THE GIFT OF LIFE
What do you get the animal lover on your Christmas list?
Raindrop is VERY lucky to still be alive.
Raindrop is a little kitten who was found near dead in a rainstorm in September of 2017 when he was about five or six weeks old.
He was kept alive at the vet clinic using a bird incubator. As he was very tiny and very sick, it was up in the air as to whether he’d make it but he DID and is now a strong boy who continues to grow like a weed.
We’re thrilled to announce that he was adopted and is thus far doing well. He has a mom, a dad and a doggy brother as well as a house that is full of cat doors to explore!
Raindrop’s new mom says:
“So far everything is going great with Raindrop. He is very playful, affectionate, social and seems to trust us.
He has been introduced to all parts of the house and seems eager to want to explore on his own and through the kitty doors.
I thought Raindrop may be afraid of water since he was found in a rainstorm but turns out he absolutely loves it! Here's a cute pic of him watching me in the bathtub. (He also loves to watch our fish tanks).”
Safe and loved!

|CHRISTMAS PET FOOD AND DONATION DRIVE
We hope this Christmas you'll help us fill some furry tummies and give second chances!
When: Dec. 11th-Dec. 23rd, 2017
Where: Heavenly Creatures' office, 3-7 Cashin Avenue, St. John's (we're in a grey strip mall like building that borders on Mundy Pond Road - the entrance to our parking lot is on Mundy).
Hours: During the drive our office will be open from six p.m. to nine p.m. Monday through Thursday evenings and on Saturday and Sunday from noon to six p.m. Our office is closed on Fridays, but our thrift store - which is located in the same building - is open from noon to six p.m. on Mondays and Tuesdays and noon to four p.m. Wednesdays through Fridays (as well as ten a.m. to six p.m. on Saturdays) and donations can be dropped off there.
Your own pets are well taken care of and spoiled, but there are many homeless animals who don't have moms and dads to take care of them, much less spoil them, and so they desperately need HC's help.
Please make a donation of money or pet supplies to help us help them. Consider putting together or sponsoring - see below - a Second Chance Box for a homeless animal.
What is a Second Chance Box? It's a starter kit/care package for a homeless animal. Every time we send an animal to a foster home we send them with a box of supplies. They need us to provide them with supplies, including this initial care package, as part of their getting a second chance - we need to keep them well-fed and happy while they're in foster care awaiting an adoptive home.
For a cat or kitten, that means a litter box, a scratching post, box of litter, litter scoop, a toy, and food, and collar. Total: Approx. $50-$75 depending on where the supplies are purchased/how much is in the box.
For a dog or puppy, that means a bag of food, dishes, chew things, a sturdy collar, a long leash, and a toy. Total: $75-$100 depending on where the supplies are purchased/how much is in the box.
OUR CHRISTMAS WISHLIST:
The average donation is $25, which is a pretty affordable amount.
When just eight people make that average $25 donation, we can pay to neuter a male cat. When twelve people make it, we can spay a female cat.
It is estimated that there are tens of thousands of homeless cats and kittens freezing and starving on the streets of our province.
Help us cut down on the suffering by getting to the root of the problem.
Make a BIG Difference.
Help sponsor a spay or neuter today!

SUCCESS STORY: SAPPER AKA LUCKY
Does anyone remember Lucky, an emergency rescue from October?
While animal rescue is sometimes emotionally challenging work, when we receive updates like Lucky's, it makes it all worthwhile.
Lucky came to us the second week in October; he was a sick kitty who had been found in the parking lot of a grocery store.
Like many homeless kittens who find themselves on the street trying to survive (either because they've been born there, or have been abandoned by their owners), Lucky was in hard shape.
Lucky would not likely have made it to adulthood on his own. He was covered in lice, was starving, and had a very bad eye.
HC got him to a vet, and then advertised for a foster home for him.
On Oct. 11th, a couple of days after his rescue), Lucky went to live with a woman who agreed to foster him for us.
A little over a month has passed, and what a difference time and TLC make!
Now renamed Sapper, this little guy has gotten much healthier in the last month, and has grown like a weed!
The best news of all is that his foster mom has decided that she has to become his purrmanant mom - she has realized that she can't let him go.
Lucky/Sapper is living proof of why spaying and neutering is so important, why foster parents are angels, and also why animal-rescue groups such as ours are desperately needed in our community.
Sapper is one of the lucky ones (no pun intended), but too many homeless kittens don't get their happy endings.
Please get you cats fixed, and if you have ever thought about fostering or donating, there is no time like the present!
