Events

Big Canoe Animal Rescue’s dog and cat shelter will temporarily suspend our Saturday Open House events for three weeks beginning March 21 to promote social distancing per COVID-19 guidelines. We will re-evaluate this closing in mid-April as we continue to monitor guidelines.

However, if you have an interest in seeing a particular cat or dog during this period of time, please call the BCAR line at (706) 268-1346.  Leave a message for Cecilia or Pat (for cats) and Jodette (for dogs).  Someone will get back to you as quickly as possible. We will be very happy to arrange to meet with you and one or more of our cats and dogs.

Thank you for your understanding during this time.
