About Me:

Hi, I'm Pepper!

My siblings, mom and I are still together.  I'm still nursing and will be available for adoption soon!

I love exploring new places and things! I am an adventurous young kitten looking for a family to help me learn and grow.

I get along with all my siblings and am very curious about older cats, but would want to make sure they won't beat me up before I try to play! I need attention, love, affection, and lots of playtime!

I have had limited time with dogs, lots of small introductions, treats and supervision to make sure I am safe!

I haven't had much time with small humans, I am small myself, so I'm sure we'll get along, as long as they are gentle, and can read my body language and respect when I want to be alone.

 

My Purrrfect Match

  • will be ready for a 15+ year commitment!
  • will provide lots of enrichment, scratching towers, toys, catio etc.
  • will keep my health in mind and take me into the vet for yearly checkups.
  • understand that I am still developing and my personality may change over time!
  • will keep me safe and happy, forever.

My Story:

My mom and her siblings came to the shelter and shortly after found their forever homes! Turns out, my mom had a secret, she was pregnant with us!

We were born at WAG and have been with our mom since. Our mom and we were accidental litters, as cute as we are, litters are lots of time and work.

Sunny – Adopted August 2020!

73073008_417966555765508_5223478387183452160_n

Sunny

Breed: Cattledog Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 2 years
Size: Medium
Where you can find me: At WAG

Energy Level: Medium
Training Goals: Overcoming my fears of meeting new people, mandatory training sessions booked in with a WAG approved trainer post-adoption
House trained? Yes
Kids? No
Cats? Yes, as long as we get along! 
Dogs? Yes, though I like my own space!
Medical Needs: Regular Veterinary Care

 

My Perfect Match:

-Is willing to take a few trips to WAG to get to know me before taking me home. Strangers make me nervous and need to know how to interact with me.

- Has a quiet home, I love my friends, but I don't like having new people in my home. 

-Will continue with my training. I am very smart and need work on my stranger danger.

-Has experience with reactive dogs. I have a bit of a "history" but if you know how to manage me and keep me feeling safe and surrounded by people who will respect my needs, I am such a good girl!

-Has lots of patience and understanding. I was a fearful puppy and was continually put into situations where I felt unsafe so my fear was reinforced. It's up to you to keep me feeling safe!

-Is pro-muzzle. I need to wear one in public spaces to keep me and everyone else safe and secure.

-Has a good ability to recognize and understand a dogs body language and respect it.

-Will love me forever no matter what!!

About Me:

I love to run and play with my dog friends, learn new tricks, and snuggle with my favorite people. I am sweet and quirky and playful when I am feeling happy and safe.

I have been bounced around a lot and I'm looking for some consistency so I can relax.

I am extremely nervous of strangers and will protect myself from this perceived threat, will you put in the time and effort to work through a training plan with me??

My Story:

I came to WAG last year as a surprise puppy that my mom's family wasn't ready to care for. I was adopted when I was still young, but my fears were not managed properly. I became more fearful and they could not take care of me how I needed.

If you cannot adopt me at this time please consider making a donation to WAG!

Smokey – Adopted October 2018

41721352_557192914698694_1707663066855899136_n

Smokey's Happy Tail

Smokey was surrender to WAG when his owner of 13 years could no longer care for him. This sweet boy knew that he was being left behind and was very unhappy about it. He did not like living at the shelter, so shortly after his arrival, WAG found him a foster home at which he could be comfortable in. Much to the surprise of the staff, Smokey recieved an amazing application for his adoption and this lucky senior was adopted out before 50 days in our care!

 

My Story:

My mom and my siblings from another litter were abandoned in the woods. A nice man was camping overnight, saw her and her kittens, and knew we needed help! An off-duty WAG staff came to help with a team of volunteers. After visiting the vet it was discovered that my mom was already pregnant with me and my siblings. She had us in a foster home and we are now ready to find our own family!

Misha – Adopted June 2017

Misha was surrendered to WAG in April 2017. At the time she was brought to us, she had been physically abused, starved, and had a hole in her tail to the point where staff could see the bone. Despite this past, Misha was very quick to trust staff and would instantly plop into their laps for cuddles and belly rubs. We're pretty sure the endless supply of food and treats we were giving her helped win her over! It was difficult to get the hole in Misha's tail to heal because she was constantly wagging it - causing the bandage to fly off and the tag to hit corners, walls, door frames, opening up the wound. But with time and patience we were able to heal her tail with no long term issues.

Misha had a few blood tests done while in WAG's care and it was discovered that she was in very early stages of kidney disease. It was upsetting that a dog that had been through so much already, had something else to set her back in life.

Misha won the hearts of the staff, her amazing foster home, and the community of Whistler. No one wanted to see her leave but everyone wanted her to find the most amazing permanent home. Luckily, a loving family from Vancouver Island made the trip to Whistler a couple times so they could begin to form a bond with Misha. They fell in love with her and knowing all her history and what would come in the future, they whole heartedly wanted to bring her into their lives forever.

Misha has settled well in her new home. We brought Misha home in June of 2017 and have since learned what an amazing animal she is. She has finally settled in and it feels if like she's always been a part of the family. She is playful, energetic and most of all full of love which she shows us with cuddles and super wet sloppy kisses. Misha absolutely loves playing catch more than anything and has a bit of a treat problem. She has learned many new tricks and loves performing, for a price, hence the treat problem haha.

Although Misha still has some reactive behavior around other dogs, her trust in people has improved immensely and she especially loves children.

Misha's hobbies include exploring the vast trails of Vancouver Island, barking at the mail man and sneaking on to the couch when no one is looking.

All in all Misha has proven that she has a heart of gold and we are proud to say she has found her fur-ever home.

Max – Adopted September 2016

P1080247

Max was surrendered to WAG during our Wellness Clinic in August 2016. He was limping at the time of surrender and his previous owner suspected he had been hit by a car. When Max was neutered, we also x-rayed his front limbs. He was diagnosed with severe elbow dysplasia, a congenital condition. Max's new family knew about his condition and the care that would be needed going forward and still couldn't wait to bring him home. We were happy to receive an update about life with the large puppy:

unnamed

"We have now had the pleasure of having Max for over a year now. He loves his walks and playing in the water. He is good to all dogs. We have yet to see him growl!! He has been a superb addition to our family and his endless patience and calmness around our son is so appreciated. Both his front legs (bilateral moderate/severe elbow dysplasia) seems to be holding thus far - there are times, Max certainly limps more but seems to recover well.

Thanks again for giving us the opportunity to adopt Max - we are so grateful."

Belle aka Hayleigh – Adopted July 2017

Belle was surrendered to WAG at one of our Wellness Clinics along with her mom and 4 other siblings. There were initially 9 puppies in Belle's litter, however 4 of her siblings died before they were brought to WAG's care. All of the remaining 5 pups and mom were in rough condition: malnourished and severely dehydrated. Everyone was watched closely during the first 24 hours at WAG, as we knew these were the most critical hours. Thankfully all pups made it through the night and continued to thrive while at WAG. As they became healthier, their energy and in turn playfulness increased. Our "Beauty and the Beast" litter did not stay around WAG for long, all puppies were adopted after a few weeks. Belle and her sister Plumette were the first of the litter to be adopted. Although they went to separate homes, family members adopted the girls so they still get to grow up together. The following is an update from Belle's, now Hayleigh, mom.

I thought you all might like to hear how Hayleigh is doing since we adopted her a couple of months ago. She is getting so big now! Growing up way too fast.
She loves her kitty Mylie and Mylie follows her around just waiting for cuddles but mostly receives slobber instead. Only took half a day for them to be best friends. 
Hayleigh has learned sit, lay down and leave it. We are currently working on shake a paw, which is slow going but she will get it soon.
Piper (Plumette) and Hayleigh love when they get play time together and they still snuggle when its time for naps. Piper is doing well with her training as well.
I can't thank you guys enough for allowing me to adopt this adorable little baby. I love her dearly.

Leo and Pumpkin – Adopted January 2017



Leo and Pumpkin were surrendered to WAG for the second time and they definitely weren’t happy about it. They both have a lot of love to give but really struggled to trust humans. Leo was a lot more outgoing than Pumpkin, as he started to feel more comfortable he would come out for some chin scratches, however Pumpkin was quite shy and didn’t like to venture out too much. They have spent most of their lives together so finding a home for both of them was a must! It was a bit of a challenge, but after 78 days in the shelter they found their purr-fect match!

Since being in their forever home, they have both come out of their shell and are absolutely thriving! They are enjoying sleeping by the warm fire and snuggling up on the couch together. All they needed was a patient and loving home to help them gain trust for humans again.











Leo and Pumpkin are doing great and we are having a blast with these two! Leo (the horse) is such a curious George and a very nice cat. He lets you know when he’s cranky but is quite gentle. He gets a little frisky with pumpkin from time to time and Pumpkin tunes him a bit!

They chase each other all over the house, snuggle together in the chair, love the fireplace and love bed time! Leo especially loves bed time and let’s us know when it’s time. He starts to chatter more and paces by the stairs. We are really enjoying their company and seems that they are too! 🙂





Pumpkin is really coming out of her shell and is exploring the whole house and follows/ chases Leo everywhere….can’t believe the change in her already since bringing her home! They are up on all furniture and love the water fountain and running tap water.

Both are chatty and snuggle in the night/ morning. Really happy to be able to give them a good home and “wings” to fly.
