TimminsToday, in partnership with the Timmins and District Humane Society and the Northern Ontario Animal Welfare Society, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.
Hi, I’m Ricky, and I would love for us to be friends! I’ve been told by folks at the Timmins & District Humane Society that I’m such a special and unique boy – one of the reasons being that I’m part Dalmatian, which, I’m told, is a rare breed around this neck of the woods.
Did you also know that I’m a trained therapy dog? I listen very well. I get along with other dogs and cats, and I would fit in well in a home with older children. I might be an older gentleman at seven years of age, but I still have plenty of energy, an adventurous spirit, and a ton of love to give.
This is actually my second time at TDHS, so I’m no stranger to this place. This time, I’m on a search for a new forever home since my loving mom (a TDHS volunteer) recently passed away after a fight with cancer. I miss her so much, but I remain optimistic because I just know that there are even more great adventures that lie ahead of me.
If you’re looking for a dignified, handsome guy to add to your family, I really hope that you will stop by TDHS to meet me!
All TDHS dog and cat adoptions include the animal’s spay or neuter surgery, vaccines, deworming treatment, a sample bag of Science Diet kibble, coupons, and six pre-paid weeks of pet insurance through Pet Secure.
We also facilitate small animal adoptions (e.g. ferrets, bunnies, guinea pigs, rats, hamsters, etc); please contact us to inquire about the adoption process for those little ones.
