What services does your organization provide?
ABCR rescues dogs (and cats) from the London and St. Thomas City pounds. We provide vet care,including heartworm testing, spay/neuter, vaccines, parasite treatment and microchipping. Many of the animals come to us with horrific illnesses and injuries. We do not euthanise unless the animal is mindlessly aggressive or terminally ill. We rely 100% on a foster home program to shelter the dogs and cats until they are adopted to new homes. Adoption fees apply, but don't even begin to cover the csosts we incur to save these animals.
Our biggest challenge is having enough foster homes to look after the dogs and cats until they are adopted. We provide all the evt care, pet food, and supplies. We cannot pull a doomed dog from a pound without having a open foster home. We also need help with transportation of animals to the vet or transferring to other rescue groups, picking up supplies, and gerneral errands. We need help at fundraising events as well.
