Time to order your Fall Bulbs!

Time to order your Fall Bulbs!

As the evenings get cooler, and the garden blooms are starting to look spent, it’s time to think about fall planting for early spring blooms. This will be our second year offering a great selection of fall bulbs for planting. The high quality of bulbs from Van Noort ensures that if you can protect the bulbs from winter critters, you will have a colourful spring!  Every year the selection changes a bit, and I’m quite excited about some of the stunning daffodils and tulips available this season.

Check out all the details and ordering information HERE and make sure to order before the September 25th deadline!

Help Raise Funds with ResQwalk

Help Raise Funds with ResQwalk Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestmail

Do you walk, run, or bike?

Whether it’s everyday or once in a while…you can help!

We are excited to announce that we are fundraising with ResQwalk. It’s a simple concept and a great way for you to help us raise money for the rescue by doing something you already are doing. There is no cost to you, and by participating you are helping Ninth Life rescue and care for more cats and get them healthy and into forever homes.

How does it work? 

Download the app for your iPhone or Android device.

Select Ninth Life Cat Rescue as the organization you would like to support.

Any time you go for a walk, jog, run or bike ride, open the app and start tracking.

Every kilometre adds up and at the end of every month ResQwalk will donate to our organization. It’s that easy!

Download ResQwalk on Android

Download ResQwalk on iPhone

A Few More Details

Check out the ResQwalk main FAQ page for answers to most common questions.

There is no cost to Ninth Life or to participants walking on our behalf. The app uses GPS to track your distance moved, not your data plan.

Every month a pool of corporate sponsors donate and the money is divided to participating animal welfare charities based on how much we walk. So, the more we walk the bigger the slice of pie.

We hope you will get walking, running or cycling for Ninth Life Cat Rescue today! We will keep you updated periodically about how much money we are raising with this initiative!

Share with friends and family…

And get more people moving for Ninth Life Cat Rescue!
