In Memory of Taralyn

This week, we received an email that truly warmed our hearts.

“My name is Shelley, I wanted to email you and inform you of a donation we will be making on behalf of my sister in-law who passed away of brain cancer 4 years ago.

Her name is Taralyn and she loved animals, she had two dogs Henry and Charlie who were both rescues from the Edmonton SPCA.

This past weekend we hosted our annual memorial golf tournament “The Mouse Classic” and we raised $800 which we proudly will be donating to AARCS.

I follow AARCS on facebook and am so happy to be helping such an amazing cause!

My husband and I have two cats, Pearl and Hunter (both rescues) and they are our lives, they aren’t “just cats” to us, they are living and breathing souls that bring us such happiness.

Thanks for the amazing work you and your AARCS team are doing, the world is a better place because of people like you.

Sending you and your volunteers much love and appreciation.

From The Klym Family (Shelley, Aaron, Linda and Taras) and our amazing friends and family”

Thank you to the Klym Family for your generous donation to AARCS and for your beautiful tribute to Taralyn.




Goal Reached!

Today we’ve got some really exciting news to share with you. For the past few weeks, we’ve been asking for donations to be matched by Heather Waddell, a long time AARCS supporter and realtor for Calgary’s high end real estate market. Heather committed to match AARCS’ fan donations up to 10,000, and if reached by Aug 20, 2014 she would include an additional $5000 bonus. Well, we’re proud to say that we have raised the $10,000!!!! Heather will be donating $15,000 for a total of $25,000! The money is going to MUCH need cat enclosures and parvo isolation units!

We couldn’t have done this without the generosity of our fans, so a big THANK YOU to all of you guys! The donations are extremely appreciated, especially during over the course of the last few months when we have been EXTREMELY busy! Again, thank you!!!

An Exciting Offer from Heather Waddell

Heather Waddell, a long time AARCS supporter and a realtor for Calgary’s high-end real estate market for over 30 years, has made an extraordinary offer to AARCS. Heather has committed to match your donations to AARCS up to $10,000 and if we reach $10,000 by August 20, 2014, she will include an additional $5000 bonus!

 These funds will be specifically designated for the purchase of isolation cages for illnesses such as parvovirus and cat cages for the AARCS quarantine shelter facility. If we surpass our fundraising goal, any additional funds will go towards the care of the sick, injured and abandoned animals that we take in on a daily basis. Animals like Lainey, a puppy who came to us appearing lethargic, dehydrated and was discovered to have parvovirus. She is just one of 10 puppies in our care who have needed to be treated for this virus in the last month.

How can you help us meet the $10,000 fundraising goal?

A couple of ways!
