Meet Randy (92) *bonded To Ricky
Meet Randy! This guy was one of the 123 animals living in filthy and unsafe conditions, rescued by the BC SPCA cruelty department. You can read about this case here: https://spca.bc.ca/news/bc-spca-seizes-123-neglected-animals-from-trailer-in-fort-st-james/
Randy has received veterinary care and treatments that are making him feel so much better now. He uses his litter box every time and is a very quiet guy. Since he was living in such bad conditions with minimal human contact, Randy can be shy and suspicious of humans in his space. When Randy first came in to the shelter he was very shy and nervous and he would spend most of his time hiding in his box. He has since been moved to a room with his friend Ricky and has started to come out of his shell. He likes to explore his room and sit on his shelf and look out the window to people watch. Randy will need a quiet family with lots of patience to help him learn how to trust people. Ricky is bonded to his best friend Randy and they are looking to go to a home together.
