What's Happening at TMARS
After countless hours of hard work by our amazing team, we are excited to announce that we have been granted official CRA Charity Status.This is a huge accomplishment for our growing rescue!
What exactly does this mean?? Twin Meadows Animal Rescue Society can now provide official tax donation receipts. Receipts will be sent automatically at the time of your donation when you use the donation form on our website. The tax receipt email will come from contact@Zeffy.com. If you choose to make monthly donations, one tax receipt will be sent at the end of the calendar year. You will be asked to support Zeffy when you confirm your donation. This is voluntary and can be customized.
Thank you to everyone for their support! The Elk Valley is truly a fantastic community. A huge thank you to our team. This was a long road of paperwork, papercuts and headaches. BUT WE DID IT!"

The Class of 2023
The Team at Twin Meadows is heaving a collective sigh of relief after experiencing the busiest 3 months in its history. It really was a year of the Good, the Bad and the Ugly and the Rescue team rose to the occasion to help the animals that rely on us for their care and well-being.
By the numbers, we had 25 dogs, 49 cats and a rabbit! But numbers don't tell the tale:
As usual there were several litters of kittens - remember the Cheeses, the Fruit Bowl Babies and the Halloween litter!
We had the memorable Mama Polar and her 6 puppies who have enriched so many lives in the Elk Valley
Brisco taught us that mega-Eosophogus is an easy to manage condition with the use of a specialized high chair for eating
Of course we all remember the story of Copper who ran loose in Alberta for months, finally was captured in September and came into the care of Twin Meadows. After months of TLC this handsome girl is now looking for her forever home.
And finally there was Tommy-Boy who pulled at the heart strings of everyone who met him. Tommy was found in Fernie, neglected and abused and paId for it with seizures. He had a skull fracture and terrible ear infections contributing to his ill health. Despite all that, Tommy was happy to finally know love and care from the TMARS and Tanglefoot Vet teams. Sadly, in spite of round the clock care and attention, Tommy was euthanized. Not all of our stories have happy endings but that only inspires the TMARS team to further our cause and care for animals in need.
