We're back for another wonderful week here at the rescue, my apologies for being a little late this week. We would like to wish everyone a belated merry Christmas, and we hope you all have a fantastic new year!
I would like to start off by thanking the Santa Paws Drive for everything, this has defiantly been, hands down the best Christmas for our animals! They were so happy with all their toys and treats, and not to mention the $700 donated to the rescue, Thank you! To see pictures, video's and for more information on the Santa Paws Drive:http://elevenelevenanimalrescue.blogspot.com/2009/12/christmas-at-rescueom.html
We have a new arrival this week to the Rescue:
Alice: A wonderful little girl, she was dropped off to be euthanized two days before Christmas (can you believe it?), just because she had fleas. Well, not anymore Alice is free of fleas and ready for her new forever home. For more info or to adopt this little cutie see the web site:http://elevenelevenanimalrescue.blogspot.com/2009/12/new-arrival-alice.html
We also are in need of even more foster homes, the SPCA is overflowing, the tally as of now is: 28 Rabbits, 13 Hamsters, 1 ferret, 1 dove, 2 buggies, 6 rats and a lot of guinea pigs. there is also two Giant Schnauzers that need a foster home by this weekend, If you would like to open your home to anyone of these animals you can fill out a foster application, it would mean the world to these little angels.
Now check it out, we have an upcoming show in couple of weeks, it's going to knock your socks off! For more information or to buy tickets:
Or to confirm on facebook:
We're also always looking for donations. To donate or volunteer see our website:
We are also in desperate need of material donations as well: Dog and cat bowls, carriers, food, collars, ect... It'll make the a difference to an animal who needs it. For the full list:http://elevenelevenanimalrescue.org/Wishlist.html
Thats all for this week.
Much love from everyone here at eleven eleven!
Rain or shine (or 30 below), this young man can usually be found panhandling outside the corner of Sherbrooke and Hingston.
Justin is friendly with many locals, who give him change, or bring him hot coffee on cold days. They are also familiar with Justin's two beloved dogs, Rocco and Molar, who are always by his side.
But lately residents have noticed that one of his dogs, Rocco, has been absent. Rocco recently suffered a leg injury, and Justin is desperately trying to raise money for an operation. He was playing ball and took a bad fall. He tore his ACL ligament and hurt two others - needs expensive specialized surgery to recuperate. Operation and recovery will cost about $3000. Justin has gotten off the streets and is in his own apartment, but doesn't have the money for Rocco's operation.

Update 28th December 2009: Noahs feeding tube has been removed and he is now eating all by himself!
Update 20th December 2009: Noahs jaw fixture was finally removed! He is now starting to eat small bits of food and will be able to have his feeding tube removed soon.
Update 6th November 2009: Noah has recovered from the surgery and is now walking around, playing, exploring. However another complication has come up and it has been discovered that he has zero tear production. This could be cause by head trauma and a result of nerve damage, it may or may not be permanent. For now he needs eye lubrication at least 3 times a day. The eye ointment is expensive, and adding up when he needs it so often.
Update 2nd November 2009: Noah is now slowly starting to walk. He has been unable to until this point, it is still not sure if this is due to the head injuries or not. He continues to be fed through the feeding tube, and will not be able to eat on his own until the fixture is removed. The re-evaluation is in one month, at that point they will determine if they will have to go back into surgery or not. However they believe they will most likely have to. Therefore Noah will need constant feedings throughout the day for at least one month, if not two. For now his incision is healing well and everything is going smoothly.
Update 30th October 2009:Noah went into his first surgery with Doctor Warrak, and Interns Dr. Grenier and Dre. Bond. As explain by Dr. Warrak, “A cerclage was put to immobilize the fracture at the intermandibular symphysis. An external fixator was put to reduce the mid-mandibular fracture. It was impossible to put a cerclage because there were some mandibular fragments, and all the plates were too big for the mandible. There was a lot of fibrous tissues, indicating that the fracture was old, at least two weeks. Due to his very small size at 5 pounds, it was tricky. They had to adjust their instruments, pins and wires accordingly. The surgeons were amazed by the extent of the injuries, which means a lot when these are specialist and see this every day. The surgery nonetheless went well and Noah recovered in the ICU that night.
Update 29th October 2009: The CT scan revealed extensive jaw injuries, more than expected; Oblique mid-mandibular fracture to the right, with a fracture at inter-mandibular symphysis. Polytrauma to the head, with multiple fractures at the temporo-mandibular articulation, skull, zygomatic arch, frontal sinus, ethmoid, and nasal septum. The surgeon Dr. Warrak, explained that it was caused by “severe head trauma” comparable to being hit by a car. However Noah was stickly kept indoors in an appartment with no acess to escape. Noah will need at least two surgeries each costing 1200$. This does not include the pre-operative and post-operative intensive care needed.

We've decided to keep you lovely members posted with weekly emails. My name's Jess I will be doing this weekly mailing list. I'm super new at this so please cut me some slack and let me know if I've done something wrong.
We have some new arrivals this week:
Minoush: a 5 year old cat who was going to be euthanized because her owners didn't want her anymore.
Porscha: this beautiful miniature pinscher was a former puppy mill breeder.
Three feral kittens from one of many feral cat populations. This has been a growing problem for many years now so like Bob Barker says "don't forget to spay and neuter your pets".
For more information on our feral cat population project
Bongo: a 1 year old male boxer mix has just joined us, He was picked up by animal control, un-neutered, no i.d and to be euthanized. He is now safe and sound at the rescue.

Breed: Boxer cross
Bongo was picked up by animal control, with no identification, un-neutered and dropped off at a clinic to be euthanized. He was such a sweet heart the clinic did not want to euthanize and seeked help. Bongo is one big happy go lucky dog, life is a peice of cake to him. Regardless of how bad it has started. He is un-fazed by everything, his spirit is strong and inspiring.
