Founded in 1922, the Calgary Humane Society shelters thousands of homeless animals each year. Not only do they house cats and dogs, but the Human Society also rescues small mammals like hamsters and rabbits, birds like parakeets and pigeons, and even reptiles like lizards and snakes.

Little Mutts Rescue is new in town! We are located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and have just started our rescue this year aimed at saving small breed dogs specifically 25lbs or under. Even though we would love to save dogs of all sized and breeds, the rescue was formally started up to meet the adoption demand in Calgary and area of smaller breed dogs so as to provide dog adopters an alternative from having to go to a pet store, backyard breeder or puppy mill. We mainly deal with high kill shelters in the USA as there are so many small breed dogs in these shelters that have to be put to sleep everyday. We don’t feel that a dogs’ location should discriminate whether it should be saved, when there are so many homes available here to take them in.The most common canine parasites were Giardia (8.1% positive samples) and ascarids (4.2% positive samples). The prevalence of hookworm was low (0.81%), no cases of whipworm infection were detected, and low coccidian oocyst prevalence was found. These results are similar to those from the United States, Australia, and the United Kingdom (,,,) in which ascarids were common, but the prevalence of both hookworms and whipworms was lower in the present study than in several others (5,6,8,). Similar results were found in a small study from Colorado, a geographic locale with environmental similarities to the Calgary area (). However, a higher prevalence of Uncinaria was found (30%) in a study of adult dogs in northern Canada ().Founded in 1922, the Calgary Humane Society shelters thousands of homeless animals each year. Not only do they house cats and dogs, but the Human Society also rescues small mammals like hamsters and rabbits, birds like parakeets and pigeons, and even reptiles like lizards and snakes.Toxocara canis is of special concern to both veterinarians and medical doctors due to its zoonotic potential (). We found an overall prevalence of T. canis of 2.9% in dogs. This result is higher than the 1.2% prevalence in Australia () and lower than the 5.0% prevalence in the United States (). The prevalence of T. canis infection in Calgary is significant given that canine infection with this parasite can lead to marked environmental contamination (). Toxocara canis infection was much higher in shelter-sourced animals of all ages (9% in all ages; 19% in ) and Palmer et al (), which showed that infection rates in homed animals were less than those of pets from shelters. The present study may have underestimated the true prevalence of T. canis in the homed-pet population, as more than half of the dogs evaluated were older than 2 y of age. Overall, consideration of parasite prevalence for each age group may be more useful for the practicing veterinarian.
