Animatch boasts a centre with accommodation for a dozen dogs and a dedicated team of volunteers. West Island Blog and Animatch have come together to help find our furry friends a forever home. Please share this post to help them find a home if you can.
ELIZA-FEMALE-GERMAN SHEPHERD X – 3 MONTHS OLD DOB DEC 9
Eliza came to us through the Nordic Paws Project. She’s just a pup and eager to learn anything you can teach her. She loves romping with other dogs, so a canine companion would be fine. She hasn’t yet discovered that cats are meant to be chased, so she could live with dog savvy cats. She would have a blast with children who can take a few teething nips and don’t mind being knocked down once or twice. Obedience classes should be in her future. Because of her age, Eliza can’t be alone for more than a few hours at a time. If you think your family could commit to her for the next ten to fifteen years, fill out the form and ask for Eliza.
LULU-FEMALE-AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERD- 2 1/2 YEARS OLD
Lulu is with us because her family no longer had time for her. Australian Shepherds require a lot of physical exercise and mental stimulation. Herding, obedience classes, agility and Frisbee are all great outlets. She is somewhat overweight because she wasn’t getting enough exercise. Lulu isn’t comfortable around small children, so an adult home or one with teenagers would be best. At 2 1/2 years old, her puppy shenanigans are behind her. What you see is what you get. If you like what you see and can love and commit to her, fill out the form and ask for Lulu.
OSCAR-MALE- COCKER SPANIEL X – 6 1/2 YEARS OLD
Oscar is at Animatch because his family no longer had time for him. He loved being part of a family and can’t wait to meet his new FOREVER family. He is overweight at 45 lbs so you have to be able to say no when he looks at you with hungry eyes. Cocker’s ears have to be watched for infections and he is being treated for one right now. At almost seven years old, Oscar is past the crazy puppy stage and is dying to show his new pack how he can sit and walk on leash. He gets along with other dogs but would be just as happy to be your one and only. If you think you’re the one to travel with him through middle age and his senior years, right to the end, fill out the form and ask for Oscar.
YOKI-FEMALE-HUSKY X – 4 YEARS OLD
Yoki and her sister Maka are not only litter-mates, but they were also adopted together from Animatch. There is also Xoco, another sister from another mother. Their family is going through some changes and all three find themselves back with us. Yoki is sweet and playful. She loves dogs and humans but NOT cats. In case you don’t know, Huskies shed a lot. They also love the outdoors, especially in winter. If you would love to have a companion (or two) while you snowshoe or cross country ski, fill out the form and ask for Yoki (or Yoki and Maka).

Animatch has humble beginnings. It was founded in 1999 by Helen Lacroix, a busy wife and mother. Her grassroots movement started around her kitchen table. Helen credits her parents with instilling in her their love and concern for animals. Today, Animatch boasts a centre with accommodation for a dozen dogs and a dedicated team of volunteers.
