I have decided to reactivate the website. We are still open and we have been very busy helping other organizations and rescue. WCRR is closed for intake. But we will of course help any dog in a shelter if we can. It is not always about taking dogs into our home. Sometimes it is about spreading the word. We will always be available to help the dogs that have crossed our path. That will never change
This summer has been very busy with Jim and I traveling to Kamloops to help with the CDART (http://www.cdart.org/index.htm). This is an organization that is near and dear to my heart. Helping animals displaced by disasters is often hard work but the rewards outweigh that. To see pets returned to their families is all the thanks required.
The board of WCRR decided that we wanted to help in a meaningful way. We contacted CDART and another organization called Pet Safe Coalition (http://www.petsafecoalition.ca/) and asked them what we could do to help. CDART told us they needed food for some pigs in their care. Pet Safe Coalition asked us to help with vet bills. Both those organizations received $500.00 right away.
While we were in Kamloops at the CDART shelter Jim and I agreed that we would also help 2 dogs that were displaced by the fires. Both Miley and Dallas got some much needed vet care. They were vaccinated, spayed, treated for parasites and are both now in happy forever homes. Their combined costs were around $900.00. But it needed to be done and we were happy we could help.
There have been a few other animals that have needed our help and so we do what we can. All of it costs money and time and energy. But that is what we signed up for. It has taken a big bite out of our resources and we will be doing some small fundraisers in the next couple of months. So stay tuned. I will try to keep the blog updated at least once a week. I will showcase dogs that need homes. And I might share my thoughts and feeling on how the rescue community is changing
Thank you for your continued support over the years. Without your help we could not do what we do
