Help Yukon strays get vet care!

The Mae Bachur Animal Shelter in Whitehorse has had a tough year; fundraising events fell short of what we needed, senior staff turned over, and a court case drained resources. We have 10 animals that desperately need vet attention, but we owe thousands in vet bills already. Can you help us?

We take in animals from all across the territory. We are 75% funded by fundraisers, donations and animal adoption fees. The animal adoption fees mostly go to pay the vet bills for neutering/ spaying and vaccinating them, and don’t cover other costs related to feeding, care, and keeping the doors open 5 days a week. We perform an essential service in the North, taking in strays from throughout the Territory. Can you help us pay the vet bills and keep the doors open for the animals?

Tune in to CKRW the RUSH for Weekly Pet Reports...Thanks to the CKRW for providing Air time for this weekly segment.
