Dog Day on the Patio!


Dog Day @ Collective Arts 2017

In partnership with Collective Arts Brewery, join us for Dog Day on the patio! Just a relaxed afternoon with your dog, enjoying some tasty Collective Arts brews with like-minded dog and beer lovers. The Collective Arts Patio is located behind the brewery on Ferguson Ave across from Eastwood Park in Hamilton. Friendly dogs welcome. Don’t have a dog? No problem! Come drink beer and hang out with other people’s dogs! Ladybird will have a small table of our merch (tshirts/totes/mugs) available, and there will be food trucks too! See you on the patio!

Miami

We rescued Memphis, Maryland and Miami from Hamilton Animal Control where they found themselves as strays. While these girls were still on the streets, they had contracted an intestinal parasite called coccidia, which causes severe diarrhea, and can eventually cause organ damage if gone untreated. Thankfully, HAC staff caught the issue in time and treated the kittens with medication. When the kittens were feeling better we were happy to rescue them. They had a vet visit before heading to their foster home, and the vet was very happy with their recovery from the parasite. These three are lovely little kittens….   read more >>

Shumi


Shumi

* Shumi’s foster home decided that he should stay forever! Congrats on being adopted Shumi! * When Oakville Humane Society reached out to us when they ran out of room for small animals, we were happy to help, even if it was just to take in one critter. Welcome Shumi the hedgehog! Shumi was surrendered to OHS when his owner moved away. Thankfully, Shumi has an experienced hedgehog foster home to go to, and we’ll have an update on his progress soon. He’s a pretty sweet guy so far! Welcome to Ladybird Shumi!

Milo


Milo

Poor Milo came into Hamilton Animal Control as a stray, suffering from an eye infection. We rescued Milo from HAC and took him straight to the vet. Turns out, Milo’s eye wasn’t the only issue going on. One whole side of the inside of Milo’s mouth is abscessed and full of puss and infection. This must have been so uncomfortable for so long! Poor bunny… The vet put Milo on a series of medications for his eye and mouth, and he’s now settling in at his foster home. He has a re-check appointment next week to see if the medications…   read more >>

The Easter aftermath…


Abandoned rabbits

So, remember that thing we said about how rabbits purchased at Easter time are usually abandoned shortly after the novelty wears off? Well, Easter was just over two months ago, and here is the sad reality of why we try to spread the message of not purchasing rabbits as Easter gifts. Six of these rabbits are waiting for rescue at Hamilton Animal Control. The other two are in a high-volume shelter in Quebec waiting for rescue…all of which we have been asked to try to help. These are just a few of the hundreds of stray/abandoned/surrendered rabbits in shelters all…   read more >>

Matilda


Matilda @ shelter

Matilda came into Burlington Animal Services as a stray. It was pretty obvious on her arrival that she was suffering from some serious neglect. She was severely matted, suffering from dry eye and seemed to be blind, the insides of her ears were infected, and her teeth were rotten. Despite how awful she must have been feeling, Matilda had a smile and waggy tail for everyone she met. Burlington Animal Services got her into the vet and started on several eye medications, which helped somewhat. They also had her blood tested and had her in for a dental cleaning. Because…   read more >>

Chuck


Chuck @ foster

Chuck came into Hamilton Animal Control as a stray. He’s already neutered, so whoever he belonged to didn’t come looking for him at HAC, even though he had been there for more than two weeks. Chuck had a vet visit on his rescue day, and the vet said he was pretty healthy, other than a little bit of sparse fur and the scratches on his nose. Nothing some quality food and healing time won’t fix! He made himself comfortable right away at his foster home, and he was purring and head bonking as soon as he got out of the…   read more >>

Big thanks to Freedom Drivers volunteers for getting the guinea pigs to us safely! These two girls are pretty sweet so far! They had a vet visit and got the all clear to find their forever home. They didn’t have to go far to find that home since their foster home decided they should stay forever! We love foster fails!

Speedy

We rescued Speedy from a high-volume shelter in Quebec. Big thanks to Freedom Drivers volunteers for getting Speedy to us safely! Speedy is an older gentleman, and seems to have a bit of an issue with his eyes, but our vets will give him a thorough check-up and hopefully he’ll be healthy enough to find his forever home soon. Stay tuned for Speedy updates!

Eddie


Eddie @ HAC

Eddie was surrendered to Hamilton Animal Control by his owners because of allergies. He’s a lovely boy, and so gorgeous! He is a mix of a breed of cat called a Birman, but we don’t know for sure what he has been mixed with. No matter the breed, Eddie is a very handsome boy! We rescued Eddie from HAC and took him to the vet for a check-up. He is pretty healthy for a senior cat, but we did a blood test to make sure everything is okay internally. We should have the results soon. Eddie does need a dental…   read more >>

Petunia


Petunia

* Petunia has found her forever home with her foster family! Yay! * We rescued Petunia from Hamilton Animal Control. She was found as a stray. Petunia is a super friendly ferret, but she’s suffering from a very swollen vulva. Our vets advised that this could either be because she is not spayed, or it could be adrenal gland disease. Petunia settled in at her foster home while she had several vet visits for tests and treatment to sort out the issue. After a short time with no change, Petunia underwent surgery where it was discovered that she in fact,…   read more >>

We rescued Taco, Taffy, Tostito and Tequila! from a high-volume shelter in Quebec. Big thanks to the Freedom Drivers: Animal Rescue Transport volunteers for the lift to Hamilton! All the kittens were quite ill with an upper respiratory virus upon their arrival. After a few weeks of quality food and medication, they’re all healthy, happy and ready to find their forever homes!
