Donations for rescues :)

Hi everyone! You may remember I had come back to the board after my Shannon had passed away, when the fiasco at the Newmarket OSPCA happened. I felt I had to do something to help the voiceless and homeless animals. So, I decided to challenge our FB group members for donations for Rescues. They came through with flying colors. I have a room full of Dog and Cat items to donate to needy Rescues. If you know of any Rescues that can use these items, please ask them to come and post, and our members will vote, and we'll divide the items up to the needy. There's everything from Food both dog and cat, dog/cat bed, bowls, leashes, collars etc. etc. I'll post the link here, as well as the inventory so far. You can also see pictures under my profile on the FB group, the album titled Donations.

I'm not sure what you mean by Registered 14+Kitties, but I'd like to be sure it's a reputable Rescue. There's lots of great stuff

14+kitties, I should elaborate on my response. You don't have to be registered as a charity, I'm just trying to make sure the people who recieve these wonderful donations are not hoarders, and do indeed Rescue eg. spay and neuter, responsibly adopt out, not just to anyone etc.
Please, if you qualify, come and post on the Discussion Board on our FB group ( it would be nice if you signed our petition for Provincial oversight of the OSPCA) BUT not necessary to win, and won't even be asked. I just want to make sure that those who give so much of themselves for the homeless and voiceless, receive a little help. The link for the Discussion board thread is included in my original post. I'm at my limit of 2 dogs in my community, and did this to help in what little way I can, even if it's making you Rescue Earth Angels lives a little easier for a short time

Some of the things would be heavy to send Postal, cans of dog food, cat spa, lots of bedding etc. so transportation if sending the Rescue alot of items may need to be arranged, but very possible! Please come and post if you qualify, I just want to help

I don't do Facebook, but also wanted to say that yes 14+ is an unsung (except here on our site) hero for kitties. Her days and nights are filled with caring for many (make that countless) numbers of cats and kittens that she is caring for and working tirelessly to adopt out. She funds all of this herself! She is my hero and I couldn't think of anybody who would be more deserving of a donation! That said, Shannon, bless you for helping whomever it is, all of the rescues deserve whatever help they can get. But 14+, while not a registered "rescue" will always be our earth angel for kitties here at pets.ca.

14+ most definitely deserves any and all help she gets. I have only been here a short time, but her dedication and love for the furries she takes in is beyond any I have personally seen, and she works as well

I have only 2 dogs, and not enough time. I don't know how these 's do what they do

You guys are too much! Thank you so much for going to bat for me! That's why I love you all so much!
Shannon - What you are doing is a wonderful thing. There are so many deserving rescues out there in desperate need of all of those items. Thank you for doing what you are doing.
I am not great on FB. Tried to find a place to join your discussion and couldn't. I'm sure someone will point it out to me now. However, if you could see your way clear my babies could really use a few of those blankets to help keep them snuggly in the winter. And the cat spa - they would LOVE!!! Thanks so much for any consideration my way. My catty cats and I appreciate it.
Again my friends - thank you!

Hi there everyone! 14+kitties

First, Thank You for all you do for the animals in you Rescue! I'd be honored if you'd accept some of the donations I've collected. I hope these gifts make your most difficult job a little easier, and brings your wonderful furkids a little comfort and joy while they await their forever home. Please give them all a {{{HUG}}} from us. I wish it could be more, I wish I could find each and every one of them a forever home, but these gifts will have to do for now Thank you again for all your hard work, and having a heart of gold, as a person working in Rescue, you are an Earth Angel!

I'll look forward to getting the items to you asap,so can someone please pm me on FB or here so we can arrange transport!


The young pup and the older dog lay on shaded sweet grass watching the reunions. Sometimes a man, sometimes a woman, sometimes a whole family would approach the Rainbow Bridge, be greeted by their loving pets and cross the bridge together.

The young pup playfully nipped at the older one. "Look! Something wonderful is happening!" The older dog stood up and barked, "Quickly. Get over to the path." "But that's not my owner," whined the pup, but he did as he was told.

Thousands of pets surged forward as a figure in white walked on the path toward the bridge. As the glowing figure passed each animal, that animal bowed its head in love and respect. The figure finally approached the bridge, and was met by a menagerie of joyous animals. Together, they all walked over the bridge and disappeared.

The young pup was still in awe. "Was that an angel?" he whispered. "No, son." The older dog replied. "That was more than an angel. That was a person who worked rescue."

Shannon your poem had me crying too. How lovely. Each of your and your friends who collected these donations are truly Earth Angels also. Thanks for recognizing 14+ and her efforts. She truly has a heart of gold and the donations that go her way will be "well appreciated and used". Thanks to those who are going to help arrange getting the items to 14+ also. Everyone involved has been wonderful.

Thank you shannon for letting me know. I was about to email you and see if we could arrange a time I could come and pick the blankets up. Elora is only a couple of hours away. It may have been tight this week though. Hubby is nutty busy.
Thank you again for all of your hard work!!
