All We Want For Christmas Is a Tractor

Posted: November 25, 2017 at 12:14 pm

The weatherman is predicting snow again this year. A tractor/plow would help us immensely if that snow shows up. And we can use it throughout the year. We will take a used one.

Bratwurst is asking for help

Posted: November 6, 2017 at 3:15 pm

 

 

Bratwurst came to SAINTS March 2017 because he suddenly was paralyzed and his young owner did not have the $6,000 – $8,000 funds required for spinal surgery. Fast forward to November 2017 and Bratwurst body has been through a lot of trauma. He has now had 3 surgeries – his last being at the beginning of October. Bratwurst has now blown 3 discs! In his last surgery the neurologist fixed the new blown disc and the 3 discs below as a preventative measure. We are hoping 3 times is the charm as we do not want Bratwurst’s life to be filled with one surgery after another. After the first two surgeries Bratwurst worked hard at water therapy and physical therapy and learned how to walk. This time he is not recovering as quickly. He seems to have some control over his bladder, and he can wag his tail but that is it. We are still hopeful.

Bratwurst can now be called the $20,000 daxi. His surgery has come at a time when we have $30,000 outstanding vet bills to pay off so we have asked Bratwurst to reach out to the public and see if he can get people to help pay off his vet bill of $7,000. Matt Kerr and his team Team Kerr have generously offered to match every dollar donated (up to $2500) to help us reach our goal.

Bratwurst has only one word HELP!

SAINTS AGM October 22, 2017

Posted: October 2, 2017 at 3:18 pm

In accordance with SAINTS bylaws Part 3 (Meeting of Members) Section 13
We will be holding our AGM
Date: October 22nd, 2017
Time: 12 PM – 2 PM
Location: SAINTS Shelter 33860 Dlugosh Avenue Mission, BC

Everyone is welcome, members and non members. It may seem dry and done only to fulfill a necessary government requirement but it also can be very informative. In the last few years we have given a lot of information about our organization. Our statistics on animals (how many were adopted, fostered, passed away, came in), financials for the year, and any significant growth and successes we have had. We love to share this info with people so please consider coming.

Thanks
SAINTS Board of Directors

All the Dogs Are Going to the Ball (W4W)… What About the Cats?

Posted: July 13, 2017 at 6:45 pm

I was always the the kid that wasn’t very athletic and not popular so always picked last in gym class so I always empathize with the cats because they are the over weight, non blonde, non cheerleader person at saints. Only 1/2 of the cats have been sponsored. Please help them (okay me) believe that they aren’t the one’s that never get asked to dance.
