Activists Uniting For The Benefit of Animals

Jessie, rescued from Edmonton Reservation Ready for Home

Jessie, who was rescued from an Edmonton reservation, had ten pups – all of whom have been spoken for and seven to whom have already gone to their new homes. Now it’s Jessie’s turn. She will be vaccinated and spayed before we give her up for adoption and we will be asking her adopters to please pay for or at least contribute to the vet costs totaling approximately $400.

We’re guessing Jessie to be coming up for 2 years old. She has been a really great young mother to her ten babies and it was an exhausting experience for her. Now she is starting to relive a puppyhood that she never really had… and acting like a big pup in every way! She is in the right place of course. Pam Cleary, dog trainer, is teaching her the skills needed to become a good family member. However, we think she might be too boisterous for a family with very young children. We’d really like to find a home on Bowen, but if that’s not possible we are willing to consider adopters on the mainland.

If you are interested in meeting her, or know of anybody who might be looking for a really sweet, energetic, four-legged family member, please contact me. Thx. Iris

PS: See below, great news from Rescue For Life… the group who rescued Jessie in the first place. If you are able to help in any way you either contact Rachel at Rescue For Life or contact me and I’ll pass along.


Big news…we are planning a spay/neuter clinic for First Nation dogs/cats and we need your help!

The clinic will be held at the Crestwood Vet Clinic ( Ed monton , AB ) in the middle of May. The clinic will encompass spaying/neutering approximately fifty (50) First Nation dogs (and maybe some cats too). We will be including a tattoo, revolution treatment, Convenia antibiotic treatment, and vaccinations as part of the clinic. In addition, each dog will be going home with about 20 lbs of food and each family will participate in a small education session covering responsible pet ownership.

We are very excited about this but we are going to need some help – foster homes, adoption homes, volunteers, supplies, and donations! Rescue for Life will be covering the full costs of this clinic – there will be no charge to the families, however, we will seek small donations from each family (as applicable).

Volunteers Required! We need volunteers to help us with the planning and execution of this clinic. Please apply today!

Foster Homes Required! Some of the dogs that will be part of this clinic will not have a home to go back to – we are actively seeking new, reliable, foster homes in advance. We would like to screen all applicants prior to the spay/neuter clinic and have foster homes lined up to receive a foster.

Adoption Homes Required! We currently have dogs up for adoption and for many of the dogs that will be part of the spay/neuter clinic, they will either require Adoption or Foster Homes too! If you are looking for that next forever family member, please contact us today to learn more about our adoptive pets and get pre-sceened today.

Supplies Required! The following is a list of supplies we are requesting: – Wire kennels (36″ and 42″) – Plastic kennels (for puppies, medium size) – Blankets – Paper towel (we always need lots of this) – Raw meat and soup bones (this can be freezer burned, NO PORK please) – we use raw meet to lure shy, abused, dogs to us

Donations Required! For many of you, it is much easier to simply make a cash donation than deliver one of the items listed above. In addition, some of these dogs may require additional surgeries – the standard with many reserve rescues – this will be above and beyond our planned spay/neuter budget.  Donations can be made via the following methods: Rescue for Life, 2 Aspen Glen Drive, PO Box 9043 , Spruce Grove , AB , Canada T7X 4H5 . A cheque donation can be made out to Rescue for Life.

Paypal – We now have the choice of either a one-time donation or a monthly donation choice – please to learn more (right hand side column)!

Canadian Tire Money Donations! Yes! You can donate your Canadian Tire money to Rescue for Life! This will help towards all the different pet products that can be purchased at Canadian Tire including kennels, leashes, puppy pads, paper towel, etc. that we are in desperate need of.

Please contact us today to learn more about what we do in the community and how you can help with this spay/neuter clinic!

Thanks, Rescue for Life,, (780) 702-6151, (780) 222-3969
