Pop-Up Rescue Project Still Needs Support

by Shanine Sealey

The Pop-Up Rescue Project was created after Kristine O’Brien, the owner/operator of Paws Republic Centre for Pets saw that the lives of over a hundred animals were in jeopardy in a northern Saskatchewan community. Paws Republic and From the Streetz Rescue Foundation, along with support from numerous other rescue organizations throughout Saskatchewan, Manitoba, British Columbia and Alberta have since helped to ensure that these dogs were given the chance to live the rest of their days in loving homes.

On Sunday, February 11th, an additional 34 dogs were transported to the rescue location in Martensville, where they will remain temporarily until they are moved to another rescue, adopted, or put into a foster home.

In total, over 150 dogs were saved, and with this amazing accomplishment comes a large amount of vet bills, as each dog received vaccinations, deworming as well as any other veterinary needs for health concerns that come up along the way.

Since the project began on January 30th, there have been hundreds of donations of food, treats, beds, blankets and more, made to help support the rescue; however, one of the main needs currently is financial support to cover the growing vet bills.

If you are interested in helping, e-transfers can be sent to info@pawsrepublic.ca, donate@streetzrescuefoundation.com, or at https://www.tiing.ca/rescue-paws#update-event.

You can also help support this project through bottle donations at any SARCAN location within the province using the Group Name ‘Pop-Up Rescue Project’ and Group Phrase ‘#101’.

“We have had many families asking how they can help support this project with their children, and this is a great way to get them involved. They can host a mini-bottle drive in their neighborhood, ask their friends and families for bottle donations, collect bottles through their sports organizations and more. Every penny helps right now and we are so grateful for the support,” O’Brien stated.

“We promised this group of pups the chance at a happy life and we will continue to help them until the last pup of this rescue has been placed. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your continued support. It really does take a village,” the Pop-Up Rescue Foundation stated via a social media post.

Volunteers are still needed to help cleaning crates, feeding, walking and showing these dogs love and compassion.
