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 – Rideau Valley Wildlife Sanctuary

We all know there are plenty of rescues out there for cats and dogs, but what about the rest of our animal friends? This weeks Animal Awareness Wednesday is featuring just such a place!


The Rideau Valley Wildlife Sanctuary treats and cares for injured or orphaned wild mammals and turtles until they are healthy enough to be returned to their natural habitats. They also offer advice on co-existing peacefully with wildlife and provide humane, cost-effective ways to prevent or solve wildlife conflicts.

They have cared for more than 1,700 animals since 2005, and is the only licenced rehabilitator of small mammals serving the Ottawa and Rideau Valleys. Like most rescues they do not receive any government funding and rely entirely on donations from the general public, businesses and foundations.

For more information you can check out their website and see more great pictures of the animals in their gallery!
