Even at Christmas, some people can still find time to be cruel to animals. When a woman went to the dumpster behind her building, amidst all the bags of garbage, she heard a frantic cry for help. Tearing open the bag, she found a beautiful orange ball of fur inside.  Bedraggled and helpless, someone had left this poor little ten week old kitten to die of cold and starvation. 


How could someone do this at Christmas or for that matter at any time of year?  Now warm and safe, as we search for a permanent loving family for him, we need to provide him with food, shelter and veterinary care.   Not only does this cute little guy need your help, but we need to work harder to track down and punishh those criminals responsible, because you and I are all that stand between animals and those who want to harm them.

Dubbed, "Rudolph" after his namesake who led Santa and his reindeer to safety bringing toys and happiness to children around the world, "Rudolph" is a beacon of hope for other animals just like him, orphaned, abandoned and alone in the night. Your kindness and your donations are hard at work caring for orphans of the night like "Rudolph" and with your help The Humane Society of Canada can help even more animals during this Christmas Season and the Holidays.
