NALA HAS AN ADOPTION PENDING!

Update: June 30th, 2021. Nala’s current foster home has officially requested to adopt her. She is no longer available for adoption, however, updates on her medical status will be shared here so please feel free to check back.

HOME NEEDED FOR  NALA…
Nala is a beautiful Shepherd/Husky mix just over 4 years old. Nala is spayed, house/crate-trained  and  loves the outdoors. She needs to loose around 10 to 15 lbs.  Nala originally came from the NWT as a young pup but was returned today, 4 years later due to unfortunate circumstances. Sadly, Nala was also returned favouring her rear-right leg and we suspect a previously stretched acl. Surgery may be necessary but we will know more once she looses the extra weight and has been receiving supportive supplements, therapy/care. Cross Our Paws is in desperate need of donations. Since Covid, fundraising has proved extremely difficult.
