Animatch’s Available Furry Friends – February 2021

Are you interested in dog adoption through a reputable service? Animatch, a local non-profit, 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.


Jersey's world was turned upside down when she was given up because of an illness in the family. She was very nervous and started exhibiting unacceptable behavior. She has now spent some time at École de Formation des Intervenants Canins du Québec, and has come a long way. Training has provided a great boost to her confidence. But it doesn't end here. Australian Shepherds are smart and energetic and need to be busy. Running, hiking, agility, fly ball, herding, she's up for all of it. Training must be a part of her daily routine. Jersey's alright with other dogs, as long as they eventually go home. She must be your only pet. No cats either. She is looking for someone who will be as loyal and true-blue to her as she will be to you.


Glacier is the Houdini of the canine world. On the day that she was to leave for Animatch with her seven pups, she escaped from her travel crate. She was recaptured and made the trip four days later, after another unsuccessful bid for freedom. She isn't used to being confined, either in a crate or a room, and becomes very stressed. She has already demolished part of a wall and molding at the Centre. At some point, she may need medication for her anxiety. Despite all this, Glacier loves people. Outside on her own, she attempts to jump the fence. If accompanied by a human, she never leaves their side. Our Vet discovered an old fracture in one of her hind legs, and it is still a little crooked. This sweet, affectionate girl is looking for a family that can meet her needs: Someone is home for a good part of the day; the property is safe and secure; you love the outdoors. She gets along with other dogs, but not with cats. If this sounds like your family, fill out the form and ask for Glacier. You won't find a more loyal friend.
