Giving Tuesday is a movement following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, in which we celebrate a global day of giving. As the world kicks off the holiday season with shopping and deals, Giving Tuesday is a time to celebrate giving back to those less fortunate and supporting charities that provide programs to those in need.

We can choose kindness β€” call a loved one, shovel your neighbour’s walk, adopt an animal, make a donation, or buy local. Choosing kindness and giving back during the current state of the world just might give you as much hope and happiness as it does to them.

#GivingTuesday is a movement for everyone who wants to give something back. Across Canada and around the world, GivingTuesday unites us all to help change lives through kindness.


Be a part of something big!
Help spread kindness and hope.

NEARLYΒ 600 REASONS TO GIVE

Did you know that AARCS is currently caring for over 590 homeless animals? So far this year, we have helped over 3,585 animals. We have seen over 970 dogs, 1,510 cats, 21 rabbits and 16 guinea pigs into new loving adoptive homes! 🐢🐱🐰🐹

Our veterinary hospital has handled over 9,000 examinations and over 3,000 surgeries. We have helped over 500 dogs and cats through our Spay Neuter Assistance and Trap-Neuter-Return programs. In addition, we’ve assisted with almost 200 requests for pet food and supplies to those in need and answered the call with almost 200 transport requests.

No matter what challenges come our way, we continue to work hard and will never give up. The reward that comes from showing a rescued animal love and a gentle, kind hand for the first time in their lives is priceless. πŸ’—

Let’s introduce you to some animals getting a second chance because of YOU!

Cara’s tragic ‘tail’ is heartbreaking. πŸ’” This severely malnourished four-month-old puppy has spent her short life alone, foraging for herself and just trying to survive each day she’s been alive. Her fur is thick and hides just how truly emaciated she is β€” so much so that her shoulder blades scrape together and make a noise when she moves. πŸ’” Rescued from the freezing cold just in the nick of time, Cara is right on the cusp of organ damage.

On Saturday morning, our team set out for what would turn out to be a 24-hour-long rescue mission in response to a call for help from a concerned property owner in rural Alberta. Our rescuers were able to secure 54 cats, many of whom had been dumped at this property and left to fend for themselves. 😿 Some of these cats had been injured and/or suffering from illness, but it was Jefferson who needed us the most.

Jefferson was found emaciated and severely dehydrated β€” a condition that is very dangerous for cats. He was extremely weak, and though he was rushed to a partner emergency clinic for immediate care, in the end, our rescuers had to make the heart-wrenching decision for him to be humanely euthanized. 🌈 πŸ’” Though sometimes the end result is not what we would have hoped for, we take comfort in knowing Jefferson felt love in his final hours, and that 53 other cats will not have to suffer his fate.

Overpopulation of cats and dogs in our province is a vast problem β€” this Giving Tuesday, can you help us keep fighting for these animals? Donate RIGHT MEOW at bit.ly/aarcsgivingtuesday2020 and help us raise $20,000 IN ONE DAY! πŸ’š

Muggsy is just a 9-week-old kitten who was found abandoned, injured and unable to walk.Β  πŸ’”Although we don’t know his history or how his injury happened, we knew that he needed help and there was no one to care for him. Muggsy was in need of a second chance. When he arrived at the AARCS Veterinary Hospital, he was very sick, shut down, in shock and in a lot of pain. As if that wasn’t enough, he also had oil on his fur.Β πŸ’”
