Rescue for Life is a small animal no-kill rescue group operated out of Spruce Grove, Alberta. 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.

Rescue for Life relies solely on volunteers and donations.

We have entered the Aviva Community Fund competition!
We have a chance to win $50,000!!

http://www.avivacommunityfund.org/ideas/acf13908

We have three initiatives:
(1)  Removing/rehoming unwanted pets:  To date for 2012,  approximately 170 animals have been rescued from the communities we work in - all are spayed/neutered and receive full vet care.  All animals are fostered until adopted.  We are a no-kill rescue. 

(2)  Responsible pet ownership education: We are actively involved in educating the general public about responsible pet ownership including the importance of spaying/neutering.  We also provide handouts covering food selection, shelter requirements, the effects of chaining and animal abuse, dog aggression and behavior, the benefits of spaying/neutering, and many other topics.

(3)  Spay/neuter initiatives: All animals adopted through Rescue for Life are spayed/neutered.  We also provide discounted spay/neuter procedures to families in the communities we work in.  In addition, we  have completed spay/neuter clinics and are currently planning mini clinics with our veterinary partners.  If we can raise the funds our goal is to purchase a spay/neuter van that can provide on-site veterinary care in these rural communities.

Rescue For Life is proud to announce that DRAGON FX KINGSWAY will be hosting our 2nd Annual Paws for a Cause Charity Event !

On Sunday, August 26, 2012, Dragon FX will be open from 11-5 offering a selection of pet-inpsired tattoos!



Here’s how it works!

-Tattoos are on a first come, first served basis.

-You may choose from a selection of small pet-themed tattoos. We will have a variety of tattoos to choose from (There will be no custom prints available or variations of sizes due to time constrictions, but we’re confident we’ll have something for everyone!) Every visitor to the studio that day will also get a $20 Dragon FX Dollars voucher good for tattoo and piercing services on your next visit!

Keep an eye on the event page for some examples of the tattoos that will be available on that day!

-Tattoos will be a $60/tattoo flat rate with a one-time set up fee of $10/person to cover new, sterile tattoo supplies. Please bring cash only.

-You must be 18+ years old, no exceptions. You must have government issued photo ID.


**All of the tattoo artists are volunteering their time and taking an unpaid day off of work in support of the fundraiser. Please don’t forget to tip your artist! **

**Dragon FX and Rescue for Life maintain the right to refuse service for any reason and do not guarantee that everyone will be tattooed for any reason including (but not limited to) health concerns, time constraints, anatomical placement concerns, etc**

**As per Kingsway Mall regulations and for the health and safety of our studio and clientele, please do not bring your dog to this event**


If you have any further questions please give us a call at 780.702.6151 or contact the studio directly at 780.444.2233

We have 6 adorable kittens up for adoption!

Please visit our Facebook page or website to see more photos

Terribly sorry, I’ve been slacking off in the updating department lately.
Now things are back on track, so here’s the news!

We have a great event tomorrow at Tail Blazers in Sherwood Park!
We will be having a Clip-A-Thon and adoption event from 10-6.

Adoptions:
Django, Franklyn, Tangey, Lance and Lola (two of the L Puppies) all went to their forever homes!
We have a few more dogs that are well on their way to being adopted and will be going home soon so watch for updates.

Unfortunately we had Maisie and Mugsie come back to the rescue.  They are both back up for adoption.  Sammy and Zip are new dogs that have settled into foster homes and are looking for their forever homes.

We’re always in need of foster homes and volunteers, so if you’d like to help out please head on over to our website and apply today!

We have a ton of events coming up, here’s what’s going on in May!

Tail Blazers in Sherwood Park is having us back for another Clip-A-Thon event May 19.

 

We’re having another Adoption Event with BBQ and fun for the whole family May 27


See our Facebook page for more details on both of these events!

Dixie finally had her puppies!
Wednesday, she gave birth to NINE puppies.  She had 7 girls and 2 boys!

She’s been a good momma so far, and the pups are absolutely adorable.
Good job Dixie! 

We had some more adoptions this week!
April finally found her forever home with a great family who has adopted from us previously.  Rupert also got adopted and we had a foster fail with Jenny.. her foster family decided they just couldn’t part with her.

We had a few more intakes this week as well.  You can see these cuties on our facebook page.

Poor Dixie still hasn’t had her babies!  Hopefully they come soon.

This week saw us gain some new foster homes and some very generous donations.
A big thank you to all of you!
