Carlsberg – Adoption Pending


Carlsberg is doing very well, he made it through the healing very well.  He got his pins removed just the other day.  His foster mom has of course fallen in love with the little dude, and is seriously thinking of becoming his forever mom.

To date we have raised $700 for Carlsberg’s surgery and still owe about $2800.  Even though he may be soon to be adopted, he is still worth raising the money for…please don’t forget about Carlsberg.

To donate you can call Canada West veterinary specialists directly, or cheques can be sent to our society.

Thank you to all those who have helped so far!  Carlsberg thanks you!

Carlsberg is a 15 week old Pug Chihuahua cross.  He had an unfortunate accident.  I know we all think that puppies are not as fragile as they really are, simply jumping off the bed and landing incorrectly can be dangerous.  And that is exactly what Carlsberg did.



He has fractured both of his front elbows very badly.  It took 2 separate surgeries.   Poor guy had to just sit on his butt (literally) while waiting.  It is very unfortunate and very sad that his owners could not afford this surgery and did not have pet insurance in place….they have chosen to surrender the little guy.

We unfortunately do not have the money either to pay for his surgery of $4500 (give or take).  And we certainly didn’t want to see this little guy PTS so young,  but again we need to raise the funds to pay his bill.  This was a surgery that simply could not wait like some of the luckier ones.  We usually have time to raise funds prior to going ahead….Carlsberg was simply in too much pain and stalling was not an option.

If you are able to donate even $20 towards Carlsberg’s fund – we graciously accept.  If we could get 225 people to donate $20 each, we will have reached the goal.  Can you help?   Donations can be make directly to Canada West Veterinary Clinic by calling 604 473 4882.  Or cheques can be mailed to 235 – 2607 Kingsway, Vancouver, BC V5R 5H4.  Be sure to make the cheque out to Canada West.

Carlsberg IS NOT currently up for adoption.  He has a few months of healing, rechecks, pin removals ahead of him.  We are not accepting applications for Carlsberg at this time.  Please continue to check this website for updates.

Any inquiries regarding Carlsberg should be made directly with the Dhana Metta Rescue Society via email, please do not contact Canada West for this information.

    How is Carlsberg doing? I haven’t seen any updates since July. I am curious to know when he will be put up for adoption.
