RABBIT RESCUE PROJECT
The TRACS Rabbit Rescue program which began in 2008 continues with just under 350 rabbits still in our care. We provide veterinary care, food, and shelter in safe sanctuaries which are run solely by volunteers. Another integral part of our team are a number of local veterinarians, specializing in exotic animals, to keep the bunnies healthy and numerous local stores who keep our bunnies well stocked with greens.
MISCELLANEOUS ANIMAL RESCUE PROGRAM
Sometimes a companion animal is the “best friend” who provides a loving bond and companionship that would otherwise not exist. Often people do not have the resources to provide for their animals veterinary bills. Our goal is to have the animals seen by a vet ASAP, and although paying for their treatments is beyond our ability, we do what we can so they can move forward in dealing with their pet’s health concern. In other cases animals are abused or abandoned. Often these animals are in need of veterinary care and/or foster care before they can be placed into their new forever home. This program has been put in place to help with providing the best care and support possible in times of need.
OKANAGAN CAT COALITION (OKCC)
TRACS is one of the member partners of the OKCC, along with Okanagan Humane Society, SPCA, and Alley Cats rescue. Working together with veterinarians and concerned citizens the OKCC strives to rescue, trap, spay/neuter and re-home unowned community cats.
ANIMAL COMPASSION PROJECT IN SCHOOL DISTRICT #23
In 2015 we were given the opportunity to speak to a Justice Program class at Rutland Middle School about issues surrounding animal welfare and cruelty. They have asked us back for the new school year.
All TRACS programs are funded by donations, fundraising and grants. A very small portion of these funds are used for administration leaving almost 100% going directly to the animals. Fundraising in the community helps to not only raise dollars but awareness of the animals in plight.
TRACS ongoing fundraisers are:
- Recycling, Bake Sales and Garage Sales
- Flower Baskets for Mother’s Day
- Yearly Rabbits of Kelowna Calendar
- Nature’s Fare 3% Rebate Program – SAVE YOUR RECEIPTS FOR US
- Donations via PayPal to our Sponsor a Rabbit program
- Education days at local pet stores
- Charity collection tin program – donation tins placed at various locations
