I am delighted to announce that the Qerl Purser Hound Rescue and Sanctuary has reached its first birthday! Won’t you come visit?
A bit of background on the Sanctuary (don’t worry, I will be brief and then show you cute pictures):
It was brought to my attention some time ago that there was a crisis in slaver hound breeding, specifically miniature slaver hounds bred by unscrupulous persons for the pet market without taking into account the health of the poor little things, or the environment they would be living in. Everyone has probably seen at least one miniature slaver that could not keep its tongue in, or that had lost its mane entirely from incessant licking or scratching, or one that shook constantly–and I am sure I don’t need to explain the stress of keeping one cooped up in a little urban apartment, no matter how nice it is.
All too often these little hounds become troublesome for their owners through no fault of their own, and they are euthanized or simply abandoned. The life of an abandoned purser hound, used to canned kibble and cushions, is not a pretty one. I will let you imagine the dangers they face, and the damage they do to native wildlife! It’s awful, all of it.
My heart broke. And I knew I had to help. Now they have a home.
The Sanctuary is built to offer our rescues the familiarity and comfort of a modern, urban interior while also allowing them free movement and plenty of arboreal cover to perch in. The grounds are securely fenced to protect the hounds and the surrounding wildlife.
Not all of them are interested in perching in trees, though. A lot of our rescues have already had a hard life, and are just as happy to enjoy a nap in the sun.
We accept surrenders, take in trapped ferals from nearby systems, and provide the best medical care and training to our pursers for their whole lives. While we do offer adoptions in specific instances, a purser that leaves the Sanctuary can return any time, for any reason, for as long as necessary.
COME VISIT US! We will have snacks and drinks, AND PUPPIES! The pool will NOT be open.
