describe how much we love her."
.
Miss Mya is signed up for our JAIL N BAIL on September 14 - it'll be a fun event with a street festival, kids area, food trucks, adoptable animals on site and more! Learn more by visiting our Facebook event ๐Ÿ’š

Brothers Kid and Winston are starting their weekend a day early ๐Ÿ’ค ๐Ÿ’ค ๐Ÿ’ค How cute are these two?!
.
Kid and Winston were taken care of by a whelping foster home. Whelping homes take care of a mom and pups (or mom and kittens if youโ€™re a cat person!) in their first eight weeks of life. If you have an unfinished basement, heated garage or other area where mum and her babies could be separate from kids and other animals in the house, consider becoming a whelping home! Visit aarcs.ca/foster to learn more ๐Ÿ’š
.
These two and their other litter mates will be up on our website soon to find their forever families!

It's #WagginWednesday and this week our featured Fido ๐Ÿ• is Brocket! For ONE week only Brocket will be available for a special adoption fee of $100! ๐Ÿพ
.
Brocket came into AARCS' care in need of medical attention after going toe to toe with a porcupine. ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ Sadly, our medical team had to remove one of his eyes because it was badly damaged from the porcupine quills. He is all better now and is SO ready to find his own furever family. ๐Ÿฅฐ
.
Brocket is an AMAZING dog! He is quiet and calm and loves his people very deeply. He would do best starting out with a family where someone is not gone for long periods of time, so he can work on boosting his confidence. ๐Ÿ’š
.
Brocket has had a rough go and has felt afraid when his foster family leaves him alone. He has been working hard on his separation anxiety and it is currently being managed with medication. He may be able to have a confident but friendly furbrother or fursister after proper introductions and he would also be okay as the only dog in the home. .
He is really loveable and his new family will be so HAPPY to be loved by this sweet boy. To read more about Brocket, please check out his bio at aarcs.ca. And please SHARE to help him find a fur-ever family!
