SAINTS (Senior Animals In Need Today Society)
Senior Animals In Need Today Society
SAINTS (Senior Animals In Need Today Society) is a end-of-life sanctuary for senior and special needs animals based in Mission, BC. Since 2004, they have supported these animals that come into their care. They provide a permanent home to elderly companion animals that would otherwise be homeless, and help the animals get the specialized medical care they need.
Canadian Mattress Recycling has supported SAINTS since 2016, donating $500 and many pet beds to the sanctuary. When we recycle furniture, we keep cushions in good condition so that they can be reused by organizations like SAINTS. This way, we can keep unwanted furniture out of landfills.
SAINTS is currently running a fundraiser until May 17th, 2018.
From the campaign site:
In 2017 SAINTS’ vet bills totaled just over $205,000. Most of the residents arrive at SAINTS with huge vet bills. A large percentage continue to require medical attention long after they have arrived. We are therefore always looking for innovative and creative ways to ensure money continues to flow in so that we can care for the SAINTS. The Amazing Raise, one of our more popular fundraisers, is back for its 7th year.
SAINTS Sponsorship Program
According to the SAINTS’ website, the average animal that come into their care can have major health issues. The medical care and attention they need can be expensive; the average monthly vet bill is $10,000, and in 2017 their total vet bills were $205,000 for all their animals. The organization’s sponsorship program allows individuals to sponsor an animal of their choice, from dogs to cats to rabbits and barnyard animals. The program is suitable for those who want to help, but are unable to foster or adopt. The sponsorship allows the organization to pre-book vet surgeries or appointments and order medication.
