At a visit to a local Flea Market the other day, I was lucky enough to meet up with some of the utterly fabulous people from Animal Ambulance. At their stall, they had with them one of their long term resident dogs – Bubbles.
Oh my, what a cutie-pie Bubbles is. I would have taken her that minute if I had space for another animal. She has been there for about a year now, still awaiting a suitable “forever” home. She is just the sweetest, gentlest character you could possibly imagine and I fell instantly in love with her. I’m such a complete softy!
I shall be doing a visit to Animal Ambulance as soon as possible and simply cannot wait for the opportunity. They are based in Pretoria, South Africa and rescue abused and sick animals. They are a Pro-Life organisation and treat all the animals as part of their family. Animals are not left outside or in cages/kennels. The animals get to experience a true “home” feeling, roaming the property and sleeping indoors (well, maybe not the donkeys but certainly the cats and dogs).
Animal Ambulance is a 24 hour emergency centre for the abused, sick and, whenever possible, those animals on death row at other shelters. The people I met are warm and friendly and clearly adore animals. Their very first response to me was “come through and visit us, you’ll love it and immediately know what we are all about”. Any organisation that keen to have you visit is clearly doing a great job.
As with all Pro-Life Shelters, the more animals they can adopt out, the more they can take in and help. Anybody looking for a real little cuddle-bunny should seriously consider Bubbles, or visit Animal Ambulance to choose from hundreds more.

She does look cute. If only they could all get good homes.
If only indeed! All we can do is try and hope. At least she’s in a place where they care for her a great deal and she’s not caged. Certainly better than many other shelters she could have landed up in.
Bubbles!! OMGoodness. What a perfect name for a perfect little girl! I hope this is the PR she needs to find a new family. Good luck!
I know – I fell in love with the name as much as with her. It suits her perfectly. Yes, let’s hope she finds a great home (before I give in and cram yet another pet into this place – where, by the way, I’m not supposed to have any!!)
Bless Animal Ambulance for the good work they do in South Africa and Bubbles would clearly be a fabulous addition to ANY forever home!!
Animal Ambulance really do fantastic work and yes, Bubbles would make just the best cuddly furry friend for anyone looking. I’m still tempted but still can’t fit her in here – so sad.
Oh Bubbles is such a sweetie 🙂 Like you,if I had the room I would have all of them 🙂 xx00xx

I know – it’s so hard to walk away. My Mom was with me and she fell instantly in love. Maybe I can convince her to take Bubbles (although she swears she doesn’t want to be tied down by another dog at her age). Sure I can use the drip process to get her to give in. 😀
Great post! And Bubbles is adorable 🙂
She really is. It’s her personality that does it and, of course, it’s really hard to show that in photographs. I so wish I could scoop her up and bring her home.
Bubbles is darling!
She really is a darling. Pity photographs can’t show what a sweet personality she has.
What a great job they do and Bubbles is so cute. We hope a forever home is found soon. Have a fabulous Friday.
Best wishes Molly
Thanks Molly. I’m sure Bubbles will find a great home soon. She’s so cute and has the sweetest personality out.
Oh, sweet Bubbles you are just the cutest little thing. We love your black ears. We sure hope you get a loving, forever home real soon. Hugs and nose kisses
Isn’t she just a cutie-pie. Problem is that photographs can’t show their personality and that was what really got me with this sweetheart. I’m sure someone will come along that will see the same great qualities I did. I’ll pass on the hugs and nose kisses – thanks.
What a wonderful organization Animal Ambulance is…..bless them. Bubbles is adorable and I can EASILY see why it was hard not to take her home – let’s hope someone ELSE comes along soon and does that though!
Pam (and Sam)
Animal Ambulance are doing a fantastic job! Can’t wait to get out and see the property myself. In the meantime, best someone realise just how sweet and gorgeous Bubbles is, before I give in and try to cram her into this zoo here 🙂
OMD! Bubbles is so adorable!! It is unthinkable that that cutie has been looking for a home for a year! So sweet. I sure hopes a good soul will take her home soon.
Thanks Ruby. It is amazing that she’s been passed over for so long. She’s such a sweet, gentle, loving little thing. I’m sure she’ll find a perfect forever home soon.
Bubbles is adorable, I can’t believe anyone could pass that face and not fall in love. She looks so happy that I hope she has her own home soon:)
She really is adorable. Pity photographs can’t show personalities properly, because she is just so sweet! I’m sure her perfect home is waiting for her somewhere. In the meantime, at least she’s safely in a pro-life shelter, getting love and attention.
Oh, what a sweetie. She’s to far away from here, but I’m sure there’s someone just like her in our shelters’ in the Netherlands’ to be rescued 🙂
I’m sure there are cutie-pies just like her in the Netherlands, looking to get their perfect forever home. Obviously Bubbles is a little far off for you 😀
Bubbles is precious & the ambulance sounds like a great organization.
Thanks Oskar, Bubbles is indeed a precious little thing, with the cutest name. Wish photos could show personality! The Animal Ambulance really are a great organisation.
She is adorable, can’t believe she hasn’t gotten a forever home yet. Hopefully soon.
Amazing how long some animals wait for the perfect home. She really is such a sweet personality, I find it hard to believe she hasn’t been snapped up already. In the meantime, at least she is in a great place, with love and time.
I wish, I wish, I wish…we could have a dog and that I would LIKE a dog..given I am even scared of other cats, not likely we will get a dog. But that Bubbles, so cute! pee Ess did you receive my questions for Lady Litchi?? just checking
Hi Savvy, yes, I know you’d be too scared to get a dog. Jangles, my adult rescue cat here, is not a particularly keen on dogs either. She was terrified of Litchi to begin with but a few years down the line now, she has found a balance with her. Bubbles is such a gentle little thing that she’d probably be great with cats but, then again, without seeing her with one, it’s difficult to tell.
By the way, yes, I did get the questions. Sorry I haven’t answered them yet but promise I will get around to it very soon.
I have nominated you for the 2012 Blog Of The Year Award – Go to my blog to pick up your award and add to your blog. http://donkeywhispererfarm2010.wordpress.com/2012/11/25/blog-of-the-year-award-2012/
I did see it. Thank you so very, very much. I really appreciate it. All the animals say a huge big Thank You and send across a bunch of slobbery kisses 🙂
I hope Bubbles finds a home very soon – it’s so sad that so many beautiful, affectionate dogs still don’t have their forever home – good on you for helping spread the news!
Will always help in whatever way I can. Sad that Bubbles has had to wait so long but I’m sure her perfect forever home awaits her.
They sound like they’re proud of what they do – can’t ask for anything better than that 🙂
Too true. If they are proud of what they are doing, it’s pretty much sure they are doing a great job. Can’t wait to get out there and see for myself.
Sounds like animal ambulance is doing a great job! Weird, how such a cute and friendly dog like Bubbles still has no forever home? 😦
Always amazes me when such sweet, gentle, loving animals end up waiting so long but I’m sure her perfect forever home is out there, waiting for her. Lets hope it’s soon, otherwise the temptation to try to cram her into this zoo of mine is going to get too great 🙂
What an awsome org!
They really are. I can’t wait for the opportunity to get out to see them and do a follow up story after that. Unfortunately, they are not in the same town as me but are relatively close, so I’ll get there soon.
Hey Lady Litchi, Hey Sabre, Hey Boks, Jet here. Hi Miss Susan.
OMD, what an amazing place Animal Ambulance is. We’re crossing paws and fingers Bubbles finds her forever home speedy quick. Thanks for sharing their good work. 🙂
Anyone looking to adopt a dog would be mad not to fall for Bubbles. What a cute name, what a cute personality. She’s the perfect example of a great rescue dog. In the meantime, at least she is in a great place, with love and time.
You know, Bubbles is probably in the right place. As an ambassador for Animal Ambulance attending their public appearances with that cute little face and nature of hers, she probably tugs at many heart strings, and ‘pulls’ at lot more to actually adopt… 🙂
Maybe you are right. Bubbles certainly has a role to play, being the little sweetheart that she is, drawing people into the idea of adopting. At least she is in a loving place, gets to travel around a bit and has as much time as she needs.
Yes, I agree… Probably the best life for a gorgeous dog such as she….
Bubbles is just adorable! With a name like Bubbles how can you go wrong?
Exactly – isn’t it just the cutest name. Think I fell in love with the name as much as the dog 🙂
She has such a sweet personality to go with it as well.
Wow, a whole year and no takers for this sweet little doggy!? I cannot believe it! Her eyes can melt anyone…I do hope for a forever home for Bubbles…SOON!! 🙂
So do I. She is so very sweet. Photos don’t show the personality and that’s what’s really great about her. I’m sure the right home will come along. Just takes a bit of time. At least she has that, being with Animal Ambulance.
How lovely is Bubbles!! I will keep everything crossed that a forever home is found soon!
Thanks Basil! Just don’t keep everything crossed for too long now – you might burst 😀
OOO good point!!
It’s so wonderful all you are doing for the “babies” I’ve awarded you Blog of the Year: http://maryannemistretta.wordpress.com/2012/11/26/blog-of-the-year-award-1-star/
Thank you so very, very, very much. I really appreciate it. My word, what an honour. All the babies say a big Thank You!
Oh Bubbles has captured my heart already! That sounds like a wonderful place – thank heavens for organizations like this!
It really is an amazing place. Bubbles has the sweetest personality ever. So wish I could take her in. The right home will be out there for her, though. It’s just a matter of time.
I hope Bubbles finds a home soon, love those black ears 🙂
Her black ears frame her face beautifully, I must agree 🙂
She is so sweet and loving, I really do hope she finds the perfect home very soon.
What a cutie!!!!!
She really is the sweetest, most loving little thing. Pity pictures don’t show the personality.
I can certainly see why you fell in love with Bubbles. What a beautiful dog.
She really is and I wish that photographs could show her personality better – she is such a sweetie. Her “forever” home best come along quickly, before I’m tempted to go back and fetch her – which I simply cannot do (3 cats and a dog in a place with a “no pet” policy is already pushing my luck a little too far)
She is cute. I am always amazed at the dogs that end up spending a long time at shelters. I would have though she would have been snapped up.
If photos could only show personality better, you’d be even more surprised that she hasn’t yet been snapped up. It is sad when they have to wait this long but at least she gets to stay in a loving place and, sometimes, travel around as an ambassador. Could be worse.
I think that name is just so fun “Bubbles”. What a cutie with the Black ears and white face. I hope she’ll get a beautiful home. Bless the folks who are helping these little souls.
Indeed – bless the folks at Animal Ambulance. I agree, that name is just too cute and suits her personality so well. We are all wishing for her perfect forever home to come along soon.
She is adorable. It would be hard to resist her. It breaks my heart how many pups and cats need homes. How wonderful they all are. I hope she finds her forever home soon.
It can become somewhat overwhelming, the amount of animals in shelters needing homes. Bubbles is such a sweet dog – hard to believe no-one has snapped her up yet. I’m sure with a bit of marketing, she’ll find her forever home soon. I really do hope so.
I love those black ears!
They frame her face rather perfectly, I think.
why is the poor thing still at the shelter? I really hate how people treat animals in this world. I do hope she finds her forever home soon!!
When you meet her and see her personality, it really is amazing that she is still in a shelter. At least she’s in a wonderful one and gets to travel around playing “ambassador” a bit. It could be worse but we are all hoping she finds a perfect forever home soon.
Awww! What a cute dogie!
She really is. Wish she could get a fantastic home for Christmas.
