About the Greater Animal Rescue Society
The Greater Edmonton Animal Rescue Society (GEARS) was formed in 2013 to help injured, abandoned, unwanted, and homeless animals in the Edmonton area. Compassion motivates us to help, heal, and alleviate the pain of the animals we encounter. GEARS is a non-profit organization that relies on a network of volunteers and foster homes working together to give companion animals a second chance at their forever family. With high standards of practice and charitable status, GEARS sets an example in the community, for companion animal welfare and rescue.
About Little Cats Lost
Little Cats Lost (Trap-Neuter-Return) Society is made up of a small group of compassionate, intelligent, volunteers that believe in the humane treatment of cats, owned or un-owned. Their mission is to humanely reduce euthanasia and the growth rates of feral cat colonies by preventing their breeding cycles through spay/neuter practices, while educating the public on the merits of a Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program in our community. Their choice to focus on the ever-growing, free-roaming cat population was born out of the need to educate residents on a non-lethal solution to reducing the feral/stray population in their neighbourhoods.
