We are a volunteer-based, donation-only service that provides non-judgemental, supportive help for people who are surrendering their companion animals. We also provide support to people who are looking for a new furry addition to their family. We: -provide free advice and suggestions to people who are experiencing issues with their pets, including but not limited to behavioural issues, training advice, surrender help, and much more -spay/neuter education, advice and referrals -put ads up on petfinder.com and kijiji and around the community -screen potential new homes over the telephone by asking many in-depth questions -do a home visit to make sure the people are "as good as they sound on the phone" -contact their vet and do a vet check to make sure they get a good reference -provide transportation from the old home to the new home -get the old owners to sign a Surrender Form -get the new owners to sign an Adoption Agreement Form This is done on a donation-basis only and circumstances may vary based on the situation. We believe in the power of community, respect and inclusion. Our volunteers have over 10 years experience in the animal rescue field, have rescued hundreds of animals, have worked in the field and have College Diplomas in Animal Care Work. We are committed to helping people find homes for their pets because we care about our community and love animals. If you are someone who is surrendering their animal we know how hard it can be and we know you would want your pet to go to the right home, not a home where your pet will be subjected to neglect, cruelty and abuse.
