No Header Title




July 2013:  We have stopped dreaming and want to make our dream a reality.  Pound Rescue is now fundraising for an animal shelter and sanctuary.  We have put down the first $100 000 and plan to reach our goal of $1 million in four years.  We envision a place without a lot of frills,  yet still beautiful.  A place where a dog can be a dog, a cat can be a cat and volunteers, visitors and potential adopters love to spend some time .  As far as animal care goes, it will be state of the art.  For animals it will be a safe haven finally free of the neglect and abuse most have suffered.  For humans it will be one more place to go where you can see and learn and realize what really matters in life.

Please help us meet our goal as the time will be passing fast and everyone and every donation counts!   Please mark your donation with the word “sanctuary”, so we know where you want your contribution to go.  Please be a part of making our dream come true.

Donations can be made online through Canada Helps.  Or they can be mailed to us at Box 1446 Okotoks, Alberta T1S 1B4.  Thank you for helping make our dreams come true!
