Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:
Located in The Dalles Oregon on the Washington border. We serve Klickitat, Sherman, Wasco and Hood River Co. offering a feral spay and neuter program, shelter and adoption when resources allow.
Catlink is a private shelter which evolved in 1998 for placing recently abandoned and young kittens found while running the only feral spay and neuter clinic in the Columbia River Gorge. We strive to maintain a family living situation for all cats and we regularly introduce dogs and young adults to the population to lessen the stress of transitioning into a new environment when they leave us to their forever home. Many times in the spring the demand is so huge that we fill all our foster homes and end up turning far to many back out to colonies with a caregiver, not the family they need and deserve.
We run entirely on volunteers NO PAID wages. NO INTAKE FEES, we help people place pets when we can but work with abandoned and ferals except on rare occasions. YES as far as I know we are the only ones who pick up sick or injured cats. Animal control doesn't, and to our knowledge they stay in the ditch until some kind person takes responsibility or someone contacts us.
Our euthanasia policy is that a cat must be deemed by a licensed veterinarian to be fatally ill or fatally injured.
Tax deductible donations can be made to Rowena Wildlife Clinic marked "for the cats" which graciously orders our medical supplies such as vaccines, tests, wormers, etc.
