We are saddened to announce the passing of Pound Rescue’s founder and president Dr. Gabriele Barrie. Gabi, as most knew her, started Pound Rescue in 1994. She was able to implement a TNR (trap, neuter/spay, return) program in Okotoks at that time and eliminated the stray cat problem for over 20 yrs. Her contribution to [...]
It’s that time of year and we have many feral colonies needing good thick quilts, blankets, or sleeping bags. Please PM us or text 403-816-0886 or drop off at Pet Planet in Okotoks if you have any to spare to donate. Please help.
Sadly we are overcapacity and can not take in anymore cats/kittens. Without fosters and adoptions we can not help. We suggest that you try larger rescues as they have facilities to house cats/kittens. We, as a society, need to help these animals. Please if you can keep the cat, please do so. Put out an [...]

Happiness is fostering, as Ela's smile tells you. And she does not just foster pups... We need foster homes for all ages and kinds. We currently have 4 dogs that we have no place to put due to the high demand we have for foster homes. Please consider filling out a foster application.
A huge and special shout-out to the students of Bishop O'Byrne High School in Shawnessy and their construction teacher Scott Tkachuk for building these dog houses for us, to go to places most needed. Just look at this great bunch of young men and women! All of you, have a wonderful Christmas.
Our "A" group of kittens are now up for adoption. Please note that we adopt bonded siblings out in groups of 2 or 3 only.
We adopt kittens out in pairs only. Where one is, goes the other. They play together, sleep together, eat together and love their human, together. Some, those who do not really understand cats, or do not know much about them, think this is kind of a sales pitch of ours to adopt out more cats. [...]
Another great announcement, Zuzu has been officially adopted. Thank you so much to her new family, who have opened their home and lives to this new addition. We are so happy for you Zuzu.
