"The question is not
'Can they reason?',
nor 'Can they talk?',

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.

                OUR CHRISTMAS WISH LIST

1. Monetary donations with which to pay vet bills - see below for donation details. 2. Wet cat food is always our biggest supply need (We use brands such as Friskies, Fancy Feast, Meow Mix cups, Our Compliments, President's Choice and Whiskas) followed by 3. Scoopable cat litter (We particularly love the Qualicat brand from Costco, but are happy for any brand as long as it's scoopable). 4. Scratching posts (We use a lot of cardboard scratching posts and they can often be purchased at pet stores, Walmart and grocery stores for less than $10). 5. Litter boxes and scoops 6. Cat collars (the collars should be the safety kind - the type that stretches or has a clasp that releases if caught on something).
7. Dry cat food 8. Wet dog food. 9. Cat and dog treats

What is a Second Chance Box? It's a starter kit/care package for a homeless animal that Heavenly Creatures has in foster care or a care package for a needy animal owned by a low-income family.

We go through A LOT of food, particularly cat food (there are now far more homeless cats in our province than there are homeless dogs) owing to the sixty to ninety animals we have in foster care at any given time and also because of our Pet Food Bank - we believe that no animal should have to go hungry because their owner is struggling.

When we send an animal to a foster home we send them with a box of supplies (food, toys, collar and so on - everything they need).

The homeless animals we shelter need us to provide them with 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.

The cost is approx. $50-$100 depending on where the supplies are purchased/how much is in the box.

CAN'T MAKE THE FOOD DRIVE BUT WANT TO HELP?


You can use the button below to to sponsor a Second Chance Box, make a one-time donation, or sign up for monthly donations.

WHY DONATE?



We help those who cannot help themselves.

Sadly, the homeless cat population in Newfoundland is worse than ever. It is estimated that here are tens of thousands of homeless cats and kittens on the streets of our province.

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.

Help us cut down on the suffering by getting to the root of the problem.

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!

If you are interested in fostering a homeless kitten or cat, please e-mail us at info@heavenlycreatures.ca
