Literally thousands of Animals have come through our doors. The majority of these animals have been abused, neglected and abandoned. Visit our gallery and view these Happy Endings!
If you are ever at the Beer Store on Station Street in Belleville give a big Thank You to this amazing guy. Cassidy Finn has given us hours of his free time to intake all of our empties! He has certainly gone above and beyond for the animals in our care.
HUGE Thanks to Deb Barbe our chief sorter, picker upper and lug to the beer store girl, her mom and husband. Our volunteers Liz &Mark, Karen Cummings, Jenn Munro, Jenn Bell, Kelly Ann & Mark Leonard, Tanya and Sandra Fitzpatrick all working like busy bees picking up and delivering empties.

I will start by apologizing for the graphic photo but felt it needed to be shared. This is what can happen when you do not spay your cat. Sprinkles came to us with a severe Mastitis and pregnant. By the time we received her it had developed to the severity you see here. As the severity increased the only option was to remove her entire mammary chain. Shown above is the contrast to pre and post healing 2 weeks later. Last night ( May 2) she underwent an emergency C Section to deliver her babies. Her babies are doing well and will have to be bottle fed. She has also been spayed. We see so many animals who require extensive medical care and as you can imagine it is quite costly.
The Pandemic situation has resulted in many of our fundraisers being cancelled which will be a huge blow to us financially.
I know these are trying times for everyone. There are options below if you are able to help us financially in any way.

With the consistent overwhelming intake of kittens, pregnant moms, nursing moms and so many cases that need extensive medical care we are putting out a plea. Please consider any of the following options:
1) In desperate need puppy pads, NON clumping litter-We use Pine, wheat or grass litter. These are compatible for the smaller kittens.
2) Wet Food ( We use Friskies- Pate only as the gravy variety can cause GI upset)
4) Consider becoming a monthly supporter
Please share with your friends and family

Friday’s letter to the editor https://www.intelligencer.ca/news/local-news/fridays-letters-to-the-editor-7/
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
