Fipper 2002-2015


It is with profound sadness and heartbreak that we announce the passing of our true rescue dog "Fipper" on March 16, 2015, at the age of 13 years, after a brief battle with cancer.

She came to D'Arcy's A.R.C.'s shelter in August 2007. At the time, she was treated for second and third degree burns to over 90% of her face as well as malnutrition, neglect and sunburn. Throughout her three months of burn therapy, she wagged her tail and smiled at us everyday as if to say "thank you for the second chance". The A.R.C. staff quickly fell in love and the decision to have her as our shelter companion and mascot was the best decision that we ever made.

Fipper had become a great ambassador for our shelter and our mission to save homeless animals. She visited countless schools promoting both animal awareness and how to help out at the shelter.  She sold thousands of calendars with her picture and story, had photo shoots with the Blue Bombers, has her own water bottle label and has been touched by some of famous Hollywood movie stars.

Fipper was great everyone who came into the shelter.  She enjoyed being patted and scratched behind her ears. Although she would challenge us with eating the best dog foods available, pizza was her favourite food. Those of you who knew her, her quirkiness and her many stubborn Shepherd traits, understood what a special dog indeed she was.
Fipper, everyone at the ARC family wants to thank you for touching our hearts, making us smile and keeping us in tune with what it means to rescue stray animals.

Your footprints will always be welcomed and you will be missed.
