Dixie is up for adoption! Dixie is a beautiful 1.5-year-old Labrador retriever mix. She came into The Animal Guardian Society‘s care a year ago from a Kentucky pound when she was only a puppy. Her arrival to Canada was adventurous! We laugh at this story now, but it wasn’t so hilarious when it happened. She has always been a shy girl who doesn’t trust

In an effort to provide the community affordable care for their pets, TAGS offers microchipping of cats and dogs for the very affordable price of $30. But what is a microchip?

Depending on your dog’s opinion of baths, or just water in general, giving them a scrub in the tub can be a quick routine procedure or it can feel as drawn-out as waiting for a four-year-old to finish her vegetables.

We can always improve ourselves to better understand our furry companions. Chappie and Blossum (recently adopted) just graduated! Good job! Hence, TAGS introduced a Dear TAGS section in the blog where you can send your questions
Many of the dogs we see go through our program are interesting mixes. Well, one of our past adopters couldn’t keep guessing and decided to DNA test her two TAGS dogs. Cora Dusty If you guess a correct breed in the comments section of her blog by Sunday (Jan. 13), their mom, Cathy Witlox, will give you your choice of prize: either a custom
TAGS had a really good year, both fundraising- and adoption-wise. But this is a new year now, and we have prepared fresh ideas to save more dogs and cats from high-kill shelters or pounds.

For those who are not involved in rescue, some of the policies and practices of a rescue group may seem odd. While many of the policies are put in place due to past experiences, the decisions rescue groups make can sometimes be more puzzling.
