Pom Rescue was set up by Lisa Pauls. The following
report from Lisa was first printed in the February 2001
Pomeranian Club of Canada Newsletter:
times I find myself quite over whelmed with it all! I have
had to learn a lot and do a lot of digging. At this point, I
have done the following:
Contacted Saskatoon's local Shelter:
be working with them. When a Pom comes in to them they will let
me know, and I have offered to post pictures of any candidates
on the PCOC web site. Already, there has been a little Pom
there. She is 7 years old, and we were able to find her a home.
The director suggested it was best to keep her in their
facility. If she ended up that no home could be found for her
and her date to be put down came up, then she would be released
to me to foster. Our Shelter here is also trying to set
something up with Petland, and have dogs adopted out through the
pet store as well... This would open up a lot of helpful
doors... I think!
Set up a Vet Contact:
I have talked with my own vet, and for the Rescue in my area
will he will help out for cost.
Begun Fund Raising Activities:
We have been getting the word out for donations of ANY KIND!! I
will be having an on going Silent Auction Table traveling
with me to shows that I'm able to set up at. This is planned to
be, so whatever is leftover, just goes on to the next show. So
please remember, donations are more than welcome. Many THANKS to
those who have already donated.
Set up a Rescue Account:
I have also set up a Rescue Account, cheques must be signed by
both myself and our President, Chris Heartz. I will be sending
in monthly statements to the Treasurer and a report to the
Newsletter each issue.
Started Rescue Networking:
I have also been getting information from other rescue groups,
and learning how they do things. I have been in contact with a
wonderful lady that does Rescue in the USA, and she had some
WONDERFUL ideas. She will be helping me to get a contract
written up etc.
What I need the most, at this point, is help from other members
of the PCOC.
volunteers to be a rescue contact for your area. I have already
had a few inquires from people looking to adopt, but they have
been on either side of the country. To make this work, we have
to have contacts across Canada. We are also looking for others
that would be able to volunteer fostering if needed. We will
need transportation volunteers. We will be getting in contact
with truck driving companies to see if some of them would help
to transport a little buddy when needed. Anyway you can help out
would be greatly appreciated!
that Pom Rescue is VERY important. You don't need to look any
further than the Sept/2000 CKC section. There were 305 litters
registered with the CKC and 695 individual puppy
registrations!!! Pomeranians are the seconded highest in the Toy
Group. These are just the registered ones we have NO count on
the unregistered! All of us who breed have to be prepared, to
take responsibility for the little ones we bring into the
world...You never know, it maybe a Pom that YOU bred that ends
up in a shelter. I know everyone's life is hectic and we can't
always donate a lot of time or space...but it can also be just
as simple as making a few phone calls, donating towels and
bedding!! The list can go on and on, we will never have TOO many
hands. Please help me...help the little ones that can't speak
you know of a Pom that needs to be rescued, or would like to
adopt a Pomeranian that has been rescued, please contact the
Rescue Rep for you region
or you can contact our webmaster
note that US Inquiries cannot be serviced from Canada.
