Animal Shelter Appreciation Week

Each year, starting the first Sunday of November, National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week is recognized. This initiative was introduced by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). Citizens in communities all over the world are asked to take a closer look at the valuable role their local animal shelter plays in enhancing the quality of life in their community.

The Forget Me Not Cat Sanctuary is proud to serve the needs of local felines, but we can’t do it without the support of our community’s residents.

Organizations like our Sanctuary offer many services to the animals in our care including permanent housing, extensive medical care, an adoption centre, and providing awareness of responsible pet ownership including the importance of spaying and neutering pets.

How can you help the Forget Me Not Cat Sanctuary? There are many ways to help including:

- Offer a monetary donation or donating needed supplies
- Spread the word about the importance of responsible pet ownership, including
spaying and neutering
- Volunteer your time
- Report animal cruelty and neglect that you encounter in your community
- Choose your next pet from among the many cats being cared for at the Forget Me Not Cat Sanctuary. We have plenty of wonderful cats waiting for a wonderful forever home.

We invite everyone to join us in celebrating Animal Shelter Appreciation Week by finding ways you can help out in your community.

  3. Just took some time to read through this entire blog, look at the incredible photos, and watch the stunning videos. As Edmontonians we are very proud that something like this exists to help unwanted animals. Obviously they wanted and loved and cared for here. We'll definitely check back and follow this blog as we really enjoyed it. Best wishes to everyone involved in this amazing facility.
