Today I want to shine a spotlight on the Pawsitive Match Rescue Foundation, a registered Canadian charity, not-for-profit, no-kill dog rescue based right here in beautiful Calgary. They are made up entirely of a dedicated group of volunteers who rescue dogs in Canada, the United States and Mexico. But that is not all they do, they also volunteer with the Alberta Spay and Neuter Task Force. These guys have a great story that’s worth reading.
Why do I think Pawsitive Match is deserving of everybody’s attention? Because I experienced their dedication and passion first hand. They are the foundation that rescued my little guy Milo. I adopted him from PMRF 10 days before Christmas 2014 and he is indisputably my soulmate.
When PMRF rescues dogs, the expenses incurred add up quickly. Transportation, shelter, food, medical… and the list goes on. So donations and volunteers (including being a foster to one or more dogs) are essential to their success.
PMRF is currently running a Calendar Contest until August 15, 2015 and my boy Milo happens to be in it as well. You vote for your favorite dog by donating under its name. The 13 dogs with the most donations will receive a full page feature in their 2016 calendar. PMRFs goal for the calendar this year is to cover the cost of their current medical bills which is $10,300. Tax receipts will be provided for all donations. So please, if you’re able, here is a fun way of making a difference and helping a dog clime the latter to fame at the same time. No amount is too small and any amount is tremendously appreciated.
As mentioned, the entire organization is run by volunteers, without them none of this would be possible. If you have some time to spare and are interested in helping these guys out, have a look at their Volunteer page. There are a crazy amount of opportunities.
Please give them a chance and check them out. You never know, you just might find YOUR Pawsitive Match.
