Looking for FURever Homes: The Animals of SAINTS

  • Last year we introduced you to the Senior Animals in Need Today Society. SAINTS, as it’s affectionately known, is the latest organization close to our hearts in need of support. An end-of-life sanctuary for senior and special needs animals, from cats and dogs to goats and pigs, the selfless volunteers of SAINTS provide a loving home and medical care to their residents. Over 800 animals have passed through their 3 acre facility in Mission, BC since opening in 2004; some to new homes with their furever family, some over the Rainbow Bridge.

    See Matt’s tour of the self-dubbed “heaven on earth” for these lonely creatures, just looking for a little love and much-needed medical attention that SAINTS provides. Meet a few of these adorables up for adoption:

    • Fifteen year old Magee is spry for his age and always cheerful. This lovable, deaf terrier mix is wary of strangers, but gets back to his playful self after some good get-to-know-you time. Magee is great around other dogs and cats, and best suited to a home without children.More of a cat person? Duke is a gorgeous black American shorthair. Approximately ten years old, he’s diabetic and requires regular injections to maintain his health. A fan of naps, Duke is a low-key kind of guy who doesn’t mind the occasional play time. As always, SAINTS recommends that all cats are indoor cats or have enclosed ‘catios’.
    • Then there’s Bob. As social as all rabbits are, he loves to play–though preferably alone. Bob isn’t interested in other rabbit friends, and is primed for litter box training. He’s game to roam the house under supervision, as a cage is too confining to make a lifestyle.
    • Think you could be one their angels? See a full list of animals up for adoption and permanent foster, as well as the procedure for adopting a ‘saint’ here. You can also email the adoption coordinator directly at adopt@saintsrescue.ca.

    Besides providing exemplary service for our clients, we’ve always aimed to give back to the community we’re part of building up. Thus, as part of our “Giving Back” program, SAINTS receives a portion of the 10% of our net revenues that are donated to community organizations in the Lower Mainland. You can donate too: in the form of monetary gifts, your time, or supplies. The animals of SAINTS are grateful.
