What’s coming up…

Mud Run 2014

Summer is almost over and we have been quite busy working on some fundraising events, some past, some future. On July 1st, we had our fourth annual “Dog Day Afternoon”, which was a tremendous success, thank you to all of you. We raised over $4000! Each event brings us closer to our goal: a shelter.

On September 6th, we will be at the CLC Mud Run at Olds College. The WRHS is one of the two charities that are supported by this event by giving all online donations. Come see us, buy your tickets for the draw and cheer for the participants!

Later this fall, closer to Christmas, we will have our annual pet pics with Santa. More information will be posted at a later date.

Keep an eye on our website, Facebook page or Twitter to be kept in the loop of what’s coming up…

Foster Home Program

The Foster home program for cats and dogs was launched a few months ago, however we are always accepting applications. We are looking for homes from Olds/Sundre all the way to Airdrie that can start taking in homeless/abandoned animals for foster and adoption. We have a great network of vets, animal day cares, kennels, trainers, etc. that will help us assess the animals brought in before placing them in foster care.

Want to open your heart and home? Simply fill out the foster application and email it back to program@wildrosehumane.ca.

Cat Trapping in Airdrie

We’ve had a few emails this morning regarding a rather dubious Kijiji post offering to trap ‘problem cats’ in Airdrie. I would urge everyone not to contact this person. Not only because of the strange nature of the post (address is Prince George, BC), but also because it is very dangerous to trap cats at this time of year. If the cats are left in the traps for too long they can freeze. We understand that cats can be a nuisance, but this is not the way to deal with them.
I have also contacted the Calgary and Cochrane Humane Societies, both are metioned in the post, to see if they have any information. I will update if I get any response from them.
