Grants Through Four Feet Companion Foundation

You are here:

Our Grant To Bear Valley Rescue Society

Write up by Bear Valley: “We had the exciting opportunity this fall to make a difference in the lives of horses and people by gelding a large number of colts/stallions in a herd located on Big Horn First Nation.  These young stallions were fighting among themselves and presenting a danger to the mares and foals, in addition to breeding the mares and creating an overpopulation problem. We presented the idea of gelding all the males to our vet, Dr. Erickson, Pets for Life and Four Feet Companion Foundation (for funding assistance).  Once we started it went very well. Most of the horses were not difficult to sort and handle. There were a couple of the horses that were a bit more difficult and required some reformatting of the corral/chute system in order to get them sedated. We had figured on maybe 8 or 9 gelded, but actually got 10 done! Thank you Four Feet Companion Foundation and Pets For Life for helping us make a difference!

Community Support: Listed below are a few other ways we have been able to provide support to the animal community.

Our Grant To Cochrane & Area Humane Society

This was a transport fund. The funds were used solely for transportation costs for picking up animals in need from approved rural rescues and areas. Numerous trips were taken to ensure timely pickups of animals, as many animals requiring our help needed immediate medical attention.  The Cochrane and Area Humane Society worked with partner organizations so that animals were spayed and neutered as well as with medical care and adoption services. In total Four Feet support helped transport 374 animals to shelters from rural communities over a 7 month period. The animals entering their care received necessary medical care, training and the opportunity to be adopted to their forever homes. 275 Dogs, 89 Cats and 1 Rabbit!

Our Grant To Alberta Animal Rescue Crew  Society

This grant was to the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS) and their Feral Cat Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) Program in Southern Alberta. 2016 was a transition year for AARCS as they were focused on the rescued animals in their care and moving their shelter and opening a vet clinic. Four Feet assisted with this grant to allow them to continue to maintain this very important program of TNR during this transition time. AARCS gets numerous calls for help with feral cat populations and because or Four Feet's support the were able to fix, vaccinate, deworm and provide medical care for 47 cats during this time. In all cases they were able to bring kittens and sick animals into their adoption program and TNR the remaining population. Needless suffering and the over population of cats in our province was drastically reduced and this was all accomplished at a reasonable cost, allowing our grant dollars to go further.
