Miata, arrived at Animatch from SPA – Mauricie where she was dropped off because she required surgery as a result of an injury. Miata needed TPLO surgery (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy) on her knee to repair a torn cruciate ligament. In fact she needed surgery on both legs. Miata has had her first surgery and after she recuperates, she will undergo the second. Cost of surgery is estimated at approximately $3,500. All who have met Miata feel that she deserves a chance at a pain free life. Helping dogs like Miata only happens through the generous hearts of people who donate when dogs require our help. However large or small your donation, Miata needs your help.
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.
