Donations Towards Life Essentials

Critteraid initially started this program in 2011 to assist the transient fruit pickers throughout the Okanagan with donations of pet food, leashes and collars for their dogs. The Program has developed to include assistance for people who manage feral cat colonies, sponsorship of interest-free loans for veterinary services when monies permit, and provisions of pet food for the downtrodden. With all of this, comes the necessity for special fundraising throughout the year to try and support this program.

Donations can be made directly to support the Outreach animals simply by clicking on the PayPal button and noting the name of the animal. All donations are graciously received.

Roby Roos

Who is a little Yorkie cross that has been shuffled from loser to loser suffering from a massive amount of neglect. Such as a mouth full of rotten teeth that were so bad she was unable to eat and consequently was half the size she should have been since she arrived at Critteraid. Not is not the worst part, she was made to have so many litters of puppies that her insides were a mess and very badly infected.

Cara, Laddie, and Lassie

Cara (mama) and her two babies (Laddie and Lassie) were found in someone’s backyard dog house. All severely malnourished. This one mama if we didn’t get her off the street could be responsible for 15 more homeless cats (just her alone). She is now in our care. We will find loving homes for them all but first there are medical costs for all three and spay / neuter surgeries for them too.

Allbay / Gigi

On May 23, 2014, we received a phone call from Amanda Chaplin regarding a new born colt, injured and left to die alone on the trail behind the Summerland Research Station. We made several calls and finally were able to reach Sue, an experienced horse woman, who was able to attend and quickly triage the baby. As she got there, a male hiker carried the little foal right to her vehicle.

A little Pomeranian needing urgent care in April 2014 was brought to us through a Home Care Worker from Keremeos. Brownie had damage to her eye and the family asked the Home Care Worker to turn the dog over to the local SPCA because they did not have the funds to have the dog vetted. The Home Care Worker called us from the SPCA because they weren’t able to take her.

In February of 2013, Critteraid assisted a little male, senior Shih Tzu Mix, named Bucky. Bucky’s guardian was terribly worried because he was having difficulty eating, his breath smelled horribly, he had growths all over him that she was concerned about and he kept shaking his left ear. Dr. Pulfer and Dr. Kaplan at TriLake Animal Hospital examined him and had bloodwork done. A urinalysis showed blood and white cells in the urine.
