Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is DunRoamin' Stray and Rescue?

DunRoamin' Stray and Rescue is a group of like-minded individuals who have banded together to help abandoned, abused, neglected and/or injured strays in our local communities. We attempt to help those who might otherwise "slip through the cracks" of the current shelter system.

2. Where is DunRoamin' located?

DunRoamin' Stray and Rescue does not have a building, but currently rents a space in Riverbank, NB. The large majority of our strays live in foster homes in communities between Perth-Andover and Fredericton, NB.

3. How do I get in touch with DunRoamin' Stray and Rescue?

We can be reached by phone, mail, e-mail and on FaceBook. Please go to our Contact Us page.

4. Several cats have been dropped off at my farm in the past few months. I'm happy to feed them and keep them safe, and I know that they should be spayed and neutered before they can contribute to the growing pet overpopulation problem, but I simply cannot afford to pay for so many surgeries. Is there any way you can help?

An application form has been developed to objectively and justly administer aid to individuals in need. Assistance will be determined on a case-by-case basis, and only as time and funds allow. Please contact us to request an application form. Individuals may apply for assistance if the following criteria are met:

1. The applicant must be willing to contribute a minimum of 50% of the expected medical costs associated with spaying/neutering the stray in question.

2. The applicant must also be willing to help DunRoamin’ raise funds to help cover the remaining 50% of the costs incurred. You will be asked to help sell raffle tickets, attend public events such as local trade shows, bake sales, flea markets, etc.

3. The applicant must find appropriate housing for the stray in question, particularly for the first week after the spay/neuter surgery. Food may be provided by DunRoamin’ in some circumstances, as supplies allow.

5. I am not currently in a position to help financially, but want to contribute as much as I'm able. Are there any other ways I can help?

There are innumerable ways to help strays wherever they may be. Your time may be your greatest gift. For example, you can volunteer at our events, hold your own fundraiser (ie: raffles, penny drives, bake sales, recycling drives, etc), donate used items such as towels and blankets, build shelters for ferals, etc. Please check out our Volunteering page, our Fostering page and our How To Help page for more information. We're limited only by our imaginations!

6. Are you able to save all of the injured or sick strays that come to you?

Unfortunately, we are not able to save all the strays brought to us.    Sometimes, their injuries are too severe, or their disease has progressed too far. 

In 2008, we lost ten strays:  nine cats,  Fester, One-Eyed Jake, Reuben,  Tenacious D, Zane, Epic, Detour, Rhoan amd Clancy.  One puppy did not survive.  His name was Dexter.

In 2009, we lost five strays:  one kitten, Armani, one cat, J.R., and three puppies, Minnow, Juliet and Farley.

In 2010, we lost ten strays:  seven kittens:  Tequila, Cyrus, Mikey, Popsicle, Oakland, Fiasco and Alexandra; one cat:  Maris,  one dog:  Dixon, and one puppy, Flanders.

In 2011, we have lost eight strays:  three cats, Tillman, Pawwsey and Beatrice, and five kittens, Norma, Hendrix, Rita, Carey and Jiffy.

In spite of this sadness, we are all very grateful that they were brought to us so that in their last hours they could be warm, pain-free, cuddled and loved.  Thanks to everyone who made this possible.
