Sizeable Suzie

With a supportive environment and loving care, the impact we can make on our animals’ lives is huge.

When Suzie was found as a stray and brought into the BC SPCA Cowichan Community Animal Centre in July 2023, she clearly needed a helping hand to get back on track. She deserved guardians who would be committed to her weight loss and encourage her to live her best life.

Luckily for Suzie, Beth and Bobby came across her profile on the BC SPCA adoption website. Once they met her, there was no going back. Suzie’s sweet nature and calming presence won them over.

It has now been a few months since Beth and Bobby adopted Suzie. They have written to us with an update to share:

“We adopted Sizeable Suzie after being charmed by her profile on the BC SPCA website.

Upon meeting her, she seemed timid and was slow, weighing in at 19 pounds. We could tell the old gal had a sweet soul when she crept out of her cave for pets and attention.

When Suzie first arrived in her new home, she spent lots of time hiding under the couch and bed. We were surprised to learn she loved playing with string, despite being too big to chase it. In fact, she was so sizeable that she could barely walk through the apartment.

After lots of play and pets, Suzie is now very happy in our home. She loves to cuddle in bed (she uses her stairs to get up), and she even jumps on the couch for lap naps!

Suzie loves brushes, pets, scratching her post, hunting string and rolling her kibble ball. This senior is down about three pounds already and seems more energetic than ever.

We love Suzie.”

Thank you, Beth and Bobby, for adopting Suzie and for committing to her weight loss journey. The fact that she is already down three pounds after just a few months is a testament to how she is already starting to flourish in her new home with you.

We are thrilled to hear how Suzie is getting the second chance she truly deserves. We wish you many happy moments together as she settles into her golden years with you by her side.
