What do you get the animal lover on your Christmas list?
How about The Gift Of Life!
*** This was Bertie (aka Barrett) the day we found him in his bare cage at a local pound. Bertie would have been killed for no other reason than lack of a temporary place to stay, he would have lost his life before he turned a year old for the "crime" of being homeless . Bertie got a second chance because of the kind donors and foster parents who made it possible for us to rescue him, and other impounded animals like him.
How about doing something a little differently this year by giving a gift that is sure to make them smile, and is sure to make a difference: The Gift Of Life!
Who needs another bathrobe, or pair of socks? Why not send a gift donation and help save a homeless animal's life instead?
We'll send the person of your choice a personalized Christmas Card confirming your donation to Heavenly Creatures on their behalf, while you will receive a tax receipt.
You can make the donation through the Gift of Life PayPal button above, or through e-mail money transfer: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also donate through our office: 3-7 Cashin Avenue. Call 739-0077 for office hours and more details.
Please don't forget Newfoundland-Labrador's four-legged homeless this Christmas!

FOUND CAT IN MUNDY POND AREA
CHRISTMAS FOSTER HOMES NEEDED!
There's No Place Like A Foster Home For The Holidays.
Can't adopt but still want to help? Why not foster a cat or dog?
Heavenly Creatures is desperately trying to save a number of homeless kittens, cats, puppies, and dogs from needless euthanasia before Christmas.
Many of our foster parents are busy or away during Christmas making it very difficult for us to find space for animals in need, and temporary places for current foster animals over the holidays.
Are you in town for Christmas? Do you have space in your heart and home to for a furry orphan?
We provide all vet care and supplies - you provide the love! It's a wonderful and rewarding way to help our furry friends in need.
Heavenly Creatures relies on foster care in order to rescue ANY AND ALL of our animals. More foster homes means more homeless animals can be saved.
Please call 739-0077 for more details.
