Featured Rescue - Samwise the Beagle

It's been a while since I posted a Beagle as the featured rescue so when I ran across this guy's description, I thought that I must have been holding out for a guy like him!

Samwise is at the Guelph Humane Society along with at least four other Beagles. He came in as a stray so the shelter has no history on the little guy. He is reportedly loving and gentle but, unfortunately like so many other Beagles out there, a runner. Samwise will need an active home to keep him fit and well exercised.

Do you know of low cost spay and neuter clinics in the Guelph area? My coworker has 2 intact male cats, 1 intact female cat, and 1 intact female dog. She won't get them fixed because its too expensive, and besides, the male cats are outdoor cats, so she doesn't need to neuter them! Yeah, they'll make more little cats, but that's not her problem! *shakes head* Anyways, she said she would do it if it weren't so expensive.

P.S. Samwise is now listed as adopted on the Guelph Humane Society website!

Hey Pishkeen...

Go Samwise! That was fast!!

I did some calling around to Guelph area and found that there is not a cheap clinic in your area.

The closest spay/neuter clinic to Guelph that I know of in Ontario would be the one in Newmarket. I "Googled" it and it looks to be around 1.5 hours. Perhaps you both know someone who works in Toronto or who would drive them in? Well worth it if your friend could get all four animals in for spay/neuter in the same day!! The waiting list is long so call ahead. (By long, I mean 6+ weeks).
