An animal rescue group or animal rescue organization is dedicated to pet adoption. These groups take unwanted, abandoned, abused, or stray pets and attempt to find suitable homes for them, or take them in at their own sanctuaries. Generally speaking, animal rescues run on pure donation and goodwill of animal lovers. It is very rare for an animal rescue to receive any help or funding from the government. Animal rehabilitation is a profession involving the treatment and care of sick, injured or orphaned animals with the goal of healing animals and ensuring they live a happy and healthy life.
North Mountain Animal Sanctuary is a registered charity located in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. Their mission is to provide care, comfort, and rehabilitation to abused, neglected, and unwanted farm animals.
At present they provide shelter for goats, rabbits, sheep, ducks, pigs, and chickens. They work to prevent the suffering and neglect of farm animals by raising public awareness.
Their animals are funded 100% by the generosity of caring individuals. The more funding they receive, the more animals they can rescue. Donations help provide medical care, nutritional needs, and a comfortable environment. As a professional organization they are committed to honesty and transparency, therefore in 2010 they worked diligently to achieve charitable status. Their finances and operations are reviewed yearly by the federal government.
Proceeds raised this quarter will go specifically to helping to build a new baby barn for chickens.
