Welcome to Dorothy's Pets in Need
Dorothy's Pets in Need is a no-kill feline rescue located in River Bourgeois, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. We run a non profit shelter for abandoned/stray cats as well as a spay/neuter assistance program for low income individuals who require financial assistance to have their dog or cat spayed or neutered. Dorothy's Pets in Need was established in April 2007 and to date has assisted in the rescue of 82 cats/kittens.
Our shelter and spay/neuter assistance program is funded largely by donations from individuals and businesses in Richmond County (and surrounding areas), as well we hold various fundraisers to assist with the costs to run the shelter and to continue offering the spay/neuter assistance program.
We are registered with the Registry of Joint Stock. An inspector from the SPCA in Halifax investigated our building prior to being registered and it was also determined by the inspector the number of animals that we were permitted to house. The cats are provided with clean housing, have access to water and dry food at all times and are checked on by volunteers multiple times per day.
