Miata, a very docile Lab-x, arrived at Animatch from SPA – Mauricie with a knee that needs immediate attention. She was injured in February and has been in pain since that time. Miata needs TPLO surgery (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy) on her knee to repair a torn cruciate ligament. Cost of surgery is estimated at over $4,000. 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 now.
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.
