Posted by on 4:36 am in News n Updates | Comments Off on $3150 donated to BPR in 2015!

Broken Promises Rescue (BPR) is a volunteer-run, non-profit animal rescue organization in Victoria, B.C.  They are a group of experienced rescuers who have united to improve the lives of unwanted, neglected, and orphaned animals on Vancouver Island and, when resources permit, in remote communities and elsewhere in B.C. BPR tries to help the many pets in the shelter system considered less adoptable because of medical or behavioral problems or simply because their colors, age, or breeds are currently unpopular.  BPR believes that all animals deserve a life without pain, hunger, or loneliness. BPR wants them to know they are loved and cherished despite appearance, age, or medical condition. BPR is also dedicated to raising awareness of animal suffering and to educating children and adults about the responsibilities of animal ownership.  BPR hopes to influence public opinion and mold a more compassionate future.  No animal should suffer through ignorance and indifference. In Fall 2015, BPR was swamped with multiple litters of rescue puppies (and their moms) A litter of Rottweiler puppies 2 related litters of Shepherd mixes A litter of starving Pit Bull puppies A Pittie mom who needed emergency c-section. 3 puppies survived We are are pleased to announce that BPR was the recipient of a Neüterhead grant for $3150 to help cover all the puppies’ spays and neuters!   To find out more about Broken Promises Rescue and the wonderful work they do, please visit their...

$2000 donated to VOKRA in 2015!

Posted by on 4:24 pm in News n Updates, Uncategorized | Comments Off on $2000 donated to VOKRA in 2015!

Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association (VOKRA) is a no-kill, non-profit, registered charity dedicated to the rescue of cats in the Lower Mainland. VOKRA does not have a shelter, instead they rely on a large network of individual foster homes throughout the Lower Mainland. In a home environment, our cats are safe and well socialized, with lots of love and attention. VOKRA covers all of the costs and provides ongoing support to foster families. VOKRA was formed in 2000, with the plan of caring for very young, mainly bottle-feeding kittens. This age rarely survived if found without a mother cat, because very few people know how or are able to provide the round-the-clock feeding and necessary care. VOKRA soon found that older kittens, under the age at which they could safely be vaccinated, also would do much better in a foster home. Mother cats, both tame and feral, joined the list. Another crucial part of VOKRA’s work is their trap/neuter/return program (TNR) – Volunteers humanely trap feral cats and kittens. Pregnant feral mothers are cared for through birthing and until their kittens are weaned, at which time the mother gets spayed and the kittens get socialized so that they can be adopted. If the mother cannot be tamed, she is returned to her original location where volunteers ensure food and water are available daily, and the cat’s health can be monitored. VOKRA also neuters feral male cats, and either adopt them out or return them as appropriate, with the same care arrangements. VOKRA takes in 1800-1900 cats each year. VOKRA has become a well-known and respected organization in the animal rescue and welfare community. VOKRA does all of this entirely with dedicated volunteer workers, private donations, and bequests.   We’re thrilled to announce that we have awarded VOKRA a grant of $2000 towards their spay/neuter costs!   To find out more about VOKRA and the wonderful work they do, please check out their...

$3,000 Donated to Hugabull in 2014

Posted by on 4:17 am in News n Updates | Comments Off on $3,000 Donated to Hugabull in 2014

HugABull Advocacy and Rescue Society is a non-profit organization of pit bull owners and enthusiasts, serving the entire province of BC, and specifically the Metro Vancouver area and Vancouver Island. They are committed to rescuing dogs from the shelter system, and increasing awareness about and demystifying this wonderful but misunderstood breed. HugABull also organizes local events for pit bulls and their families, providing spaces both locally and online for owners to connect and share resources. Since 2003, HugABull has grown into a community of owners and advocates, and a network of foster homes and adopters, all working to give these athletic and intelligent dogs the best opportunities, in spite of widespread stigma and mistreatment. Beginning in 2004, HugABull has partnered with shelters across the province to find these dogs loving forever homes. Sadly, there is a disproportionate number of pit bulls in shelters, where they experience the lowest and slowest adoption rates, due largely to the stigma perpetuated by irresponsible ownership, sensationalist media reports, and reckless breeding. In addition to facilitating fostering and adoption, HugABull is enthusiastic about providing owners and families with the resources required to build and maintain healthy and loving relationships with their canines.  Initiatives include subsidizing veterinary care, providing safety education for children, trainer consultations, workshops, food, supplies and more – all at no cost. We’re thrilled to announce that we have awarded HugABull a grant of $3000 toward their FixABull program! It is dedicated to providing spay and neuter surgeries to dogs whose owners may not otherwise be able to access these veterinary services. HugABull partners with local veterinarians who offer discounted rates to owners looking to fix their dogs, but who may find the procedures cost-prohibitive otherwise. Of course, FixABull’s primary focus is pit bull breeds, who are “most likely to be bred in large numbers, abandoned, or mistreated,” though owners of all dog breeds are welcome to apply for the subsidy. HugABull recognizes that all dogs deserve the opportunity to live happy and healthy lives, and that spaying and neutering is a huge step in that direction.  We’re proud of the great work that HugABull is doing to make that happen for less-fortunate dogs, ensuring them an increased quality of life, and preventing even more lovable pups from lonely shelter or street life – a fate all too common for pit...
