Activists Uniting For The Benefit of Animals

Looking to start a cohesive rescue database in British Columbia

Hi All,
I attended both days of the Petnership Conference in Vancouver this past weekend. Plenty of rescue groups present along with trainers, vets, nutritionists and of course suppliers of things like pet friendly accommodations and raw foods and snacks. I had a conversation with Maureen Scott of Aire Canada regarding the many overlaps that happen in our emails – especially with those “desperate, last-minute-save-them-or-they-die-tomorrow” pleas that just wrench us all.
Maureen is starting a list of rescue organizations with an eye to forming a cohesive, informative, centralized place where people can go to find a list of rescue organizations that are either breed specific or in their neighbourhoods to facilitate the adoption of these animals. She is looking to form a central email list so that when an animal is listed on a particular rescue group’s “desperate” list, people on the email list will get one message about the animal. I know some of us get several emails from our various contacts about the same animal and having a central database to work from will reduce and/or eliminate this overlap.
If you are interested in participating in this centralized web site, please let me know by replying to this email directly. I know some of you have my private email but please answer to this one as I am trying to organize my animal related correspondences all together. A short note with your preferred email address and which rescue organization you are affiliated with (if applicable) will help keep the work organized. Please feel free to pass this on to your contacts – with my apologies in advance because some of you will get this message more than once!
All animal supporters wishing to participate are welcome to reply to
Thanks for all you do to help our friends.
