From the Whisker Rescue Society of Alberta

Hairball Madness

Whisker Rescue is proud to support 3 fantastic people who have offered to get Mohawks as a fundraiser for the Whisker Rescue Society of Alberta. They will be gathering donations and have their golden locks trimmed on July 13th at 1:pm at 22 Durand Crescent Red Deer.

We at Whisker Rescue are asking for everyone to please support them with donations in their effort. Lenn Opseth and his 2 grandsons, Brylan (10) and Anthony (8) Hawkings are so generously shedding their hair so very deserving kitties can live.

Donations help this very crucial organization save lives of kitties one life at a time which is struggling each day. Whisker Rescue Society is 100% volunteer run, we have no paid staff. I am asking for everyone, friends and family who can and would like to donate to this very worthwhile cause to support these 3 wonderful, generous people.

Every dollar raised goes towards the kitties and they thank you. God Bless you and kitty kisses to all. We could kiss you right meow!!

With Covid-19 this year, we are desperately low on donation dollars due to not being able to do so much of our fundraising. Every bit you can donate to this wonderful cause means so much and we thank you. Tax receipts given for donations of $20 and up!

Whisker Rescue is a non-profit charitable organization based out of Red Deer, Alberta, that strives to provide basic needs such as shelter, food, medical attention, and adoption opportunities to stray, homeless & surrendered cats in our care.

We are a no-kill organization that relies on volunteers to give every cat that enters our adoption program the time, patience, love and cuddles they need until their forever homes can be found.

Our Services Include:
• A warm kennel and cuddles from our 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)
• Financial assistance to families (when funds are available) to assist in spaying or neutering their own cats to help control stray populations.
