Today was the HAPPIEST day ever.
During the month of October, Earth Rated is raising awareness on the awesomeness that is animal adoption. Whiskey didn’t come from a rescue or a shelter, but some of her bestest friends were adopted into loving and adventurous homes.
Tina Turner was found by the side of a road in LA at 8 weeks old and 4 lbs with a broken leg and tail. She was brought to Star Paws Rescue in Marina Del Rey and brought to emergency surgery. She had her tail removed and the largest bone in her leg was replaced by a metal beam. She sat in the shelter for 4 months before @ninafarrauto adopted her forever and now spends her time conquering mountains and hearts everywhere.
Jasper is a Husky show dog, born to a show line in Quebec and sold to someone who wanted to show him. His voice box was removed by this owner, and consequently it got her disqualified for doing so. She put him up for sale and a family in Ottawa took him home. With 4 kids under the age of 7 and newborn, Jasper didn’t get exercised and lived in their backyard. Four months later they put him up for sale and that’s when @tri_another_day and @ninafarrauto picked him up. He now happily runs, pulls his owners, roams the wildlands and snuggles with his sister @huskyandthebochi.
Kal was adopted from Vancouver SPCA when she was 7 weeks old, smart as a whip and raring to go. She’d been surrendered the week before and had three broken toes. Kal’s now had seven amazing years of rambunctious adventures with her owner, with many more to come!
To celebrate Day One, Whiskey is donating a stack of Earth Rated Adoption Kits to the Calgary Humane Society. These kits are designed to give new pupper parents everything they need for a successful Day One and beyond.
