Many Thanks to our friends at Trottage Life for initiating this fundraiser for us. See the link below for supplies we are in desperate need of.
This store is absolutely amazing! If you haven’t already you need to go. Such a great assortment of unique items. 

Help Us Help Them!

From now until the end of November, 10% from every purr-chase will be donated to our friends at Fixed Furlife Quinsey!

Fixed Fur Life is composed of a dedicated rescue team and and amazing network of foster homes. All of their rescue animals are spayed or neutered and provided a clean bill of health prior to placement. This registered charity relies on the generosity of their foster families, partnerships with local businesses and support from the general public.

Here at Trottage Life we are HUGE animal lovers. As pet owners, we understand the cost associated with food and veterinary care. Rescue is such important work and that work comes with a cost. We want to support our friends at Fixed Fur Life as much as we can.

Visit us in person at 169 College St. W. in Belleville to drop off supplies to our on-site donation bin. Fixed Fur Life is currently in need of:

– Canned Wet Food (Friskies Pate only please!)
– Puppy Pads
– Pine Litter
– Cat Toys
– Bleach and Laundry Detergent

For more information, or if you have any questions, flip us a message!!

Don’t forget we have our Summer Clear-out Event happening now! You can save AND help animals in need ~ it’s a WIN – WIN!!!

Autumn, Mickey and Chicken

August  21st. Update  on  Autumn, Mickey and  Chicken.  They are doing amazingly well and have made a full recovery.

Autumn, Mickey and Chicken are improving each day with treatment, good food and love…Their Upper Respiratory infection is resolving.



Update  on Nellie the little girl who had the encounter with a Porcupine. She is doing much better with removal of quills and treatment with antibiotics.

My daughter and I love to volunteer for @fixed_fur_life whenever we can! The Strut for Strays was always so much fun, but it was cancelled this year due to Covid 19. And I know it is a huge hit on @fixed_fur_life ! They would of lost at least $50,000 !!! Maybe MORE! Cats are still sick and making babies thru this whole pandemic, & life goes on for Darlene and all her wonderful volunteers to HELP THESE CATS & DOGS!

I just received a brand new shipment of the coir dog and cat door mats – cause they all sold out way back! Sooo, my idea is for every mat we sell, we will donate $10 to @fixed_fur_life!! They will be selling for $28!

What do you all think?! Can you help me spread the word?! I know there are lots of animal lovers out there like myself!! Would you mind helping me spread the word like tagging, loving, sharing doing whatever you can to help Darlene and @fixed_fur_life!! And by the way, these mats are ADORABLE!! 🐈 🐕❤️😊
