Heart of Niagara Animal Rescue took in its first dog rescues recently, adoptions are underway and the organization is growing and needs more volunteers. The public is invited to attend a volunteer/foster meeting this Tuesday, April 16, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Lewiston Public Library (Community Room), 305 S. Eighth St.
Volunteer opportunities to help with current and future fundraising programs, including upcoming events already scheduled and to be planned, will be discussed. Heart of Niagara's directors, along with Dr. Kristen Ruest of The Village Vet of Lewiston, will be in attendance to answer questions about fostering, animal care and the many volunteer opportunities that are needed.
Heart of Niagara Animal Rescue is a newly organized, nonprofit companion animal rescue based in Niagara County. Heart of Niagara's mission is to protect the health and welfare of abandoned, unwanted and homeless animals. The organization's goal is to provide these rescued animals with shelter, food and medical care until a loving adoptive family can be found.
The rescue is in need of the following donated items: Purina Puppy Chow and Dog Chow, large and medium kennels/crates, and blankets. Heart of Niagara's complete "wish list" of needed items is available on its website. If you would like to donate any of these items, or if you are able to foster an animal, call 716-345-7129.
