The Peterborough Humane Society has eight healthy, happy and busy potcake puppies that are now available for adoption.
These adorable pups from the Bahamas have been in the care of the Peterborough Humane Society for the past six weeks and are now ready to go to their forever homes. Puppies are not often available, so this is a wonderful opportunity for the community and the team at the PHS to enjoy the wonder of cute, wiggly puppies.
There has been much interest in these puppies—Embrace, Destra, Happy, Welcome, Beta, Alpha, Delta and Friend. The cost to adopt a puppy is $500. They have received their Rabies vaccine, are spayed or neutered, and have been microchipped.
The puppies are a variety of mixed breeds but will all grow to become medium sized dogs.
An application must be presented to the team at the shelter (385 Lansdowne Street East) in person between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Thursday, January 31st. (Note: No applications over the phone or email will be accepted.)
All applications will be reviewed by their Operations Manager to ensure that they find these beautiful pups their new forever home!
The Peterborough Humane Society advocates for the welfare of animals by improving their lives, alleviating suffering, rescuing, providing shelter, healing, facilitating adoption and reducing pet overpopulation.
Millbrook’s pride and joy Serena Ryder, who attended PCVS in Peterborough, has just released a new Christmas video called “Christmas Kisses”. The title track from her very first holiday album, the song spotlights rescue dogs from the Ontario SPCA and dog influencers wearing festive styles.
One of the dog influencers starring in the video is none other than Lakefield’s Owen the Griff, who has 73,000+ fans on Instagram.

“One of Serena’s people reached out to us via email,” Owen’s owner/”Momager” Lisa Besseling tells PTBOCanada. “It was filmed at a small studio in Toronto. We were really happy to be a part of this and help bring awareness to supporting animal shelters at this time of year.”
On Friday, November 9th some members of the Peterborough Humane Society team including Executive Director Shawn Morey and Manager of Development & Outreach Susan Dunkley travelled to Montreal to pick up eight dogs transferred there from a South Korean meat farm.

This was part of a collaboration with Humane Society International, and resulted in PHS giving these dogs a new chance at life. They will soon be up for adoption here in Peterborough, looking for their forever homes.
