TSR/A program :
This hospital has a ‘’Catch and Release’’ program for stray and feral cats. They trap, sterilize, vaccinate, microchip and socialize the cats before putting them up for adoption. Where the program differs from other organizations is that if the cats aren’t adopted, instead of being euthanized, they are released where they were found. Therefore the animals can’t reproduce in the nature, thereby limiting the ever increasing population of stray cats . Dre Marie-Ève Vaillancourt, one of the very few veterinarians who treat local wildlife animals, also works hand in hand with the Centre Refuge Nymous.
Animal welfare :
Following the story of Nymous the raccoon, which made its way around the world, Rachel and Jacques started the “Refuge Nymous” project. They created a non-profit organization and acquired the proper licenses that enable them to legally treat, help, or adopt orphaned babies of our local wildlife for rehabilitation purposes in the nature. Their licenses also allow them to put in place an observation center for public education. They currently care for over 40 animals, including raccoons, foxes, fawns, groundhogs, an opossum, a wolve, a coyote and a bear.
GUIDE DOGS AND
Founded in 1981, Mira is a
non-profit organization that offers free guide dogs and service dogs to people living with visual impairments and physical disabilities and to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Mira innovates by way of its programs, dog training and fundraising activities. Since its creation, over 3,500 dogs have been offered free of charge to people living with disabilities. This success is largely due to support from the public. Without this help, Mira would not be what it is today.
Rescue All Dogs
Rescue All Dogs (RAD) is a non-profit organization focused on rescuing dogs which have been abused, neglected, abandoned, or are scheduled to be euthanized in high kill shelters. Originally begun in 2018 by Kim Desautels and Yossi Ohana, RAD started as a merchandise store which donated the profits from its sales to fund rescue operations. Over time, it evolved into its own rescue organization which utilizes a volunteer based network of foster homes, veterinarians, and trainers. Dogs which are taken into RAD’s program go through an extensive medical and personality assessment before being prepared for their “furever” homes during the foster phase.
