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 dog, Rascal, is from ICVS’ Adoptable Pets.
Introduction: Hi everyone! my name is Rascal.
Background: I was rescued by a very kind man from a dog meat slaughterhouse. I was no longer wanted by the vendors that were trying to sell me as a pet so they sold me to the slaughterhouse for salvage value. I was rescued and taken to ICVS, where I was diagnosed with Parvovirus. I was treated and cared for and nursed back to health. I am a survivor of the dog meat trade and am very happy and lucky to have survived. I am hoping for a new start in life with a new family that will love me forever.
Personality: Despite all I have been through, my nature and personality is very gentle, sweet and friendly. I adore people and am hoping for a forever home this holiday season.
Ideal home: Rascal would be happiest with an individual, a couple or a family with older children (e.g., 8 years and older). Rascal must be a family member for life so taking him overseas when relocating is essential.
Breed: Rascal is a short haired, small Beagle mixed dog.
Sex and age: Rascal is a still a young dog, about 8-9 months dog.
Medical notes: Rascal is now very healthy and lively and has already been dewormed, is heartworm negative and has been treated for fleas and ticks, stool checked, vaccinated and microchipped.
Post-adoption care: The International Center for Veterinary Services (ICVS) has enrolled me 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 and vaccinations and neuter surgery during my first year of life with my new family.
Official Vaccination Certificate: With my rabies vaccination, ICVS will issue my new family the official Beijing Animal Health and Immunity Certificate (e.g., vaccination red book) at no charge! I need the official vaccination red book to prove I have been legally and properly rabies vaccinated to move to another city or to leave China with my family.
Official Spay/Neuter Certificate for Dogs: After my neuter surgery, ICVS 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 savings) on my dog license registration fee at the Public Security Bureau.
Puppy and Adult Dog Obedience Training Programs at ICVS: ICVS has introduced new puppy and adult dog obedience training programs. The dog 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.
ICVS Non-Profit Humane Animal Welfare Programs: Please support and donate to the ICVS Non-Profit Humane Animal Welfare Programs.
