Dear Minister Crummell; I am deeply concerned about the recent proposal by Eagle Ridge Farm Ltd. to expand its mink farm from 300 to 3000 animals. Many countries have banned or severely restricted fur farming, and the The Humane Society International, Canada is calling for a ban on fur farming in Canada. Newfoundland and Labrador [...]
We know that many of you who visit our website cannot adopt yet another animal, but still want to help. Especially help an animal that has been with us for many months and just does not seem to create any interest or find a home. There are so many – dogs like Sheila, Brooklyn and [...]
Cats must be adopted in pairs as the move will be less traumatic and adjustment to their new home will be easier if they have the security of one or more trusted companions.

Intensive farming for 95% of all food animals. See the little one at moms head? Mom unable to move? Animal Rescue Organizations raising funds through BBQ’s? Sorry, not us.
Veal creates: The ultimate cruelty in intensive farming, and how could an animal rescue group raise funds through BBQs, and by doing so condone and be part of this cruelty?
Pound Rescue does not agree to not adopt these purebreds from a rescue group. It is not their fault to be bred into cripples and to then be euthanized, they should not be punished for it but have the chance live a life as good as possible for them. Those who adopt from a rescue group should be motivated by compassion, not looks. If not then who could become ambassadors for these poor dogs, in the dog park, in their neighbourhood, to speak out against such breeding. Who would it be?
What if, at your local pet-supply store, you could purchase a dog-training tool that would make your dog weaker, klutzier, and less intelligent? And what if this tool increased your dog’s frustration and fearfulness about the world and made him or her less likely to bond with you? Would you buy it? Of course not! Yet, millions of these “tools” are sold every year to unsuspecting American dog lovers who want the absolute best for their dogs. The tool is a “crate,” which is just a euphemism for a cage. In fact, dog crates are substantially smaller than the cages that are used to house dogs in laboratories.
