The Regina Humane Society – Half a Century of Saving Lives

Published on August 28, 2014 by in Blog

For fifty years the Regina Humane Society (RHS) has made a difference for animals, one-by-one.  The RHS was incorporated in 1964 as a non-profit organization. The current shelter is located on Armour Road, off Highway #6 on the northern edge of the city. It has space for over 300 animals, a voluntary Board of Directors, 46 staff and over 800 active volunteers. The RHS has, throughout the years, worked to improve the welfare of animals through programs and services in sheltering, education, protection and advocacy.  Without community support to improve the well-being of animals, the RHS could not conintue to provide valuable services, including caring for homeless and neglected cats, dogs and other domestic animals; reuniting lost animals with their owners; investigating complaints of animal cruelty and neglect and providing a 24 hour emergency service 365 days of the year.

A quick read of the RHS newsletter will give you an idea of the tireless work being done for the animals.   The successes and happy stories are a testament to the dedication and hard work of the staff and volunteers of the RHS.  In 2013, with an increase of 35% in returns for cats to their families and over 2000 spay / neuter surgeries, the numbers speak for themselves.  Subscribe to the newsletter and email alerts today by clicking here.

Animal Haven Rescue League in Stettler, Alberta

Published on May 7, 2014 by in Blog

Millions of us share our lives with companion animals.  Half the households in North America and Europe share their homes with at least one dog or cat.  Almost everyone has fond memories of a family pet.  For most people, these animals are not just companions, they’re friends and family.  We love them.

But every day tens of thousands are abandoned, become lost, or are stolen. When they fall into the hands of cruel people, these animals can suffer terribly.  These animals have very little legal protections, so we must be vigilant when they are in our care.

IzzyAnimal Alliance / Saving Dinah is thankful for the many rescue groups in Canada, providing a safety net for humans and their non-human companions.

Take for example the Animal Haven Rescue League in Stettler, Alberta.  This wonderful group is dedicated to finding loving homes for pets in need as well as educating the public on responsible pet ownership.

Izzy is just one such pet looking for a family to love her.   She’s a little snuggle bug, and she’s great with kids, dogs and other cats – what a catch!

There are many animals waiting for help from Animal Haven but without foster homes and the necessary funds to care for these animals properly, they must continue to wait.

So how can you help these animals and Animal Haven?  Become a foster parent, attend a meeting, or make a donation – it’s that easy.

And don’t forget to connect with them on Facebook today!

Alberta’s Animal Rescue Foundation – active and awesome!

Published on April 30, 2014 by in Blog

The Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF) of Alberta is a rescue organization helping dogs and cats in Alberta.

Founded in 1995, ARF is a volunteer-based organization and registered non-profit charity. Their mission is to rescue stray and unwanted dogs and cats from First Nations and rural areas and place them in loving, permanent homes while providing programs to reduce pet over-population.

ARF has volunteer opportunities available and it’s no wonder looking at their events calendar – what a busy group!  There’s the MEC Gear Swap May 4th, the Lilac Festival May 25th, and a golf tournament June 26th.

Or, if you prefer hands-on work, become a foster home for animals like Missy!  Like most other groups, ARF is always seeking foster homes to give the animals in their care a good start for the next leg of their journey.  Fostering is a truly rewarding experience and a great option if your schedule does not permit you to commit to an animal permanently.

For more information about how you can become a part of this awesome group of people, call 403.243.1910 or email ARF today.

From all of us at Animal Alliance (thousands of kilometers away) THANK YOU to everyone at ARF, for making a difference in this world, one animal at a time.
