Adoptable Animals

Dogs available for adoption

Porom

History : My Mama was a stray in one of Hope Lives Here’s target communities north of Edmonton, who was at risk of being shot if she wasn’t brought into care. When a volunteer went to attempt to capture her and some other stray dogs, she just hopped right in her truck and came to one of our foster whelping homes here in Edmonton. Early one October morning, I came into the world with a bang! I was so much smaller than my siblings, one push and mama had me flying into the world!
Description : Porom has been nothing short of a blessing. She is doing amazing with her potty training, she has accidents when her foster parents are not fast enough but it’s almost always at the door. She absolutely loves playing with her mama, and would probably grow to love having another dog in the home. She’s a sweet girl who is always willing to have a snuggle, and she tries so very hard during training sessions. She is very appropriate with her foster family’s resident cats, one of them even likes playing with her. She’s such a sweet and mild little girl, she would love a family to call her forever one!

Oakley

Oakley, this beautiful gentle giant was surrendered to a local Edmonton facility. They reach out to us to find him a family that would love and respect who he is and what he needs for a fulfilling life.
Oakley is an affectionate dog with a goofy personally.  He is unsure around new people and needs slow and controlled introductions, at his pace. 
With his loving nature and experience he will attempt to overprotect his owner, therefore he will thrive with consistent boundaries and an understanding of who he is. 
Oakley needs an experienced home that will follow the training program provided.

Cats available for adoption

Christian Grey
Bob
Bob with his Santa hat on!

Bob & Christian Grey

This beautiful bonded pair was rescued from an alleyway in Edmonton and brought into care as kittens. Since day one, they have been scared of humans. Unfortunately, they were adopted out as kittens and returned (due to no fault of their own) two years later. This certainly didn’t help their fearfulness of humans. 

Bob and Christian Grey are looking for a quiet home with a patient and loving human(s).

Boseman

History : Boseman (aka black panther) came into our care because of an owner surrender. They sadly disregarded his weight management and chose to leave him behind.

Description: Boseman’s stealthy 25lb figure moves quite fast to play or hide. He’s the sweetest big scaredy cat. He is very low maintenance. All he needs is a place to relax, portioned food, and a little love. He’s perfect if you like having a pal around but not too needy. He enjoys his brush and scratch post (which he gets to take with him if you’d like) and you will rarely hear him meow.

Winning over Boseman’s trust warms the soul. We love coming home from work to see his happy big beautiful eyes waiting for us. If you want in on Boseman’s second chance at life please respond and we will assist you in his transition.

Wynona

History: I came into care as an young cat who has my own litter of kittens

Description: Wynona has had a long journey of recovery from unknown yet deep trauma. She is comfortable in her foster home now. She has made friends with her catmates. When she lets go and plays like a kitten it is the most heartwarming sight! She is fine with the dogs too, even if they sniff her too much. With her people she is happy to coexist. She will
accept pets (even enjoy them) with a calm gentle approach. How can you resist her ridiculously cute face!?

Carlos

History: Abandoned on the north end of Edmonton

Description: Carlos is a character! A bit of a picky eater but once he finds the food he likes he LOVES it. Carlos has a hollow leg when it comes to food and he will let you know when he has a rumbly in his tumbly. A very talkative boy he will keep you company with a good chat and sit beside you as you give him some good pets and attention. A very playful kitty, he likes to have fun with found objects, a paper bag rolled into a ball, a stick, a lost hair tie. If you have lost something Carlos will find it for you and once he is done having fun with it, he may give it back. He is a very confident and affectionate gentleman but can have a bit of catitude when he is in a mood, he likes to do things in his own time & own agenda! Carlos would make the perfect companion for someone who is looking for a good friend and someone to keep them entertained with kitty kat antics

Hickory

History: We were contacted about a cute kitty that showed up at a property and they had done everything they could to confirm he wasn’t owned before contacting us. We took him in and he received all the vetting he needed

Description : Hickory is a sweet, cuddly boy that loves to give kisses. He enjoys toys with bells and playing with his foster brothers. He has a huge personality and he would love to show you how much love he has to give

Frankie

History : Frankie came into care as a semi feral teenager. Frankie has come a long ways but still takes time to warm up.

Description: This handsome young man is Frankie. He’s about a year and a half old and is the king of lazing around the house. Frankie loves to hang out with his foster friends but frankie does not want to be approached, he likes to make the first move. He’s curious and playful, and he has no issues with other cats. He is a super chill floofer that needs a quiet home and a patient owner who will let him hang out and just be himself. Frankie loves to explore, you know he’s on an adventure when you hear him chirping and squeaking, it’s the cutest noise ever! So if you have a quiet home and a window sill to chill in, Frankie wants to call it his forever

Marbles

History: Marbles can in as an owner surrender from an older couple that could no longer care for him. He is slowly coming out of his shell with his foster.

Description: Marbles is a 6 year old domestic long haired cat. He currently lives with 1 other cat & 2 small calm dogs who he interacts with on his own terms. This big boy loves his soft food, napping, & watching the birds flutter around on the balcony. He is exceptionally shy & skiddish with loud noises. It took marbles about 2 months to come out of hiding… but once he does he loves attention & to be brushed. Marbles is looking for a quiet home with someone patient & understanding of his needs

Nala

History : Nala was found outside alone and hungry. She fit in with her foster family immediately and is healthy and ready for her new home.

Description : Nala is very affectionate and social. She thinks she is part of the dog crew and will sit at your feet and wait nicely for her treat. Her favourite thing to do right now, is ride around the house on your shoulders. She is one of a kind! She is learning how to sit nicely for her nail trims and will tell you when her food dish is empty. She loves to watch the lights on the Christmas tree and has surprisingly left all the sparkly decorations alone. That’s a miracle in itself!

Sampson

History: Rescued from the streets of Edmonton Sampson is a survivor. Although he is independent, he does like cuddles before bed. He acts more like a dog than a cat, he comes when he’s called and takes his medication twice a day like a champ! Sampson has hyperthyroidism. To live his best healthy life, Sampson is required to take medication twice a day. (This cost approximately $40/month). 

Cinnamon & Sugar

History : These girls were abandoned in an industrial area with their mama who was pregnant. It’s unclear how long they were abandoned and without human contact but they came into care in October.

Desciption : Just like cinnamon toast you can’t have it without sugar. These two girls are a bonded pair they are the sweetest girls who love to play and get pets. They love to play wrestle with your fingers and they are soo gentle. Cinnamon is the sweetest girl who will literally jump for pets ! She lives to chase feather toys and springs. Sugar loves other cats she’s very playful and cute, she can be shy but having her sisters helps her remain confident in her surroundings. These two like to watch tv and try to get the moving people or pets on tv! They are so entertaining you won’t even need to turn on a tv. Can they come live with you ?

Tom & Jerry

History: Tom and Jerry were trapped with their feral Mom at about 7 weeks old on an acreage
 
Description: Tom (lighter tabby) is the life of the party. He’s always purring and wanting your attention. Very cuddly and loves to play. He is the confident one of the two. He is going to make a great snuggle buddy.
Jerry (darker tabby) is the more shy of the two boys. He really relies on his brother to see that humans are not going to hurt him. He has come a very long way in his time with his Foster Family. He purrs the second you pick him up and loves to cuddle as well. Just takes him longer to warm up.
Both boys are very sweet and gentle but their start in life will require their new Family to be patient as they come around and learn that they won’t be hurt. Preferably with gentle older children.
Adoption fee for a bonded pair is $325. Both will be neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and dewormed.

Mercedes

History : Mercedes was brought into care as a trap and rescue. She was seen giving birth and being attacked by birds. She ran under a deck and the home owner contacted the rescue. Mercedes was watched and fed by the home owner until it was confirmed there was indeed babies and they were big enough to catch. The babies and mama were taken into care when babies were about 2 weeks. They were called the fast car crew. Mercedes was an amazing mama to her three babies Maserati Ferrari and Bugatti. Now this beautiful mama deserves her very own special home, could
that possibly be with you??

Desciption : Mercedes is a sweet but shy girl. She would prefer to be queen of her own castle. She does very well keeping her human servants happy, she is very affectionate and sweet once she warms up. You see she was a young mom and had to work hard to stay safe and protect her little ones so she’s cautious of new surroundings and people. Don’t let that stop you from adopting this sweetheart. As her current foster servant works from home and Mercedes is very happy to sit on top of the computer and graciously allow her servant to adorn her in pets and chin scratches all awhile she purrs and rolls around in the cutest display of kitty love ever. She loves to curl up on your lap while you work away or just watch TV. She is also learning to enjoy life as kitten herself as she was under a year when she had to be a mommy. So she’s now discovering how fun toys and playing with them are… she loves to roll in boxes with cat nip stuffier and fight the animated moving fish. Cat nip makes her so silly and she will chase feather toys and run away with it once she catches it: Princess Mercedes would be happiest in a home where she would get tons of attention and somebody who has a little bit of patience to let her come out of her shell 

Lizzie

History : Lizzie’s owner unfortunately past away in August and no family relatives could take her. She had to be strong and lived by herself for 2 weeks before her foster family could rescue her.

Description: Lizzie was super upset about the moving. Her foster mom and dad didn’t give up on her, they were saying Hi everyday and would talk to her for few hours. She put some restrictions in place on day 1 and insisted that we follow them ; we had to keep 2 meters of distance with her and not touch her. It took her 10 days to figure out we were a great family, that we didn’t mean no harm to her and that she could be herself with us : a cute furball who loves snuggles and belly rubs everyday, multiple times a day is even better. She can purr very loudly. If you don’t pet her, she rubs her face against yours and ask for some. She has a good behaviour, she follows her fosters everywhere in the house too.

She loves dried food and can manage her own portions. She decided she wasn’t scared of the dogs after 14 days. They know she’s the boss. If she has to decide between fish and chicken, she will definitely choose chicken.

Theo & Tigress

History : Theo lived in a garage with little human contact before he came into care with HLH. He is now a happy house cat.
Tigress came in with her brothers and sisters, all feral kittens. She has taken the longest to warm up to people.
Theo is showing her people are ok.

Description : These two enjoy running around the house, playing in boxes and napping together. Theo is a lap cat and Tigress is slowly trying to join him there, she’s still a little skittish. They love treats, laying in their perch, in the sun, watching the world go by.
They are a bonded pair and must be adopted together 

Cinnamon & Sugar

Nimbus

History: Family surrender

Description: I am a larger than life, gorgeous king. I will be the boss in any type of home. Food is the way to my heart. I enjoy scratches and am affectionate, but so far in my foster home I have not been a lap cat. You will never regret bringing me into your family as I am a living breathing work of art!

Mark

History: he came from a hoarding situation and was very human shy in the beginning. He spent a long time in foster care until he came to his last foster home and has flourished.

Description: I have come a long way building up my confidence and trust in people! I will need a quiet home with people that are willing to help me continue to recover. Another confident cat in the home is a must. I love head and neck scratches and will just melt into your hand purring! I hope to find my furever human to love!

Buttercup

History : This little girl was found outside crying in a truck engine during the first cold snap in November ber. She was malnourished and underweight and frozen but despite that her little cries and her persistent to be saved helped us bring her into rescue.

Desciption : Buttercup is the most cuddly little thing. She lives to be carried and wrapped up like a baby…. She purrs so loud the second her humans touch her …. She loves fuzzy shiny toy balls the soft felt kind. She will carry them all over and chase them for hours. She is so curious and silly it’s a joy to play and snuggle with her. She’s got some really special physical qualities she’s got extra toes on all of her feet making her a polydactyl and just the tiniest little bit of orange just on the tip of her tail all in all she’s a gorgeous girl inside and out and just needs her own comfy place to call home.
