Got a question?
How are you funded?
We are 100% volunteer run, and we function fully on donations by kind animal lovers who want to support what we do. We spend hundreds of hours applying for private funding, and we conduct many kinds of fundraisers. Donations are always welcome, and all funds raised go towards animal care.
Where does my donation go?
Every cent goes toward care of the animals. This may mean that your donation pays veterinary fees to get a cat healthy, or it may pay for a bag of food for the dogs. If you would like to donate to a specific use, please let us know!
Are You a "No-Kill Shelter"?
We are not a "shelter", we are a home-based rescue. This means that rescued animals live in our home with us, and are only crated when necessary for safety or comfort.
We are "no-kill". We do not euthanize for space or behaviours. The only situation in which we would euthanize an animal is if that animal is experiencing untreatable pain and suffering. We highly value the life of every animal we help.
Can you take wildlife?
The short answer is no.
The long answer is that we are working on becoming a registered wildlife rescue through the Ministry of Natural Resources. We understand that this is a need in our community and we are working to be able to fill this need.
How do you choose an animal's adoption fee?
A lot goes into deciding on the best fee to charge for an animal's adoption. Some of the factors include: animal's age, vet care needed, local economy, behavioural issues, and more. We are always transparent about every animal we adopt out, so feel free to ask any questions.
What does it mean that you're a Charity? Why not Non-Profit?
We put a lot of thought into the decision to apply for charity status. It's not right for every rescue, but in our community and considering our future plans, it was the right step for us. Being a charity means that we can provide tax receipts for all product and financial donations we receive. We can also apply for funding from private sources that is only available to charities.
