How to Help


Cause for Critters is a non-profit society that runs on donations and volunteers. We do not receive any municipal, provincial, or federal funding. For this reason, help is always needed and appreciated. How can you help?


Our shelter pets are cared for every day by volunteers.
We also need volunteers to help with public events and fundraising.


We have several donation boxes set up around town, as well as an online paypal account, or donations can be accepted at the shelter.
We also accept donations of supplies. Please see the donations page for a detailed list.
You can also "Donate a Car" - please see the home page for a link.


All animals who come to CFC, whether surrenders or rescues, must spend time in foster care to recieve medical care (including vaccinations) prior to coming to live at the shelter.  This ensures that they are safe to mix with our shelter population.  (The only exception is surrenders who are able to show up to date medical records).  Fostering is a necessity to allowing our animal intake to run smoothly.
