“You can judge a man’s true character by the way he treats his fellow animals.” ― Paul McCartney
There’s a very good place in Mission, B.C. called SAINTS, a beautiful place for senior and special needs animals that takes care of the animals no one seems to want. Those in their advanced years, crippled, abused or suffering from mental issues. These are the animals nobody wants but SAINTS ensure they enjoy a full and healthy life, revelling in the things our pets take for granted such as shelter, food and most of all, love.
From their website:
SAINTS was started in December 2004 after volunteers at other animal shelters saw many senior animals spending their last days in a shelter or pound. From the time we opened our doors, the number of animals in need has been astounding and ever-growing. When SAINTS moved into it’s first location it started with 16 cats, 12 dogs and 2 rabbits. SAINTS has since found it’s permanent home on 3 beautiful acres in Mission, BC with a warm and cozy home, a sturdy and well constructed barn, several outbuildings just waiting to be renovated for future use plus fields to play in and a pond to swim in… we have found a little bit of heaven on earth for our very special friends.
Watch the video and discover how how so few can bring happiness and sanctuary to so many deserving animals. And drop by saintsrescue.ca for more information or do what I did and send them a few dollars at 1000saints.ca to help with the great work they’re doing. If you can watch the video below and still not consider sending them a donation, you’ve probably never had a pet.
