The Rainbow Bridge Fund is a registered non-profit charitable organization that has been set up with the primary objective of rehabilitating and rehoming stray dogs and cats.
A major secondary objective of the fund is to become involved in education of the community in areas of animal welfare. Veterinary practices are constant recipients of unwanted animals. This happens because of owners relinquishing animals they cannot afford to treat, because the public brings strays to us, and because many are literally ‘dumped on our doorstep’.
The fact that these animals are frequently sick or injured compounds the dilemma of what to do with them. Unfortunately, many vets have to put financial considerations first, and the animals are euthanased. No veterinarian or veterinary nurse ever wants to do this.
The aim of the Rainbow Bridge Fund is to create a viable alternative to this unnecessary loss of life, and furthermore, to ensure that these strays become cherished and healthy pets who will never be faced with the prospect of a ‘financial’ compromise of health, or life, for the rest of their lives.
We are always looking for sponsors and volunteers to help with caring for the stray animals, fund-raising, advertising and spreading the word about homeless strays as far and wide as we can, to increase their chances of getting “forever-homes”.
