Are You Up 4 Some Change?
Dog overpopulation negatively impacts the community through dog bites, mauling deaths, pack aggression, disease transmission, and animal suffering. It is also identified as one of the top ten environmental problems within our communities and can have a psychological impact on children and be linked to subsequent violent offences within the community. According to the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), it is estimated that there are 400 million stray dogs worldwide. This translates into approximately 75 percent of the worlds dog population. The first step to help remedy this escalating situation begins locally. Something as small as regular vaccinations and surgical sterilization (spay/neuter) can prevent aggression, disease transmission, and animal suffering. Our foundation is dedicated to sharing our passion, resources, knowledge and experience to make this change happen, but we need your help
pause4change Rescue Foundation is compiled of dedicated volunteers who have worked within Alberta Animal Rescues for years. It became evident to us while working within the animal rescue community that there needed to be an organization that looked beyond being a short-term solution and worked alongside our community as equal partners. It is our focus to build a foundation that works collaboratively within the community and provides the supportive structure necessary to develop a sustainable social infrastructure with respect to animal control.
