Along with the hard work of our volunteers, NASAP relies on the generosity of donations to keep the Society growing. Your generous donations help us to provide:
- General medical attention
- Emergency procedures
- Spay and neuter procedures
If you would like to see your donation to go to a specific area, you can choose one of our Special Funds and know that 100% of the money goes towards saving an animal.
NASAP's Special Funds:
Emergency Medical Fund
A number of times per year an animal comes into our care who requires major medical treatment to save his/her life. Recent examples include Billy the cat who developed liver problems, Chester and Simon, two cats who were rescued as strays with limb injuries requiring amputations. Initiation funding for our Emergency Medical Fund, established in the spring of 2002, through a generous grant from PetSmart Charities has allowed us to help these animals and more. One of the best aspects of this fund is that if an animal we take into care gets unexpectedly sick or injured, we do not have to worry about whether saving this animal's life will put the Society in jeopardy as a result. However, replenishment /maintenance of the fund is an ongoing need. Please consider targeting your donation to this fund. 100% of your donation will go to animal care.
Pound Pets Spay/Neuter Fund
In the past year, we have expanded our operations to partner with numerous urban and rural pounds in Northern Alberta in a program that we call the Pound Pets Rescue Program. Through diligent negotiations, diplomacy, and education, we have convinced many of these facilities to strive to become no-kill pounds by taking those homeless animals who are slated for euthanasia into our system and fostering them until adoptive homes can be found. Virtually all of these strays are unaltered, and the cost of these spays and neuters presents an ongoing major expense for NASAP. To keep the Pound Pets Rescue Program viable, we have initiated the Pounds Pets Spay/Neuter Fund. This is a new initiative, again made possible by a generous grant from PetSmart Charities in June 2003. Replenishment/maintenance of the fund is an ongoing need. Please consider targeting your donation to this fund. 100% of your donation will go to pound pet spays and neuters. Remember, every $100 donated saves one life!!
Your donation, for general purpose or for one of our funds, can be in any amount that is affordable to you. Even a modest donation will help us in our efforts to give homeless animals the care they need until we can find them a new loving home. All donations are most gratefully accepted. Norther Alberta Society for Animal Protection is a non-profit organization. All charitable donations are tax deductible (income tax receipts are available for donations greater then $20).
