Saving Grace Animal Society was founded in February 2018 as an animal rescue and shelter, operating as a low-scale rescue prior to that. Since it's inception, Saving Grace has been the go-to society for 24/7 emergency calls, rescuing animals all over Alberta and in to Saskatchewan.
Saving Grace houses a shelter in Alix, Alberta, as well as running an off-site sanctuary for farm animals with no place to go and hosts numerous fundraising events throughout the year, working off of an entirely donation-based operating budget.
Since the opening of the shelter in 2018, Saving Grace has successfully adopted out over 350 dogs, organized and completed 9 major rescue missions (each bringing over 100 animals in to care) and made forever homes at the Sanctuary for 18 farm animals to date. They became a registered charity in December 2018, overcoming yet another milestone in just twelve short months of operation.
In 2019, they have adopted out over 200 animals already, being featured on local television and radio for the work they do in animal rescue. The society works with phenomenal trainers and veterinary staff who devote their time to rehabilitate animals in care, ensuring those "unplaceable" animals receive their own "saving grace" with a chance at a new home and a life filled with love.
