GuelphToday, in partnership with the Guelph Humane Society, brings you this feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.
April 9 update: Ginger is still available and her adoption fee is sponsored by Steve and Marlene Truscott so the fee has been waived.
Everyone meet Ginger! Ginger is a sweet but shy senior who takes a while to warm up to people. She is looking for a quiet, mature home for her golden years.
Ginger loves to play with ribbons and toy mice, and loves her food and getting belly rubs (she'll roll over like a dog to get them). She startles easily at loud noises, so unfortunately homes with young children or other pets wouldn't be a good match for her.
Ginger currently has irritable bowel syndrome (IBD), but it is well controlled on a special vet gastrointestinal diet (Royal Canin Vet Diet GI Moderate Calorie and Fibre dry, Rayne Sensitive GI Wet food). Other diets have been tried, but unfortunately she doesn't do well on them.
Stressful situations have also been known to cause a flare up in her IBD.
Ginger is available for viewing at our satellite location at Guelph Animal Hospital. If you have any questions about Ginger, please don't hesitate to contact Guelph Animal Hospital.
She qualifies for the Supreme Senior Discount, so her adoption fee is only $100!
