Angels of Hope Animal Rescue makes a difference

We do not have a permanent holding facility for rescued animals. We only rely on people who will open their hearts and homes to foster or adopt rescue animals. We desperately need foster families for cats and dogs.

Angels of Hope Animal Rescue is a volunteer group based in Esterhazy, but present in Carlyle and White Bear First Nation.

Our mission is to rescue and find homes for abandoned, sick or injured animals in situations of abuse and neglect in East Central and Southeast Saskatchewan.

We are everyday people who are employed, valued members of our communities and share a very important common interest; we are compassionate towards all living creatures and their humane treatment.

We do not have a permanent holding facility for rescued animals. We only rely on people who will open their hearts and homes to foster or adopt rescue animals. We desperately need foster families for cats and dogs. Without a foster family, we cannot accommodate animals that need help. We currently have 48 cats and kittens and an endless number of dogs waiting to be taken care of. Although we try to move as many animals as possible to larger rescues in town, as they have more foster families and adoptions, the rescues in town are also operating at full capacity.

If you are interested in becoming a foster family, please contact Sherryl Stomp with Angels of Hope Animal Rescue at 1-306-745-7100.

With the cooperation of the general public, municipal councils, band councils, the RCMP, the SPCA and local veterinarians, we do everything we can to help pets in distress or homeless.

Another goal of our organization is to educate the general public on various issues such as health, safety, travel advice and to make an informed decision as to whether or not a pet would blend in with your lifestyle. current life.

We are a non-profit organization and rely solely on public support through fundraising events and donations. To date, we have raised funds through donations, Chase the Ace raffles, community barbecues, bake sales, raffle baskets, online auctions, merchandise sales and services at private functions and public.

All funds raised go directly to the medical costs of sterilization, provision of up-to-date vaccines, medications, etc. rescued animals.

A cat costs between $200 and $300 for a check if there is nothing serious. Our adoption fee for a fully vetted cat is $100. For kittens, our adoption fee is $50. This can cover the visit to the vet and the first vaccinations. If there are other things wrong, it costs more.

If we can’t find homes for the cats, we move them to rescue centers around town where they have a better chance of being adopted, but we don’t get any adoption fees. Thus, the need for donations and fundraising to pay our veterinary bills is greatly needed. Due to the lack of foster/adoptive dogs, we basically bring them in to care for and treat any medical issues they may have and transfer them to rescues in town.

So again, we have no income coming back into the rescue. Our vet bills average $3,000 to $5,000 per month.

At Angels of Hope, we are in our busy fall season and are in desperate need of funds to continue caring for animals in need. To help raise funds, we have one ongoing fundraiser and two upcoming efforts. The current fundraiser is Chase the Ace, which takes place every Friday at the Lakeside Bar & Grill in Round Lake. Ticket sales take place from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and the draw takes place at 8:45 p.m.

Tickets are 3 in number for $20, cash and electronic transfers accepted. You can find and contact Angels of Hope Animal Rescue on Facebook or you can contact Rae-Lyn Bax with Angels of Hope Animal Rescue at 1-306-471-1171.

The first upcoming fundraiser is Prize Bingo to be held at Kahkewistahaw First Nation on October 16 at 2 p.m. and $1,000 to win the jackpot. The canteen is available with chili and bannock, lots of baked goods, potato chips, chocolate bars, soft drinks, and water.

The second is an online auction. It brings in the most revenue of all fundraisers. It will take place on Facebook starting October 21 at 5 p.m. and ending October 24 at 8 p.m. We are always in need of item donations or gift certificates to contribute to the event. The donation can be recognized on social media.

We would like to thank you for considering this opportunity to donate to our organization to help raise funds to help us continue to care for animals in need. If you have any questions regarding the organization, fund management policy or the projects themselves, please do not hesitate to contact Stomp.
