Critteraid pleads for foster home for two dogs found in poor health in freezing cold in Joe Rich

Dogs desperate for care

The Critteraid Animal Sanctuary in Summerland is putting out one last urgent request for 2022, after finding two pups thin as a rake out in the cold in the Joe Rich area.

The rescue posted they need a foster home or homes, to take in one or both of these boys as soon as possible on Saturday.

"We, unfortunately, don't know much about what has happened to them, but we do know they are emaciated and were found on a logging road in the Joe Rich area in absolutely freezing temps," they shared in their Facebook post.

"They will need TLC and some medical attention. We will have vet attention and then an assessment of their condition will help with the next steps."

The pups, temporarily named Ben and Jerry, will need to go with an experienced dog owner that can help nurture them back to health.

"We are asking for their foster home or homes to not have any other dogs at this time because we do not have a history of behaviour to follow. A fenced-in yard for safety as well would be an added bonus."

Details are listed below for a bio on the dogs:

Name: Ben

  • Breed: Cane Corso / Hound cross - best guess
  • Age: Unknown
  • Gender: Male
  • Medical: Intact - most likely unvaccinated - will need to see a vet asap once a foster home is established
  • Coloration: Tan

Name: Jerry

  • Breed: Cane Corso / Hound cross - best guess
  • Age: Unknown
  • Gender: Male
  • Medical: Intact - most likely unvaccinated - will need to see a vet asap once a foster home is established
  • Coloration: Tan and White

Those who can give one or both of these boys a safe place to get back to health are asked to please contact the Dog House Director, Arlene at 250-809-8225 or email her at [email protected]

“One last good deed for an animal in need 2022."
