A Busy Saturday of Helping Animals

Tomorrow DRC has a full day of helping out animals in need.  I’ll be starting off the day at the PunkOttawa Fleamarket where I’ll be a vendor, and then off to a local show I organized called Titties 4 Kitties 3!

Both events benefit The Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue where I volunteer. While the fleamarket also benefits the Wild Bird Care Center, and Titties 4 Kitties 3 also benefits SafePet Ottawa.

For more details on both of these events check out the above links to the Facebook Event Pages.

Along with the places mentioned in the event, tickets for Titties 4 Kitties 3 will be available at the DRC table at the PunkOttawa Fleamarket tomorrow.

AAW – Hopeful Hearts Dog Rescue

This week Animal Awareness Wednesday is featuring Hopeful Hearts Dog Rescue.

They are a non-profit dog rescue that has been in Ottawa, Ontario since September of 2007.  Although they rescue dogs of all sizes, ages and condition, Hopeful Hearts was created especially to help senior and special needs dogs. These angels are often most turned down by rescues due to the difficulty with finding adoptive homes and inherent vet costs.

I had the pleasure of meeting a few of the ladies from the wonderful organization at the annual Titties 4 Kitties fundraiser of which Hopeful Hearts was one of the two beneficiaries. If the rest of the people in the organization are great as these ladies, then the dogs in their care couldn’t ask for nicer  and more loving foster homes.

Here are pictures of a few of the Hopeful Hearts looking for forever homes. To find out more information and see other Hopeful Hearts head on over to their website!

AAW – Sit With Me Shelter Dog Rescue

This weeks AAW – Animal Awareness Wednesday spotlight is on Sit With Me Shelter Dog Rescue!

“Sit With Me is an Ontario-based rescue who strongly believes that shelter dogs deserve better than being abandoned by those who were tasked with being responsible for them.” 

“We do not discriminate based on breed, age, medical background or current medical state. Those animals that need them most, those who are in jeopardy of losing their lives due to space or time in a shelter, will be the dogs we seek out for rescue. “

I had the pleasure of meeting some of the dogs from SWM at the Rescue Block Party a few weeks ago. All of the dogs were well behaved and happy as clams to be out and about. Some of you may remember the little guy I shared a picture of whose bandanna was so big it was a cape (pictured above). His name is Buzz and he’s currently one of the featured adoptable on their website.
