COLD WEATHER DISTRESS EMERGENCY NUMBER: 587-400-5582

Our Mission

In January 2020, a stray, distressed cat was spotted trying to get warm on a sewer grate in west Edmonton in -28° weather. The ensuing rescue took two days but the cat was finally caught and taken to the Edmonton Animal Care and Control Centre.  It was cared for and found to be lost.  It was reunited with its owner after having been out on the street for three months.

Our group started after the above incident and a Facebook page was set up to have an organized response to such incidents.  We wanted to cut down the time to catch such animals in distress and, if possible, try to prevent cats and other domestic animals from being placed in such precarious and life-threatening situations.

Our members on Facebook have grown to over 6,800 as of August 2023 with a very active core of dedicated and wonderful volunteers who have been involved in building feral cat houses for the winter, taking in distressed animals, raising money and getting them veterinary care, attempting to find their owners and reuniting them, and for some finding forever homes since they were abandoned or never had an owner.

We are proud to say that we have helped since our inception over 900 animals, provided veterinary care for many and helped over 500 get back home or to a new home.  Our members have been involved in searches/rescues of not only cats but dogs, birds and rabbits.
