Veronica (aka Chica)

A Female Mixed Breed (Korea) presently Available For Adoption

Veronica (affectionately known as Chica) arrived at Animatch in June with her four babies (who are all in their forever homes).  She has come a long way – from being slightly feral to now showing signs of trust.  Thanks to *HSI, many dogs were rescued from a life of confinement, fear, and eventual slaughter for meat.  Even though she lived a trauma for her first year and is a product of her past, she was an excellent Mom to her babies who all thrived under her care.  On arrival, she and her pups were immediately placed with one of our Volunteer Foster Moms where Chica focused on protecting and caring for her little ones until they were adopted.  Animatch knows that there are many dogs here that also need our help, but dogs know nothing about borders.  Ignoring a dog in need is not an option and Chica desperately needed a chance. 

With her pups all safe in their homes, it was now time to focus on Chica.  What better place to start her rehabilitation than at *FIC with Virginie Forest and Alain Bonneau and their students.  For the past several weeks, she has progressed immensely.  Chica realizes that the people around her mean her no harm and want what is best for her.  She now makes eye contact with her handlers and will accept food (treats) – an incredible feat for this girl.  Chica walks on leash and displays more and more confidence each and every day.  She will spend another few weeks at FIC and she still needs to be sterilized before adoption.  Another calm, well-balanced dog to show her the ropes of being a family pet would help her greatly.  An amazing life awaits Chica and we know that there is a family who can continue to bring the best out of this brave girl.  Her ideal family would be an experienced, adult one that is ready to give her the guidance and patience she longs for.  If you feel that you want to be part of the next and final chapter of Chica’s life, please fill in the Adoption Form.

*Humane Services International is proactive in stopping the dog meat trade.  It is offering financial incentives to farmers who give up their animals to be adopted as family pets in other countries.  Canadians may find eating dog appalling and so do we.  But, before throwing stones we need to look at some of Canada’s practices (example, force-feeding ducks to produce fois gras).  There is no quality of life for the animals produced and used for meat in factory farms – they don’t even have the basic life requirements.   Please take a few minutes and educate yourself on some of the practices going on concerning animals in our country; visit http://www.animalprotectionparty.ca/factory-farming/ or https://www.humanecanada.ca/realities_of_farming_in_canada
