Momma plus four! A success story

Submitted by EARS volunteer Brenda Bunn of Peterborough, Ontario

As a volunteer of UAN, I was deployed to Montreal in December 2008 for what we refer to as bust #3 (bust #1 and #2 were in September and October 2008). As the founder of LOYAL Rescue, I ended up taking 23 dogs into my group's care. Of the 23, 22 have since been released by the mill and six pups were born into rescue (we took two pregnant dogs). We now have 28 dogs up for adoption, and three have already been placed.

Why we do this

Submitted by EARS volunteer June Towler of Bradford, Ontario

"...and the cycle will continue."

That is how EARS volunteer Margaret Blackman finished yesterday's blog before she said sad farewells to the dogs and the rest of the volunteer crew. So the cycle goes on and I have been asked to continue the blog before I, too, go home.

The cycle continues

Submitted by EARS volunteer Margaret Blackman of Oshawa, Ontario

There is a cycle to any deployment. First there is the adrenaline rush as you deploy, then the heartache as you see the destruction, or in this case, the terrible condition of the animals. Next comes the joyous moments as each animal makes their personal breakthroughs and we get to know the individual personalities of each one.

Day four at the shelter

Submitted by EARS volunteer Margaret Blackman of Oshawa, Ontario

Today was about one of the things UAN volunteers do best: care and comfort the animals. No vets, no groomers, no poking and prodding of furry bodies, just Emergency Animal Rescue Service (EARS) volunteers and their charges. Feeding, cleaning and socialization were the watch words of today.
