The winner of the quilt was Tara Rolak. Our second raffle prize was a beautiful infinity scarf made and donated by Haley Robinson- Dandelion Wishes. Winner of the scarf is Leslie Breithaupt. Congratulations everyone! 🐈🐕 100.00 was raised in the Raffle 🐕 $300.00 was raised in total for Fix Fur Life. Thanks everyone for coming out and supporting this great cause. 🐈
I apologize for the graphic pictures. We have had a significant increase in cats needing extensive veterinary care. These are 5 of the latest cases.
- Peanut came to us with a mouth full of horrendously rotten abscessed teeth and a fractured lower jaw. He required a full mouth extraction and repair of his Jaw.
- Benny is suffering from a severe infestation of ear mites causing him to do this to himself. Minor surgery to treat his ears was needed.
- Gary had been roaming the streets unneutered for over a year with eye ulcers so bad he is blind in one eye. He is receiving treatment to save the other eye.
- Millie came to us with a wound on her neck, hind end and back that will require extensive meds and wound care.
These cases and expenses are why we ask for people to consider Monthly giving. It is simple and it is easy and as I said before allows us to plan for these cases. It allows us to be able to help these guys in need and not worry if we will have enough donations coming in to pay for this.
Everyone doing just 5, 10 or 20.00 a month will all add up and allow us to continue helping so many in need.
There are several ways you can participate:
1) You can sign up for using the secure website:
2) You can do E transfers to email@example.com
3) If you are uncomfortable with the on line route you can mail post dated cheque’s to P.O. Box 20091 Belleville K8N 5V1
NO AMOUNT IS TOO SMALL! Thank you to all who have already signed up.

Organization seeking assistance
Since 2004 Fixed Fur Life, a charitable organization, has been working aggressively in the Quinte community to combat pet overpopulation. To date they have successfully spayed and neutered 23,266 cats and dogs in Quinte.
As hard as we work out in the community to combat the overpopulation crisis we are still seeing multitudes of cats and kittens out in our community that are breeding continuously, as evidenced by the recent report of overcrowding at local shelters.
Our goal is to reduce these numbers thus decreasing the burden on local shelters. While the efforts are tireless and frustrating at times we do believe that aggressive Spaying and neutering is the answer and eventually we will see the results.
Fixed Fur Life assists over 2,000 cats and dogs per year. At any given time during the year we will have 2 to 300 cats in our intake area, foster homes and four adoption centers. As we adopt out we take more in from the long waiting list we have acquired. Referrals come to us by word of mouth, the veterinary community, other rescue organizations and shelters.
As the cold weather approaches our efforts are ramped up to get as many pregnant females and kittens off the streets and inside. With these increased efforts comes an increased expense. FFL receives zero funding and relies on donations and fundraisers to continue its efforts. FFL is comprised of volunteers with zero paid staff which allows us to direct all funds to veterinary expenses defined as spaying, neutering and medical emergencies.
We are hoping to reach our next goal of 24,000 by the end of December 2018. If you would like to assist us in our endeavour donations can be mailed to P.O. Box 20091 Belleville K8N 5V1.
On Line donations can be made through our website www.fixedfurlife.com
