Polar -- all 110 pounds of him -- is an awesome dog. He arrived from the North with an injured eye which had to be removed. Animatch also discovered that he has a canine tooth that must be extracted which sounds easy enough but it is a complicated surgery. The cost will be about $1,000.00. We are reaching out, yet again, to our supporters for help in covering the amount of this surgery. We are grateful for all donations large or small. And, if you can't contribute at this time, Animatch appreciates you anyways. All we ask is that you share this request.
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.
