FIP Treatment Update

FIP, Feline Infectious Peritonitis, was previously considered a death sentence to cats, with effective medication being inaccessible to vets and owners. Owners had to go through "illegal" channels to purchase life saving drugs for their beloved cats. In Canada, we now have legal access to the medication! Please see below links for more information.

If you have a cat with suspected FIP, please discuss treatment options with your vet. If you would like a second set of eyes, don't hesitate to contact us!

Join us at Milner Downs Equestrian Center to enjoy a day of equestrian show jumping & meet some puppies!

Rescue Evacuation Update:


Four months ago, friends of ours in Williams Lake were told about an abandoned home near 100 Mile House where it was suspected that people had abandoned cats. Temperatures were hitting as low as -35 and many animals were suffering and dying. We were told that local support was unavailable and numerous requests had previously been made but had not been answered. Fortunately our friends in the local First Nations community of Williams Lake were eager to help and acted immediately. Traps were set and have been regularly monitored since. Teams have now visited the area for almost 9 weeks, successfully gathering a group of 39 cats and kittens; all of which have now travelled to us. 9 travelled to our incredible friends @boundarybayhelpinghands. The site is still being checked regularly. It appears that we have been able to get all of the remaining cats at the site and none have been seen in the last couple weeks. We loaded the returning trucks with food and supplies for vulnerable animals in the Williams Lake and 100 Mile areas. 
Mountainside, its volunteers and its fosters are working vigilantly to get medical care for the cats that are currently with us. All need and are getting medical care including fixing, deflea/deworm medications, vaccines, microchips, rabies vaccines, wound care and specialized skin/allergy care.  

We are so very thankful for all of the volunteers that stepped up to make this happen! We simply could not do it without you. #ittakesavillage  Your hard work, dedication and love for animals is what brings light to the challenging world of rescue.

Within this group, we dealt with a myriad of different health and medical issues. But for this one special boy we are URGENTLY calling out for help. Beta, an incredibly sweet and gentle large male cat has been diagnosed with hip dyplasia (less common in cats than dogs but occurs nonetheless) and will need surgery on BOTH hips; done one hip at a time, the surgical cost alone is almost $5,000 ($2384.44 per hip is the estimate below). The surgery is expensive and the recovery time lengthy and daunting. But the prognosis is very good very such a young and otherwise healthy boy. While some would criticize for spending so much on a cat, this incredible survivor has been through so much and his gentle affectionate demeanour brings so much love and joy to his family - we will not even consider the alternative. BETA deserves our help and support. He is currently in our care and will remain so through the surgery and the recovery process. We NEED your help to get this done right away so he does not have to live in discomfort or pain. PLEASE PLEASE donate, share and spread the word. Give our loving boy the new life he so much deserves.
