About

WHO WE ARE

RESCUE NL was founded to address the problem of animal abuse and neglect in Newfoundland and Labrador. We strive to help any animal that is being mistreated and/or requires assistance to live a happy, healthy life.

Rescue NL began operation in May 2015.Β  We are an incorporated non-profit organization that operates under a no-kill policy lead by a board of directors with a combined 42 years of animal rescue experience. We take in animals that have been seized by the authorities (RCMP or RNC), surrendered by their owners, or transferred from another shelter where the animal has reached their holding limit and they are scheduled to be euthanized. Our animals are currently held in a network of foster homes.

All of the work that Rescue NL undertakes is done by volunteers, the only payment here is in tail wags and licks.

Like most rescue groups, Rescue NL operates entirely on public support and fundraising.

WHAT WE DO

Every single day, animals need our help. We feed, exercise, bathe, socialize, play with and provide comfort to these abused, neglected and abandoned animals. We drive the wounded and sick to the veterinarian, change bandages, administer medications and monitor their recovery – with the goal of finding each animal a loving home.

    • Jennifer the SPCA, as with many other rescue and advocacy groups, all do some amazing work.

      Who is Rescue NL? Every single day, animals need our help. We feed, exercise, bathe, socialize, play with and provide comfort to these abused, neglected and abandoned animals. We drive the wounded and sick to the veterinarian, change bandages, administer medications and monitor their recovery – with the goal of finding each animal a loving home. We operate a no-kill shelter, we have facilities to take on any type of domestic or livestock animal in need but our largest numbers are dog followed by cats.

      All of our animals are vet checked, spayed/neutered and microchipped before an adoption is finalized.

      We also strongly support groups such as Voice for the Voiceless that are advocating for legislative change and improved enforcement of animal protection laws.

    • Robyn,

      Rescue NL is an incorporated non-profit organization that operates under a no-kill policy. We take in animals that have been seized by the authorities (RCMP or RNC), surrendered by their owners, or transferred from another shelter where the animal has reached their holding limit and they are scheduled to be euthanized. Our animals are currently held in a network of foster homes and a shelter that is not open to the public, however Rescue NL has begun construction of a modern facility that will be open to those who wish to adopt one of our animals. This shelter is being paid for entirely by the personal donation from two of the founders.

      Rescue NL’s books are audited annually by a chartered accountant who also files all required financial statements. Quarterly activity reports will be published on our website.

      Like most shelters and rescue groups, Rescue NL operates entirely on public support and fundraising.
