Every month we randomly choose a department within the Company to select a charity for donation.
In June, our employees unanimously selected “Bark At The Moon”
Bark at the Moon (BATM) is a local animal rescue that is across southwestern Ontario. BATM was founded to protect animals in need with shelter, proper nutrition, medical care, and training to help the animals thrive into their best selves. Further, this rescue believes in taking the underdogs, the animals that seem to get overlooked time and time again.
Bark at the Moon’s team consists of all volunteers, who work tirelessly and make a huge impact. To date, BATM has saved over 200 animals. They have a partnership in Mexico, “The Doggo Project” which has not only rescued lives, but helped with free spay and neuter clinics for residents of Mexico.
“BATM is very near and dear to my heart as my family is no stranger to rescues. Animals have warmed both my parents and my in-laws homes’ for years. My love for animals and compassion for the ones that need help but have no voice is the reason I support such causes that can give that life line to the little ones that so desperately need it.” ~ Matt, Logistics Coordinator
They are an important rescue founded by Shelby Tilley whose love for standing up for the underdogs turned into a rescue that saves lives.
“ALL BREEDS, NO BORDERS”
History of “Bark At The Moon”
In early 2021, Bark at the Moon Animal Rescue was founded to help provide love, housing, and good health for street dogs, shelter dogs and local dogs in need. We are a non profit, foster based rescue. Our dogs are fostered across southwestern Ontario (Ranging from Toronto, to London). Globally, we have seen an increase in overpopulation in terms of abandoned and neglected animals since the beginning of the pandemic. Shelters both locally and abroad are overflowing with unwanted pets. With overcrowding in shelters, comes unnecessary euthanasia for many very well-rounded, adoptable pets. Our mission is to save as many dogs (and cats) as possible from unwarranted death.
