Beauty – ADOPTED

Beauty is a beautiful girl (hence her name LOL), very royal, affectionate, and loving. She is a gorgeous cat with one shining eye.  It glitters in the light and gives her such great character.

She was caught in one of our traps, while we were trapping ferals. We have held on to her Since September 17, 2008 and no one has come for her.

Her tattoo was registered to CARES, however, from the last conversation we had with them, they were full. We feel an hope that Beauty can find a new forever home, she deserves a family to call her own before Christmas.

If you are interested in giving Beauty a home, please email us for an adoption application. Adoption fee applies.

Chihuahuas in need – Puppy Mill Raid PLEASE GIVE to Help

There is a puppy mill breeder in New Orleans that is going to be shut down for her inhumane practices.  A request has been made asking us to take as many as we can, as fast as we can, after they are raided and the dogs are confiscated.

BUT without the funds to transport these babies to Vancouver, they will be left behind, to ultimately be euthanized, and that would break my heart.

I am asking all of you to close your eyes and put yourselves in the bodies of these little chihuahuas.  Feel their fear, sadness, desperation, pain, illness, and the brief excitement and happiness they experience during their so seldom human encounters.  With your help, we can give these dogs happiness, love, contentment, fulfillment, and a life worth living.

This will be a transport with a high cost.  The exchange rate is again so high, and because the price of gas has increased – the flight fees have also increased….some of you may ask again – if it costs so much, is it really worth it?

My answer is yes, these lives are worth every penny.  If you see them when they arrive, how emaciated, terrified, and sad their faces look – and then see them after a month or so with their new family, you would also feel so rewarded….It is a wonderful feeling.  And again it is so worth it.

Sweet Chihuahuas Video Please Watch

I want to let you all know why I do what I do.   I love all dogs, cats and other critters…..but there’s something about the chi personality and the way they look at you with those lovey eyes, I just can’t resist.  Some may say that there are enough dogs here that need homes, and yes I agree.  That is why we also strive to do all we can to help local dogs as often as we can.

However, in the U.S. there are so many dogs that need our help, and I will not turn a blind eye.  I would not feel good about myself if I said NO to these highly adoptable dogs.  I would not be able to sleep knowing that I left them all behind to ultimately face the death penalty for simply being born.

As I have learned from past experiences, I am sure that there will be a number of folks who will decide to criticize my choice to save these chihuahuas from the United States.  I accept the opinions of others and cannot change the way they feel.  I will stand by quietly and listen, but my heart has always guided me down the right paths, and I choose to follow.

Here I sit, hoping and praying that what I have written helps you understand my view, and that many of you find it in your hearts to help these wonderful chihuahuas find their way to Vancouver.

Anything and everything helps.  Our goal is to raise $5000 for this rescue, and if we raise more than that, we can be sure that other little ones can come too.

You can send your donations to our mailing address, or you can make a direct deposit into Dhana Metta’s Vancity account (branch 2 account #682377 Vancouver).  TO MAKE A DONATION BY PAYPAL, OUR ACCOUNT IS UNDER dhanametta@yahoo.ca AND IT IS UP AND RUNNING!!

PACO (seen above) came to Vancouver from New Orleans in 2007, he was emaciated, dehydrated, and terrified of people, cats, noises and just about everything.  He had no idea about love, affection, even sleeping on a bed.  He slept in corners, sitting up, his eyes always open, to be sure no body was going to sneak up on him to hurt him.

Look at the smile on his face now. He is happy, healthy, loving, and you sure can see it…this is what makes all of what we do so worth every penny….

Bubba on the left and BB on the right hand side.  Bubba was rescued from a Northern BC chihuahua breeder, badly abused at 8 weeks old, puppies should never be so scared of humans.  Bubba loves his new life.  And BB what a doll, she came from New Orleans with Paco, and they are both happy dogs.  A better life forever.

Clover and Sage

Clover and Sage, my original girls…….who started this chihuahua fiasco!!

Help stop the suffering, please donate to help these chihuahuas come to Canada, and please please educate yourselves and all your friends about the negative effects of puppymills….watch the videos on YouTube, remember what you see, and let’s all work together to shut down as many as possible.

 

Education about Puppymills

I post this video to hopefully educate Belinda on what puppy mills are all about.  If you think confiscating these dogs is actually “stealing them from their owners”, you have a strange way of “loving dogs”.  Do you APPROVE of the conditions in which dogs are kept at PuppyMills and BYB’S??

BELINDA’S  COMMENT (today) :

It sounds as though you are trying to raise money and promoting an illegal theft of dogs that are raised in conditions of which you disapprove. Then, later apparently you plan to remove these stolen dogs not just across state lines, but across international borders? Please, rethink this madness, it is nothing short of domestic terrorism. If you love dogs, donate to your local shelter, or -better yet- donate some of your time to help take care of those local dogs that need you. Please don’t take part in this latest trend of stealing dogs from their owners with publicity so that new, horrible laws are promoted that will end our lives with dogs as we know it; Oprah and Wayne have no love for animals, they only lust for power and control over your choices!

Those who know us and have visited us, get to see for themselves our true love for dogs.  The many adopters who have been to our place to meet and pick up their new family members are those who understand us the best.

BE SURE YOU HAVE THE TIME TO WATCH THIS VIDEO AS IT IS A HALF AN HOUR.

More Beautiful Wonderful Chihuahuas

UPDATE DECEMBER 3, 2008 – DEXTER HAS BEEN ADOPTED!!!

Well, 2 more wonderful little souls have blessed us with their company.

Dex is the little white and tan dude with huge ears, what a gentle soul.  Great with other dogs, not an ounce of aggression, integrated into our pack very smoothly and easily.  Even met our cats and paid no attention to either of them.  Poor little dude looks like he had a bit of a dog fight, with a scar on his nose.

UPDATE:  NEO HAS BEEN ADOPTED!!!

Neo is a gorgeous tri-color deer chihuahua…also very gentle natured.  He had no problem with any of the other dogs either.   Both these precious beings arrived on Saturday from New Orleans, thanks to Gloria and Anthony for sponsoring their way here to Vancouver.
