PSA from TDIAO – NEVER leave your dog unattended!

A public service announcement from Thank Dog I Am Out founder Susan Patterson warning dog owners not to leave their dog unattended at any time. Dog thefts have been on the rise in the Vancouver area, and are only getting worse. Dogs are being stolen and re-sold, kept as companions and or shipped out of province to be re-sold as a rescue. Keep your dog safe – NEVER leave them unattended.

Feature Dog of the Week:

Meet Nessie

Dumped at a full high intake shelter in CA with hair so matted she could not walk, this blind and deaf senior gal had run out of time. Thank DOG I Am Out saved Nessie (meaning miracle in Hebrew) just in time and got her a much needed hair cut. Huge thank you to @apurposefulresue debbie bloom feldstein for bringing her to our attention and without hesitation the whole team said “yes”. Please stay tuned for more information and of course – she will be available to adopt to a FANTASTIC BC family. If you think you could be that perfect family for this sweet 10 year old girl, fill out an application by clicking HERE.


What a difference a week makes!

Please think of others when thinking about lighting off fireworks of any kind. Dogs have very sensitive hearing and are very afraid of fireworks.
