Have you got a heart (and a home) for Flash?

Sweet Flash is still waiting for her forever home. A retired sled dog, Flash’s younger years were nothing short of horrendous. She is still young and deserving of the love that will heal her. As a result of mistreatment she is distrustful of people. This has resulted in her living stressed and in fear on almost a daily basis. So because she is highly fearful, she is a big ask for someone to take on. Her journey will not be months, but likely years. That said, she is a sweetie and has shown no aggressive behavior.

Flash doesn’t need a hero to take her on, but someone who will work to make her into a ‘normal’ dog. She needs someone who will allow her to just be. Someone who will give her the time, the space and infinite patience to allow her to move on her journey to a better life. This is a huge ask and not something to take on without truly thinking it through. There are many of us in the Victoria Humane Society Family that have done it so you will not have to do it alone as Flash has an incredible support group that goes with her. These journeys of healing can be hard. It will not be a straight journey, there will be backslides and leaps forward. You will celebrate things such as the tiniest tail wag, eye contact or even a moment of play. Where these dogs end up on the scale of fearful to outgoing is anyone’s guess BUT it will be one of the most rewarding things you can do. If you have a confident easy going dog and think that you would be able to offer Flash the type of environment she will need, please fill out an application and we will contact you to discuss it more.

You are the lifeblood of our work on behalf of animals.

As a non-profit organization, the Victoria Humane Society depends entirely on donations from kind-hearted people like you. Every month, we rescue literally dozens of dogs and cats, and sometimes other small animals, many from horrific circumstances such as neglect, starvation and abuse. The associated costs of rescue are significant, from arranging transportation for the animals out of remote communities and into our care, to emergency medical bills to save animals lives, to spay and neuter costs, vaccinations, hospitalizations, medications and on-going food costs and incidentals. Monthly and one-time donors are literally our most critical form of support. We thank you for donating what you can today.
