Pet Food Banks And Rescue Resources In Canada

Pet Food Banks And Rescue Resources In Canada can help. If you’re not using the service you can always help a pet in need. But if you find yourself struggling and your local food bank cannot assist in providing your pet with food. Try these places. They may not be listed but if you know of one I can add it to this post.

There are also Rescue Resources across Canada that will support your rescue organization. I have compiled a list that can help you either find a local food bank for your pet or if your rescue organization is in need of help or low on supplies.

Rescue Canada

In the KW area, there is an organization called the Kitchener Stray Cat Rescue before contacting any Stray Cat Rescue please read our article on Feral Cats. She can offer some great information and resources. However, the video is the harsh reality many rescue organizations and street cats endure. And what you can do as a community to help them.

All these organizations are always in need of volunteers and support. It helps our communities solve the issues surrounding the feral cat populations in our cities. Although, we need their help as a community. They need your help and support to keep these programs up and running. Furthermore, you can simply just educate yourself to do your part in helping these street cats.
