Tux and his Family Required Immediate Help

Alberta SPCA Peace Officers enforce the Animal Protection Act in our province and the majority of animals that come into our care are a result of our neglect and abuse investigations. However, there are many unfortunate circumstances that require involvement of our Animal Protection Team. Tux’s story is one of them.

Tux, a cute and curious kitten, along with his two sweet siblings and their parents had a comfortable life with all their needs met, that is until their owner died unexpectedly. Left alone there was no one to provide food, water and other essentials. Without delay, our Peace Officer drove to the remote community to collect the cats.

The kittens were affectionate, adorable, and hungry. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we were able to bring them safely into our care and meet their immediate needs. The cats all received spay/neuter surgeries and vaccinations to prepare them for adoption.

Our next challenge was to find a partner organization to find the cats new homes, ones where they would be loved and cared for. While our Peace Officers do critical work to relieve distress, we rely on vital partner organizations to rehome the animals that come into our care all over Alberta.

Unfortunately, the shelter system in Alberta is under tremendous stress due to a number of factors, including the effects of the pandemic and the financial strain so many Albertans are facing. This means animals can remain in our care for weeks or months until space opens at a shelter. Fortunately, after a six-week stay with us, one of our partner agencies was finally able to take in Tux and his family members and put them up for adoption. We’re confident Tux and his family will live happy and healthy lives from here on out.
