We’re sharing the recipients’ stories here on our Shelter Blog. Here’s how a this grant will change the life of a pet or pets in their care:
Rescue For Life Foundation
Spruce Grove, Alberta
Rescue for Life - a registered Alberta non-profit - is a small animal no-kill rescue group operated out of Spruce Grove, Alberta and adopts to all over Western Canada! We have branches our of Edmonton, Alberta and Vancouver, British Columbia!
Cats and dogs are fostered by volunteers until their forever homes are found. While in foster care the animals receive full vet care. All animals adopted out by Rescue for Life are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and dewormed.
As a rescue group we can not take in all animals in need but we do take pride in the fact that an animal will not be rejected based on where it comes from or the extent of it’s injuries or illnesses. Every animal is invested into with as much money and love that he/she requires to hopefully bring it back to apoint at which it can be adopted out to his/her forever home. We are a group that takes pride in the quality of care provided and the quality of adoption homes found. We are not a quantity driven organization.
All foster and adoption homes are screened by Rescue for Life and the best match for both the animal(s) and the family is chosen. An adoption fee covers a portion of the money put into the animals. Rescue for Life also has “Special Needs Cases” that require additional funds above and beyond a standard rescue.
Adopting is the first step to having an animal become part of your family. To enable bonding we offer a lifelong commitment of working with the new addition and the family to ensure everyone adjusts. With our dog adoptions we offer a basic obedience course to get families started off on the right path!
Rescue for Life is involved in educating the general public about responsible pet ownership including the importance of spaying/neutering your pet(s). Rescue for Life relies solely on volunteers and donations. Alberta non-profit 5015643017
