Look, we know we aren’t the only rescue in town – or even in the province. In fact, we love working with other rescues to help save dog lives. (We even reach out to support non-dog rescues, though our priority will always remain dogs.)
To us, being a partner means a few things:
- Meeting the needs of homeless dogs – Sometimes a dog gets brought to a rescue that just doesn’t have the resources or audience to find it a good home. For example, a Great Dane might be brought to a rescue that really specializes in lap dogs. For the dog’s sake, and for the best use of resources, it’s better to send the pup to a rescue that has the facilities and training skills to handle that kind of dog.
- Supporting other organizations so everyone achieves their goals – We’re happy to post and promote dogs that are in the care of other organizations (though we ask the “owner” rescue to handle screening, and adoption).
- Working together – who says we can’t do events together? Talk to our events coordinator if you’re interested! firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s a win-win!
To kick things off, here are a few organizations that we already work with: our partners in rescue. Click on their logo to learn more about them by visiting their website.
Critter Cabs – A transport co-ordination group whose purpose is to safely transport rescue animals within Quebec and Ontario. People in this group are volunteers who give their time, gas and use of their vehicle to help death-row animals get from life-threatening situations to the safety of rescues. We also help rescue groups who need transport assistance.
