As of 2017, Winnipeg Lost Dog Alert Inc. (WLDA) became a Registered Charity. What does this mean to us? It means that when you donate $5 or more to WLDA, we now get to give back to you by issuing a tax receipt for your donation.

Other than the odd fundraisers we put on, donations are an important part of our organizaiton. They are used to purchase equipment such as trail cameras, traps, microchip scanners, batteries and memory cards. They are also put towards the cost of events we are invited to plus our own events, production of awareness materials for distribution at events as well as operational expenses including insurance, postage and website expenses, etc.

We have a Go Fund Me campaign going on right now to raise money for a new humane trap. We have a couple of traps but we do not have an extra large trap for the bigger dogs. We have come across a couple of cases where the dogs would not go in our trap because the trap was too small. In order for us to get the bigger dogs to safety and back home with their family, we need this trap.
