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

Jeremy Bentham, English Philosopher
[1748-1832]


Heavenly Creatures

Heavenly Creatures is a registered animal rescue charity dedicated to the care and protection of Newfoundland and Labrador’s pet population. Founded in 2001, Heavenly Creatures has rescued hundreds of homeless pets, from cats and dogs to rabbits and reptiles. One of our major goals is to establish and maintain a no-kill animal complex in the St. John's area.

Staggering Statistics

Few people realize that every year in our province, thousands of healthy cats and dogs are unnecessarily euthanized. For example, last year in St. John’s alone, almost 3000 animals were destroyed at humane shelters, which are not equipped to keep every animal for the length of time it takes to find a suitable adoptive home. Heavenly Creatures provides an alternative to unnecessary euthanization – foster care. Our team of proactive volunteers and our amazing foster families make sure that every homeless pet who crosses our doorstep is guaranteed a forever home.

Over the last five years, Heavenly Creatures has established an extensive volunteer foster network. Our foster parents give our animals shelter and care until a permanent home can be found. This may take weeks or months, but it means the difference between life and death for a homeless pet.

The Heavenly Creatures team also works continuously to raise public awareness about the importance of spaying and neutering, and the cruel reality that homeless animals face.

Becoming a Guardian Angel

Heavenly Creatures does not receive any government funding; it operates solely on private donations from concerned citizens and local businesses. The Guardian Angel Program provides a steady income for Heavenly Creatures’ basic foster care expenses – pet food, supplies and veterinary bills. Under this program, sponsors pledge a monthly contribution which ensures that a homeless animal is kept in our foster care program until a loving home is found.

Through their generous contributions, our Guardian Angels earn their wings by giving a homeless pet a new lease on life.

There are four levels to the Guardian Angel Program:

  • Silver Wings ($9.99 monthly)
  • See the Silver Wings Member List.
  • Golden Wings ($19.99 monthly)
  • See the Golden Wings Member List.
  • Platinum Wings ($29.99 monthly)
  • See the Platinum Wings Member List.
  • Heavenly Halo ($49.99 monthly)
  • See the Heavenly Halos Member List.
