The current global climate has brought hardship and uncertainty to so many, with shelters and rescues being no exception.  Concerns have been voiced about the health of our pets, clients, visitors, staff and volunteers.  We have taken protective measures against COVID-19, but we are still seeing a direct impact from the virus on our adoption and surrender rates due to the instability it has caused.  Please rest assured that we are following all guidelines to keep everyone safe during this time.

DunRoamin’ is grateful for all the support we receive from our communities.  We have taken in more than 150 sick, injured, abused, neglected and/or abandoned strays so far this year and expect many more, especially since kitten season is on the horizon.  Ridge, a beautiful grey and white five-year old cat is a good example of someone who needed help he would most likely not receive anywhere else.  He came to us with frost-bitten ears which have begun to fall off, he was emaciated, starving, full of burdocks, matted and he had upper respiratory infection to the degree that his eyes were gummed shut. On top of all that, he tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). We’re hoping he’ll be okay, but he has a battle ahead of him.  With the care of the staff at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic, he’s in the best place possible.  He is just one example - you can see him and many others on our Adopt A Cat page.

In order to keep helping dogs and cats like Ridge who have no other option for life, as well as to ensure that we can keep offering essential low-income and community cat spay/neuter programs, we rely on ongoing support from our donors, especially during times like these.   Consumable items such as laundry detergent, bleach, dish soap, litter, dry and canned cat and dog food, etc, are very much appreciated.  Financial donations are crucial to provide essential medication, surgery, food and supplies to care for the rescues who rely on us.  We appreciate all donations - Co-Op money, Canadian Tire money, gift cards and of course cash donations, cheques and on-line donations through Canada Helps.  We also accept e-transfers when available.  While we are all staying close to home and practising social distancing, please take some time to check out our website at www.dunroaminstrayandrescue.com (as well as our Facebook and Instagram pages) and meet some of these cats and dogs who require our help.  They are very grateful for your generous support, as are we.

$9951!

spay/neuter many more cats who would otherwise have added to the already large number of homeless or unwanted cats. 

We are so grateful for the overwhelming support for this program that allows so many cats and dogs to be spayed/neutered.   Each and every one makes a huge difference.
Thank you all who donate!

A very heartfelt thank you to Dr Monteith at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic for her ongoing support and assistance in helping spay and neuter cats in our communities who would otherwise contribute to the large number of beautiful unowned/uncared for cats

This website is dedicated to the volunteers and supporters who consistently go above and beyond to help abandoned, abused, neglected, sick and injured strays in our communities.  This includes donors, fund raisers, litter scoopers, vet staff, drivers, cuddlers, adopters, fosters and many others who routinely give freely of their time, abilities and resources to help those animals less fortunate. 

We'd also like to dedicate this new site to Susan and Lauren Crompton, the originators of DunRoamin's first official website, www.bekindtogodscreatures.com, which was instrumental in bringing DunRoamin' to the attention of others and helping to educate and pass on our message of the requirement for spaying and neutering our pets so that they do not contribute to the already overwhelming number of homeless animals. 

Our message is the same – “Be kind to God's creatures.”

"DunRoamin'" means just that:  our strays are all done roaming, are safe at last and will finally receive the medical care, attention and the family they deserve.

DunRoamin's mandate is to help those strays who have no one to care for them - the ones who are abandoned, abused, injured, neglected and have no other alternative for life. We cannot accept healthy animals, as we would very quickly have no room for the ones who truly need us - the ones who would most likely "fall through the cracks" of our current system.

We focus on three main aspects:

Rescue:  helping those strays who are injured, neglected, sick, etc and have no one to care for them. We also try to help those who are too sick, too injured or too young to survive in a normal shelter setting;

Treatment:  providing food, medication, surgery, etc to all rescued animals as required. This also includes helping them to find foster and permanent homes, and ensuring they have the life they deserve which is safe, secure and free of fear; and

Education:  we endeavour to set an inspiring example. We believe animals are deserving of our care and respect. Through our responsible guardianship of the pet, by ensuring they are spayed or neutered, by providing briefings, handouts, flyers, newspaper articles, etc, we try to encourage people to treat all animals with compassion and respect. Our main target group is the younger generation so that they will do better by animals, as hopefully we have improved upon their treatment through the advancements since our parents' and grandparents' generations.
