There are hundreds of animals hoping to find loving homes in Beijing. If you are considering adopting a pet, Doggy/Moggy of the Week will feature animals from volunteer shelters, animal rescue groups, foster care providers, and pet owners needing to rehome animals. This week’s doggy, Lila, is from ICVS’ Adoptable Pets.
Names: Good morning Beijing, my name is Lila.
Background: I was found hiding near a busy intersection the other day and was likely abandoned. I was taken in by my very kind rescuer mom, Tai. My rescuer mom brought me home and is taking care of me until she leaves Beijing in a week. She is hoping to help me find a foster or forever adoption home in Beijing.
Personality: I like cuddling, do not bark, and am house trained (so far). I am very sweet and playful. I might be a little shy around new people but I warm up quickly and am very loving. I am hoping for a wonderful family that will give me lots of love and attention as I grow up.
Ideal home: I am fine with an individual owner or with a family with children (e.g., 10-years and older). I am playful and happy and active. I am a young puppy so my new family should be able to spend a lot of time with me at home.
Breed: Small mixed breed dog
Dog registration and Licensing: As an adult, I may be about 35 cms from the ground to the shoulder. I should be able to be legally registered in most districts throughout Beijing.
Sex & Age: I am a two-month old female puppy.
Medical notes: I have not yet started my vaccinations yet as I was just rescued. After a week, I can start my vaccinations. When I have completed all my puppy vaccinations, I can be neutered by my doctors at ICVS.
Post-adoption care: The International Center for Veterinary Services (ICVS) will enroll me and my adoption family into their Rescued/Stray/Rehomed Pet Adoption Benefits Program. ICVS will provide my new family with significant discounts (up to 50%) on my health examinations, vaccinations and neuter/spay surgery!
Official Vaccination Certificate:
With my rabies vaccination, ICVS will issue my new family an official Beijing Animal Health and Immunity Certificate (e.g., vaccination red book) at no charge! I need this official vaccination red book to prove I have been legally and properly rabies vaccinated and to renew registration for my dog license. I must have this official vaccination red book in order to move to another city or to leave China with my family.
Official Spay/Neuter Certificate for Dogs:
After my spay surgery by my doctors at ICVS, the hospital will issue my new family an official Spay/Neuter Certificate that will provide my owners with a 50% discount (e.g., up to RMB 500.00 savings) on my dog license registration fee at the Public Security Bureau.
Puppy Obedience Training Programs at ICVS:
ICVS has introduced new puppy and adult dog obedience training programs. The puppy training classes will help me and my family live a more harmonious life together! All profits from the puppy and adult dog training programs will be donated to the ICVS Non-Profit Humane Animal Welfare Programs! Please contact ICVS for more information about canine obedience training.
