January 2018
Happy New Year! 
We hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday season and is ready for what is to come in 2018! 
One thing to note is that 2018 is the Year of the Dog! So while we celebrate all the fun and exciting things that are in store for us this year, remember to also celebrate with your pooch too !
 

Change a Pet’s Life Day

Did you know that there’s a special animal holiday coming up? January 24th is Change A Pet’s Life Day! If you’re an animal lover, like us, you may wish that you could help every homeless pet. While that may be too much for any one person to manage, you can definitely change the life of at least one pet. Here, a Brampton, ON vet discusses how we can really make a difference to our animal companions.

Adopting

The best thing you can do to change a pet’s life is to adopt one. Bringing a new pet into your home is a lifetime commitment, however. Before proceeding, make sure you are ready to provide your new furry friend with great care for the rest of his or her life. That said, if all the lights are green, why not give a cute, lovable animal a second chance?

Helping Pets In Need

If you’re not able to adopt right now, you can still help pets in need. Donating time, money, or goods is one great way to help. And if you know of an animal that is in a bad situation, speak up! That small act of kindness could make a huge difference. Fostering is another option. This isn’t going to be the right path for everyone, as some people have a very hard time saying good bye when the time comes, but if you have the time and money, consider giving a pet a temporary home. Ask at a local shelter for more information.

Promoting Animal Welfare

Some of the best things you can do to promote good animal welfare start right at home. Make sure that your dog or cat has been spayed or neutered, and is up to date on their vaccinations and parasite control products. Training is also very important for dogs. As for kitties, we strongly recommend keeping Fluffy safe and sound inside.

Spread The Word

Last but not least, spread the word about this pet-tastic holiday by sharing posts on social media. You can share information about animal welfare, or tell the story of how you adopted your pet. Or, post the information for a pet that needs a home. When it comes to helping animals, every little bit counts!

Foster Care Updates

Update on Phoenix...
Please meet Phoenix. This little sweetie, a basset/jack russell cross, is under one-year old and very friendly, easy going with people. She is looking for a home that will provide her with structure and lots of exercise (her jack russell characteristics will do best in this type of environment).

The rescue had her fully checked out when she first came in. She was brought fully up to date on vaccinations, and tested negative for heart worm. She has been on heart worm preventive since she arrived and we also had her spayed. Ideally she is looking for a home without other pets as she likes to be the centre of attention. A family with pets may be considered but it will depend on the home and the experience of the family as we have seen some issues with her wanting to assert dominance in a multi-dog situation.

Ideal families will also need to work on some leash manners with her as this young girl was never on a leash prior to coming into the rescue. The rescue will set up the adopting family with our trainer to assist with leash manners, and some basic socialization skills. She is housebroken and crate trained.

Do you think your home would be perfect for Phoenix? Please complete an application to be considered. Email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would like us to send you an application.

Chief Peguis Trail Extension Saturday Jan. 20 2018

Winnipeg Free Press
3:00 AM | 3 
2 minute read

THE Seven Oaks School Division is hosting a town hall forum Monday evening on the proposed western extension of the Chief Peguis Trail.

The project requires public support if it is to be selected for funding by city council so it can go ahead in 2018, said a notice issued by the division about the 7 p.m. meeting at West Kildonan Collegiate.

It’s encouraging people in the area to attend the meeting, which will feature presentations about the extension followed by a question-and-answer session.

The division is in favour of the project because, it says, it would “increase the commercial tax base, which will increase provincial education funding and help put north Winnipeg on par, developmentally speaking, with other areas of the city. This means the likelihood of better facilities in our area for community members.”

Please help bring Sadie home!

The Rural Municipality of Rosser, just northwest of Winnipeg, is investigating after a dog was killed by another dog at Little Mountain Park, in the northwest outskirts of the city, late last month.

 

Rachael Jennings said her golden retriever, Hailey, was walking in the park on Aug. 29 at about 6:30 p.m. with family members. While there, another dog, described as a German shepherd named Allie, charged Hailey on one of the park's trails and attacked the golden retriever, Jennings said. The park is an off-leash area, and neither dog was wearing a leash at the time of the attack.

Hailey took a few steps into the bushes and then died, said Jennings.

Witness Darlene Korzinksi saw the attack and described it as unprovoked.

Allie lunged for Hailey, who immediately rolled over on her back in submission, Korzinski said. The German shepherd bit Hailey on the throat and wouldn't let go.

"It happened so fast and you never think it's going to be a really bad situation," said Korzinski. "This dog was on a little mission. It wasn't like a little scrap and you break it up. Allie's owner couldn't peel her off, couldn't get her off the dog."

Hailey was about five years old and in good health, say her owners. (Submitted)

Korzinski said family members tried to save Hailey, and she tried to revive the dog through CPR but was unsuccessful.

"I tried, I couldn't tell you how many minutes," she said.

Korzinski said after family had left with Hailey's body, she confronted Allie's owner, who has not yet been identified.

"'I go, 'What are you going to do, like, anything?' And he goes, 'Well, what can I do? The dog was old and was missing a couple of teeth.'"

The owner then went back into the park to let his dog run around, she said. "I was blown away, to be honest."

Warning to other dog owners

Hailey was five years old and in good health, said Jennings. She said her children were devastated by the dog's death, describing them as "absolutely hysterical" after Hailey died.

A vet told Korzinski that Hailey's trachea may have been crushed or the bite may have caused an aneurysm.

 

Korzinksi, who is a member of the Little Mountain Park Pet Owners Association, said she printed up a poster warning owners about the incident. The poster has been put up in other area parks and it has been shared by several dog groups on Facebook.

Korzinksi said she has seen Allie and her owner at the park since the incident.

Jennings said Allie's owner has tried to call her to apologize, but said she doesn't have the strength to talk to him.

"Two wrongs don't make a right," she said. "I'm not out for blood here, I'm not out for vengeance … I just think he needs to take responsibility as a pet owner" and leash and muzzle his dog while Allie is around others.

Korzinski said she'd like to see it taken a step further.

"He's responsible for his dog. I'm not blaming his dog.… He should have been responsible for that dog a long time ago when it was showing any kind of aggression. 

"I want him to be punished. I don't want that dog to be allowed in any public place, where there's people, there's kids, there's other dogs … and I think his dog should be deemed a dangerous dog and have a special permit for it, if he's allowed to keep it."

The park is within Winnipeg's Perimeter Highway, but is technically located in the Rural Municipality of Rosser, so an investigation is the responsibility of the municipality, a city spokesperson said.

"Since Little Mountain Park is in the RM of Rosser and is outside of city limits, our bylaws do not apply so we are not able to conduct an investigation or take action in this case," the spokesperson said in an email to CBC.

"We never like to see something like this tragedy occur and we want a thorough investigation to take place with appropriate outcomes, so we have referred this incident over to the RM of Rosser for their handling."

RM of Rosser CAO Larry Wandowich said the municipality is investigating and will take appropriate action.

RM staff are not aware of any other dog deaths that have ever happened in Little Mountain Park, he added.

Clarifications

  • An earlier version of this story said Winnipeg's Animal Services Agency was conducting an investigation into the dog's death along with the Rural Municipality of Rosser. If fact, the city has referred the incident to the RM of Rosser.

Have a great Christmas and a very Happy New Year

There is a box of beef bones on the picnic table near the club house. I don't know who placed them there. I'd be very weary of it. I've contacted the City about this.

Somebody set fire to a car in the North Parking lot. The City has been contacted and will clean up the left overs. Watch out for left over wire and debris.
