We believe animals do best when individually fostered, so we need volunteers who can take animals into their homes on a temporary basis. We provide the bedding, food and any required medication, and you provide the love and care.  Fostering can be short-term or long-term, depending upon the animal and its needs. Please contact us at if you would like to help.


An important part of our work at Pro Animal Melaque is to find long term homes for our rescued animals. If you can provide a good home to one of our rescuees, please contact us via Email ( or Facebook and let us know if you are looking for a dog or cat, and if you have any specific requirements (e.g. small or large). We will get back to you as soon as we can and let you know which animals are available at the time.


Material donations

We welcome your donations of dog or cat food, medication, bedding, toys, and many other things that our rescued animals need. Contact us for a specific list of items or if you have something you think we could use. You could also speak to your local vet to see if they have anything that could be passed on to our group.

Donate your time

We often need volunteers to physically help with our activities. You can donate your time by transporting sick animals to their veterinary appointments, talking to friends and neighbours about fostering or adopting animals, putting up flyers, or by helping out at one of our fundraisers. Please contact us if you would like to help.

Monetary donations

Although Pro Animal Melaque does not have paid staff, we do rely upon donations and fundraisers to cover our operating expenses, such as utilities, food, medicine, and veterinary care. We accept donations in the form of cash or e-Transfer (please contact us if you wish to donate this way), or you can donate through Paypal.


Pro Animal Melaque relies on generous donations and fundraising events in order to cover the costs of achieving our mission.

Below are a list of the various fundraising events we organize throughout the year. One way you can help our cause is by coming to our events, and inviting your friends and neighbours.


Our first bike-athon was held in 2014, and it quickly became our largest fundraiser of the year. Each January we offer a fun ride with fellow supporters, offering refreshments during and after the route. In conjunction with the bike-athon, we raffle a brand new bike each year. This event is loads of fun and each participant receives an event T-shirt.

Bingo & Silent Auction

Almost everyone loves Bingo & almost everyone shows up to play! The venue is packed with friendly faces, lots of Bingo cards, drinks, food and good spirits to support our cause. We play many games for prizes, offer a variety of door prizes and have a fantastic silent auction. Watch for this fundraiser in December. Dates will be posted here.

Cribbage & Silent Auction

Held in February each year, this is a popular event! Ticket sales are limited to 80 people. The top four players receive prizes donated by local businesses. You don't have to play cribbage, but can join in the silent auction or our 50/50 raffle for a selection of great gifts donated by people and businesses in our area. Dates will be posted here.
