Santos arrived at Emergency Vet after fracturing his elbow; he required immediate surgery. Sadly, his family were unable to afford the expense. Without surgery life looked pretty grim for Santos. The cost of this pup’s surgery was an unplanned expense and one that Animatch must now cover. Despite our Emergency Fund being depleted, we had to give this pup a chance at a pain free life. Aiding dogs like Santos only happens through the generous hearts of people who donate when dogs require our help. However large or small your donation, your generosity is always appreciated.
Animatch has humble beginnings. It was founded in 1999 by Helen Lacroix, a busy wife and mother. Her grassroots movement started around her kitchen table. Helen credits her parents with instilling in her their love and concern for animals. Today, Animatch boasts a centre with accommodation for a dozen dogs and a dedicated team of volunteers.
