The average donation is $25, which is a pretty affordable amount.
When just eight people make that average $25 donation, we can pay to neuter a male cat. When twelve people make it, we can spay a female cat.
It is estimated that there are tens of thousands of homeless cats and kittens freezing and starving on the streets of our province.
Help us cut down on the suffering by getting to the root of the problem.
|HEAVENLY CREATURES' OFFICE
Please note: We have limited hours for now (as of May 2018) owing to ongoing renovations but should be back to being open longer soon. Until then, other than Tuesday evenings from six p.m. to nine p.m., our office is open by appointment only.
Do you have a donation, volunteer application, or adoption application to get to us?
Drop by our office, 3-7 Cashin Avenue
(we're on the corner of Mundy Pond Rd and we're in the same building as Big Al's and Aquarium 101)
In the meantime, if you need to drop something off and our office isn’t open, applications and pet food items can also be left at our thrift store; our thrift store is in the same building, just around the front.
The store is open from ten a.m. to six p.m. on Saturdays, noon to six p.m. on Monday and Tuesday, as well as noon to four Wednesday through Friday.

Heavenly Creatures' 2nd Annual Spring Fair is fast approaching. Last year's event was a huge success and we can't wait for this year's!
WHEN: Saturday, June 9th, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
WHERE: The Curling Club (aka The Remax Centre), 135 Mayor Ave., St. John's.
Our Spring Fair will have something for everyone! Like last year, it will be a combination of a craft fair/fleamarket rolled into one and will be pet and family friendly. Half of the 14, 000 square feet will contain our fleamarket items while the other half contains 45 vendors selling everything from baked goods to bath bombs.
We hope you'll be able to attend and if you know anyone who would like to have a table at our event, please pass along the info (we have a few spaces left). Tables are $50 each, eight feet in length and we can be reached at 739-0077 or by e-mail: email@example.com
Below is the link for the Facebook event group. We'd appreciate it if you'd invite your friends, as FB will no longer allow organizations to mass invite the members of their main FB groups to their events, so we rely on individuals to help us spread the word!
SEEKING USED ITEMS: LET YOUR OLD JUNK HELP HOMELESS ANIMALS!
We are seeking used items for the fleamarket part of the event. We will accept books, plants, children's items, pet items, furniture, CDs, DVDs, knicknacks, electronics (other than old tvs and vcrs), sporting goods, holiday items, purses, hats and boots (just not regular clothes - please save those for our thrift store).
The donation drop-off is the day before the event; we'll be at The Curling Club, 135 Mayor Avenue, on Friday, June 8th, from 12:00 noon to 9 p.m. to accept donations.
If you live in St. John's, or nearby, don't have transportation and need items picked up, please call us at 739-0077 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org (please note that owing to limited storage space, we can only pick up items the night before and we can't pick up furniture).
Our Heavenly Bargains thrift store is located at 3-7 Cashin Avenue; we're in a strip mall that is on the corner of Cashin Ave., and Mundy Pond Rd - we're in the same building as Aquarium 101, Centre City Pharmacy and Big Al's.
Come get a glimpse of our store, check out the bargains, and have a chat with fellow animal lovers!

SUCCESS STORY: SAPPER AKA LUCKY
Does anyone remember Lucky, an emergency rescue from October?
While animal rescue is sometimes emotionally challenging work, when we receive updates like Lucky's, it makes it all worthwhile.
Lucky came to us the second week in October; he was a sick kitty who had been found in the parking lot of a grocery store.
Like many homeless kittens who find themselves on the street trying to survive (either because they've been born there, or have been abandoned by their owners), Lucky was in hard shape.
Lucky would not likely have made it to adulthood on his own. He was covered in lice, was starving, and had a very bad eye.
HC got him to a vet, and then advertised for a foster home for him.
On Oct. 11th, a couple of days after his rescue), Lucky went to live with a woman who agreed to foster him for us.
A little over a month has passed, and what a difference time and TLC make!
Now renamed Sapper, this little guy has gotten much healthier in the last month, and has grown like a weed!
The best news of all is that his foster mom has decided that she has to become his purrmanant mom - she has realized that she can't let him go.
Lucky/Sapper is living proof of why spaying and neutering is so important, why foster parents are angels, and also why animal-rescue groups such as ours are desperately needed in our community.
Sapper is one of the lucky ones (no pun intended), but too many homeless kittens don't get their happy endings.
Please get you cats fixed, and if you have ever thought about fostering or donating, there is no time like the present!
If you are interested in fostering a homeless kitten or cat, please e-mail us at email@example.com
