Paws In Need Animal Rescue Society
Paws In Need Animal Rescue is a small non-profit animal rescue in the Edmonton area. They rescue stray, homeless dogs and cats from many different situations.
All of their rescues are brought into foster homes where they are rehabilitated whether it be for health reasons, training or some much needed TLC before they are available for adoption into their forever homes. They believe all animals young and old deserve a second chance.
Paws In Need Animal Rescue is run solely by volunteers and through community support of fundraising, donations and volunteers, they are able to care for the animals while they are with them and help them on the road to recovery and towards finding their forever homes.

The Barrhead Animal Rescue Society (B.A.R.S.) was established in January 2010, and is dedicated to ensuring the humane treatment of all animals.
They provide a safe and nurturing environment for unwanted, abandoned, lost, and mistreated pets until they can be placed into loving homes. Through proactive intervention, public education, fundraising events, and community outreach, the Barrhead Animal Rescue Society seeks to promote respect for all life by breaking the cycle of abuse, neglect and pet overpopulation in the community.
The Barrhead Animal Rescue Society is supported through private contributions.
Some of their goals include :
- To develop a program to adopt rescued animals out to good homes.
- Develop a neutering and spaying program for cats and dogs.
- To educate the public on the proper management and care of their pets.

Whisker Rescue is a no-kill organization relying on volunteers and foster families to give every cat that enters their adoption program the time, patience, love and cuddles they need until their forever homes can be found. They provide basic needs such as shelter, food, medical attention and adoption opportunities to stray, homeless and surrendered cats.
Each cat is vet checked, vaccinated, de-wormed, spayed or neutered, and tattooed or micro-chipped. They are proud to offer a Lifetime Return Policy, no questions asked! They have variable adoption fees for some programs: “Seniors for Seniors, Positive Pals, Special Needs and Barn Buddies.”
Although they do not have a shelter, they are fortunate to work in cooperation with several Red Deer facilities (as well as Edmonton & Olds), who have generously donated time and space to help them.
Some of what Whisker gives to felines in need…..
- Financial assistance to families (when funds are available) to assist in spaying or neutering their own cats to help control stray populations.
- A warm kennel and cuddles from volunteers and vet staff.
- Time spent nurturing and bottle-nursing kittens without mothers.
- Food and supplies such as litter, litter boxes, blankets and toys for foster homes.
- Medication for cats and kittens suffering from diseases and infections (i.e. Upper Respiratory)
You can support this wonderful rescue by donating your time as a foster or volunteer or provide much needed financial aid by signing up as a Guardian Angel or by making a one time donation.
Little Cats Lost
Little Cats Lost (Trap-Neuter-Return) Society is made up of a small group of compassionate, intelligent volunteers that believe in the humane treatment of cats, owned or unowned.
Their mission is to humanely reduce euthanasia and the growth rates of feral cat colonies by preventing their breeding cycles through spay/neuter practices, while educating the public on the merits of a Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program in the community.
They also supports wild/stray cats/kittens that find themselves deposited in the city Animal Care & Control Centre. Through their relationships with animal care facilities, they remove many animals classed as unadoptable, then rehabilitate those animals and place them up for adoption into loving forever homes through the adoption arm of the organization. It is thanks to their work with street kittens and cats that they have been able to gain a great deal of behavioral experience in this regard.
LCL do not receive any government funding therefore rely solely on the generosity of donors.

The Hervey Foundation for Cats is a place of refuge for cats who otherwise would perish: the abandoned, the abused, the sick, the old, the suffering and was founded by Marjorie Hervey in 1998 to provide care and loving homes for the unwanted, uncared for and abandoned cats that fall into our society.
