Roots arrived from Whapmagoostui in pain -- his badly broken leg needed immediate attention. Surgery was done and pins put in to stabilize the bone. Hopefully this young dog is now on the road to recovery. It is only through the generosity of our supporters that Animatch is able to continue helping dogs like Roots. All donations -- large are small -- are so appreciated.
Animatch has humble beginnings. It was founded in 1999 by Helen Lacroix, a busy wife and mother. Her grassroots movement started around her kitchen table. Helen credits her parents with instilling in her their love and concern for animals. Today, Animatch boasts a centre with accommodation for a dozen dogs and a dedicated team of volunteers.
