Petsmart Adoption Readiness Grant – Impact Story

In the summer of 2023, Wondergirl, Supergirl, and Stamp, along with their mother, were rescued along with several stray dogs from a remote community by AARCS. The dog was severely malnourished and although she was producing milk, it was not enough to feed her young. It was still unclear if she was their real mother or if stress prevented her from taking care of them, but we had to intervene quickly.

Fortunately, the incredible support of our network of volunteers led us to a foster family willing to take on the responsibility of bottle feeding these three adorable puppies. The devoted foster parents woke up every three hours to feed and care for them. Their foster dogs became valuable teachers and role models, showing the puppies how to “dog.” As a result, Wondergirl, Supergirl, and Stamp not only survived but thrived under their care.

AARCS provided essential medical care including vaccinations, deworming, microchipping and sterilization. Now these little heroes are ready to embark on their journey to eternal homes. In fact, Stamp has already found a loving family, and we’re sure Wondergirl and Supergirl will soon follow suit.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to PetSmart Charities of Canada for their generous Adoption Preparation Grant. This grant has been instrumental in helping animals in need, covering the various costs associated with preparing animals for adoption. From providing milk substitutes to covering medical bills, the journey to finding forever, loving homes for once-homeless animals like Wondergirl, Supergirl, and Stamp takes a lot of time and resources.

Thank you, Petsmart Charities of Canada, for supporting our cause and being an amazing partner in our mission to rescue and care for animals in need.
