Animal Rescue Group FULL of Felines
Animal rescues and shelters across the province have been inundated with homeless cats and kittens and adoption rates are not keeping up. Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS) is one of those organizations who has hit capacity and may have to shut it’s doors to new cats due to the large number currently in care. AARCS is currently caring for over 375 cats and will have to closed intake on new cats until they can make more room. “We need to get some of the currently adoptable cats into new homes so we can rescue more.” says Deanna Thompson, AARCS Executive Director. “Kitten season is out of control this year and we are getting calls everyday to help rescue and rehome cats. The last thing we want to do is turn cats away, but every shelter has their limit.”
As a result of the increased number of cats and kittens, AARCS is encouraging the public to come forward and adopt a cat or kitten. AARCS will be having an Emergency Cat Adoption Event this Saturday, July 1th from 11 am – 2 pm at their shelter in north-east Calgary (Bay F, 3851 21 Street NE) and have reduced adoption fee on adult cats. There will also be information on fostering an animal and volunteering with the society. AARCS is calling on the community for help in finding homes for these very deserving felines and is also encouraging everyone to spay and neuter their pets. “We rely on the public, not only for financial support to care for these homeless animals, but also to provide them adoptive homes.”
In addition, AARCS will be accepting donations of dry and wet kitten food, gastro medical food, cat litter and financial donations to cover mounting veterinary bills for the homeless cats in their society.
