The Winnipeg Humane Society’s (WHS) dog adoptions rooms are completely full. The shelter is asking for anyone who is considering adding a dog to their family to come forward and adopt.

Lila is available for adoption at The WHS

As we prepare to spend time to celebrate the season with our loved one, we feel particularly disheartened for our shelter animals who are waiting to find their family

This Friday, December 14, The WHS will dramatically reduce the adoption fee to $28 in order to find a forever home for 28 dogs.

“As we prepare to spend time to celebrate the season with our loved one, we feel particularly disheartened for our shelter animals who are waiting to find their family,” said Bill McDonald, WHS CEO.

Here are two examples of the 28 dogs that are available for adoption:

Lumberjack
On Aug. 15, 12 Lumberjack was found as a stray off of Lagimodiere in rough shape. Our veterinarians discovered he was positive for Heartworm, meaning he would have to spend months in a foster home getting treatment and having restricted exercise. Our veterinarians also discovered he had an untreated infection that left his ear canal badly damaged. He then underwent an ear canal ablation, which is the complete removal of the ear canal. We also determined that he has allergies to certain food. Lumberjack is a beautiful dog with a graceful prance.

Hailey
Hailey was brought to The Winnipeg Humane Society with serious wounds causing us to believe she may have been hit by a car. X-rays revealed that she had a painful fracture to her left hind leg. Our veterinarians operated to repair the fracture, putting in a bone plate that will stay with her for life. After her surgery she spent months in a loving foster home where she received daily rehab treatments like massage and physiotherapy. If you see Hailey now you’d never guess she’s been though all of this! Her leg has healed nicely and she’s no longer in any pain.

The 28 dogs for $28 promotion will be held on Friday, December 14, 10am – 7pm. To find out if you are ready for a dog, please visit: [http://www.winnipeghumanesociety.ca/are-you-ready.
