It’s raining rescues!

January 21, 2019

Thanks to our many partnerships and alliances with animal rescue organizations across Canada and around the world, our Rescue Transport Program has helped rehome thousands of homeless animals around the world.

2019 is already off to a great start! With the help of the Guelph Humane Society and the North Bay Humane Society, we have changed the lives of 75 cats living in Northern Ontario.

Four different rescues groups and animal shelters coordinated the drop off to our friends in North Bay. From there, the North Bay Humane Society made the trip down to us where we and some of our friends at the Guelph Humane were waiting excitedly with open arms. 37 of the cats remained with us, 38 went to Guelph!

Janet Bredin from North Bay Humane Society was thrilled to have taken part in the transfer, remarking that the assistance we’ve provided smaller organizations “can hardly be expressed in words.” And according to Samantha Westphal from Guelph Humane Society, they were thrilled to have been involved, telling us everything went smoothly on their end!

This transfer is a wonderful example of what can be accomplished when we work together, 75 cats whose outcomes were uncertain now have the opportunity to find their forever homes here in Southern Ontario. Stay tuned as many of these little guys will be looking for their forever homes in the coming months!

A huge thank-you goes out to all the staff and volunteers in Guelph, North Bay, and neighboring areas for helping to save these lives.
