Vulcan Baggers Association Fundraiser for Rmar
August 09, 2012
"We held our group dinner at the Iron Goat Pub and Grill in Canmore, where the staff and menu were outstanding in every regard. We sold tickets and held a raffle for the many great door prizes that were donated by very generous vendors, such as Kawasaki and ROK™ and donated all of our proceeds to the Rocky Mountain Animal Rescue. All told, we raised $680.00 for an outstanding local charity, whose leadership was on hand to gratefully accept our donation. It was a first class dinner and fundraiser, and we always enjoy leaving the communities in which we gather a better place for us having been there."
Rufo comes to Canada
Monday, April 16, 2012
Above is a photo of Rufo getting ready to board the plane owned by Colleen and Rick Stewart and head to his forever home in Canada along with their two smaller dogs. They adopted the Cocker mix from the SPCA a couple of years ago. The fourth dog ready to board is Tanner, a really old and big lab who was a rescued by Colleen and Rick. After a connection in Calgary with Rory O'Neill of Rocky Mountain Animal Rescue, Tanner went on to her forever home. Angels…every one of them! Thanks so much Colleen, Rick and Rory.
We thought you might enjoy hearing the news from Colleen about the trip.
"Just a quick note to let you know all the doggies made it here to Canada. It was a very emotional home coming. Ruffo and Tanner's families, as well as Rory were there to meet us. Let me tell you, what a love festival! These families were beautiful and they were so immediately loving and caring to there new family members. As a matter of fact a news camera was there as well to capture some of Canada's newest citizens and tell the story of the Dog's Tails of Mexico to Canada."
And we also heard from Rory (Rocky Mountain Animal Rescue) about the rescues. Rory met Amy Waterhouse, a veterinarian, who submitted an adoption application for Rufo. Turns out Amy is the best vet ever, according to Rory, and she is happy to report that Rufo is now with this loving family. And through Amy and her clinic, Tanner found a home with Melody, a vet tech there. Happy endings all around!

Helping Little Dogs, To Canada With Love
Tuesday, July 20, 2010
On Tuesday July 20th, 11 dogs from California animal shelters will board a plane to Calgary, Alberta for a new life in Canada.
DeAnn Turner, Lesley Bloomer, Jennifer Boydstun and Jill Freeland met as volunteers for DAWG (Dog Adoption Welfare Group) in Santa Barbara. They combined resources to transport small dogs from high-density, high-kill shelters in the Los Angeles area to Calgary where there is a shortage of small, adoptable dogs.
Turner formed a relationship with Rory O'Neill, founder of Rocky Mountain Animal Rescue in Canada, where qualified adopters eagerly await the arrival of their petite new pets.

"Dogs have always been a part of my life, so I was excited when I arrived at the Chief Chiniki restaurant on the Stoney Nakoda First Nation Oct. 15. Dog behaviourist and trainer Rory O'Neill had agreed to meet with me and let me accompany her on a canine rescue mission.
Based out of Canmore, O'Neill runs the Rocky Mountain Animal Rescue, and visits the Stoney Nakoda First Nation often to find and rescue stray and abandoned dogs wandering the lonely landscape."

Two chihuahuas, a Pomeranian mix, a terrier mix, a toy poodle and a Jack Russell mix have been plucked off the streets of Tijuana, and spent the past few months being rehabilitated and vaccinated by an animal shelter in southern California.
