We have entered the Aviva Community Fund competition!
We have a chance to win $50,000!!
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.
Please vote for us, and share the link with your friends!

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.
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!
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!
