    Business Description Walker's Creek Rescue is a friendly, family run Organization. The rescue is based in Cambridgeshire, and has successfully re-homed many dogs since it was founded. A majority of the dogs that we rescue and re-home, are unwanted pets or abandoned strays. We also save and help the dogs on Death Row, facing euthanasia. The average length of stay at WCR (Walker's Creek Rescue) depends on the circumstances based around the individual. WCR have a non-destruction policy and never put an animal to sleep unless for physical or psychological health reasons. All animals are neutered (unless stated otherwise), micro-chipped, vaccinated, vet checked, flea treated and wormed. WCR receive no Government funding. We purely rely on the donations contributed towards the animals in our care.

    Business Description Our mission at Zoe’s Animal Rescue is to make positive changes in the lives of pets, families and communities in need. We strive to save one animal at a time, we at Zoe’s have learned that “saving one animal does change the world for the better, not just for the animal itself but has ripple effects for good through the lives of the people around it” The core of our mission is fulfilled through a unique five-pronged service approach in collaboration with our partner communities: Spay Neuter Return (SaNeR) Program The heart of our rescue is our Spay Neuter Return (SaNeR) Program. We provide free spay and neuter to animals in our partner communities where income and availability of vet services are a barrier. We have seen an incredible decrease in the population of unwanted animals in our partner communities through this program. Support People and Animals in Marginalized Communities We work to keep animals in their homes and out of rescues. We do our best to support the needs of people and animals in marginalized communities in whatever way possible. We can provide free veterinary care, with mandatory spay or neuter, as we are striving to prevent unwanted litters and promote overall animal health. We also build shelters, and bring food and supplies to the animals. Education for Children and Communities We provide education in our partner communities, school presentations, one-on-one conversations, and ongoing support. We believe that education makes a key difference in the treatment and care of animals, as well as the safety of children and communities. Adoption Program When animals must be rehomed, we place them with loving foster families. Our animals are provided with medical care (which includes a mandatory spay or neuter) and behavioral support so that they are ready for their forever family. Our goal is to place the right animal with the right person to ensure a successful adoption. Commitment to Force Free Handling We are members of the Alberta Force Free Alliance. We are passionate about ensuring all animals are handled in a loving and force free manner in all areas of their lives including training, vet services, and grooming.
