Even if you don’t know these animals or their owners, you are helping homeless pets and shelters by sharing their stories. If you spot a stray dog, be a conscientious neighbor by calling animal control and reporting the incident. Better yet, bring the dog to the local shelter yourself, if you are able to get closer or know how to handle stray dogs. Today, in many countries, there is a movement to adopt rescued animals instead of supporting the over breeding and mistreatment of dogs and cats by “puppy mill” breeders.
- The lady went to the store and bought dry cat food but as soon as she tried to feed the kitten, she could see the horrible condition of this animal.
- Depending on the problems that you have observed, you may want to start by meeting with the shelter director to discuss how you might help improve the facility.
- Originally, I started doing presentations in our local community about how helping animals helps people.
- The surgery was almost free and the rest of the raised funds went towards her food and medications.
You can help change that, with a state-of-the-art pet resource center that we’ll build together – a quality-of-life investment for Northwest Arkansas. Please check back or watch our social media channels for details. Recruit volunteers to help before, during and after the event.
My situation is that my new kitten went missing whom I rescued from a ‘free to good home’. We had only had him a short time, the local Heathmont vet transferred him to homeless hounds instead of where they normally send missing cats being coldstream animal aid. We searched and called everywhere being promised that if the cat was found it would have been sent to coldstream.
Microchip Your Pet
Our team is dedicated to serving these small business owners who are passionate about helping their local animals in need. Adoptable aims to provide a place where pet owners, rescue centres and other pet adoption agencies can advertise adoptable pets in need of rehoming, and where visitors can come to find a cat or dog to adopt. Whether you are a private owner who can no longer keep a pet, a rescue centre or other voluntary group or pet welfare agency, you can add your pets to our listings free of charge.
We serve the community by offering rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing all of the animals in our care. I Stand With My Pack is a non-profit organization providing global assistance to save the lives of animals and prevent suffering and cruelty. ISWMP’s domestic efforts focus on the successful removal of dogs from LA city and county high-risk kill shelters, assisting dogs through the rehabilitative process and successfully placing them in their forever homes. Dogs on Deathrow is a non-profit organization which rescues dogs facing imminent execution if they do not get interim financial sponsors or foster parents – or receive medical treatment needed to become adoptable. These are “last chance” dogs in high kill shelters who, with your help, can get their “second chance” and become wonderful family pets.
As well as those that are born to stray cats, there is a large population of feral cats. Feral means a domesticated animal that has reverted to living wild. Feral cats can live in fields, barns, and around farms, but they can also live in urban environments. In total, there are more than 1 million stray and feral felines in the UK. Cats are even more prolific breeders than dogs, and a single unneutered female cat, and her offspring, can result in 370,000 unwanted kittens in just 7 years.
Volunteers are a dedicated “army of compassion” and the backbone of a successful No Kill effort. There is never enough staff, never enough dollars to hire more staff, and always more needs than paid human resources. That is where volunteers come in and make the difference between success and failure and, for the animals, life and death. Many communities are embracing Trap, Neuter, Release programs to improve animal welfare, reduce death rates, and meet obligations to public welfare. Around the world,HSI is a world leader in working to ensure a better future for animals. HSI supports programs in many countries and has offices on every continent.
