Our rescue focuses on the health and welfare of companion animals in remote First Nations and surrounding communities in BC. Currently, we are working with teh Saik'uz FIrst Nation near Vanderhoof, BC. At present, we have removed and re-homed strays and unwanted animals with partnering rescues (Crooked Leg Ranch, West Coast Rottweiler Rescue, VIctoria Humane Society); provided an Animal Wellness Clinic in May 2014 (vet check, vaccinations, parasite control, education for children and the community, dog/cat food, treat, collar, leashes, pet toys, etc); and funded transport and sterilization for dogs and cats at the nearest vet clinics for sterilization. Saik'uz has been highly involved with in-kind and cash contributions however, ongiong fundraising by volunteers is necessary to continue to provide the necessary work to get the animal population manageable and the community educated and self sustainable with respect to their pets.
We would like to increase the capacity and size of our volunteer base by training our BOD to encourage, motivate, and attract volunteers.
