  2. General Animal Discussion
    Does anyone know if shelters are usually receptive to adopting to families not from the area? I live in New Brunswick, Canada and my family and I are interested in a puppy in a shelter in Maine (which is just a few hours away from our house but still across the border). We're looking for a small...
  3. Dogs
    First off my problem is with our Saint Bernard Missy. I really didn't think there were any real big behavior problems with any of our dogs until recently. I'm starting to get really frustrated and it is making it hard for me to work with her right now. The thing that I want to address first is...
  4. Rabbit Discussion
    I'm fostering a fairly young rabbit through a local shelter(a 3 month old black silver marten), and was wondering if you all could answer me some questions regarding his odd behavior... First off, he trembles quite a bit. Especially when I take him out of his cage. He's also breathing really...
  5. Animals in Need
    So I was fostering these puppies for rescue...and the rescue backed out and dumped them with me. Anyone want a puppy? They are aussie crossed with maybe husky, except the little black one is a who knows puppy. Seriously, if you're interested, please pm me. I need to find these babies homes!
  6. Rabbit Discussion
    I don't come here too often, but I wanted advice for my bunny Eeyore who lost his best friend Saturday. Flopsy died of cancer and it has torn me apart. I rescued her 5 yrs ago and that bond and friendship grew each day. The past month or so she was unable to walk, but ate, drank, and played...
  7. Dogs
    Okay, so yesterday I drove a total of about 9 hrs to rescue four Aussie mix puppies from a shelter in nowheresville GA. They are only about 9 or 10 wks old, but they were going to put them to sleep just because they had been there more than 4 days. They are so darn cute! And I thought, oh...

  9. Debate Forum
    Why Animals Do Not Make Good Gifts Animals are not toys. They are sentient beings who, like us, require love and proper care to flourish. Although people who give animals as gifts invariably have good intentions, it is unfair to give an animal to anyone unless you are absolutely certain that...
  10. Guinea Pig Discussion
    I was just wondering where you got your guinea pig(s)? Are they well tempered or... what, and would you consider going back to the place that you got them from to get another? Thank you :)
  11. Dogs
    I went home to pick up a cross stitch I am making for Lucas' birthday, and found a dog! He is white with black spots and patches, and a brown and black head, kinda similar in color to a beagle or foxhound pattern on his head. He was 62 pounds, and the vet tech said his teeth look very good...

  13. General Animal Discussion
    Not sure if I should put this here or in the venting section... today we went and donated a bunch of childrens clothes and toys to our local SPCA thrift store...so while we were there we decided to go in and see the animals...it was a huge mistake! First we went in and saw the large...
  14. Cats and Dogs Classifieds
    :wave: Hi Y'all, As most of you know, I became very good friends with the breeder that I got Elvis Lee from. He is a compassionate man who loves all of his animals like they are his family. He has rescue dogs as some of his personal dogs & has worked to shut down several puppy mills here in...

  19. Rabbit Discussion
    My grandpa gave me a rabbit about a month ago and my dad put her outside and she died of a Sunstroke. I have been looking for another rabbit these past few weeks and it's like none of the pet stores have any! Only this one place called Petland has them and they are always out because they bring...
  20. Cats
    Anyone have any advice on trying to adopt out an older kitten (almost adult cat now)? We found Sebastian almost 9 months ago. Originially thought we'd like to keep him, and realized it wasn't going to work a few months later. Unfortunately, the shelters around here have been overflowing with...
