Cat and Dog Mats

From the owners of Master Bedroom and Layered Living!

Buy Locally!

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!! 🐈 🐕❤️😊

Sprinkles

After many months of treatment and surgeries our girl has made a tremendous recovery. She was Spayed and has now gone onto her new home!

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.

We Need You!

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

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
