The Debra O’Flaherty Memorial Fund

Debra was a super keen animal lover. Her and husband Ed adopted two abandoned brothers from Gerdy’s. These dogs had a rough start, and both had been re-homed 2x, prior to coming to Gerdy’s. When Debra fell ill in 2022 Snooky and Mackenzie were loyal caregivers, snuggling on her bed and making her smile.

Debra’s family created this fund for Gerdy’s Rescue to aid our mission of helping sick and abandoned animals and changing their future. The family had requested donations be made in Debra’s name at the time of her untimely passing.

Special instructions:
Donations will be accepted within our general fund designation on CanadaHelps and PayPal. Please note “For The Debra O’Flaherty Memorial Fund” when donating.

The Sharon Grant Fund

This fund was established by Gerdy to reflect Sharon’s passion for supporting, helping, and caring for as many dogs and cats as possible by promoting and fundraising for Gerdy’s Rescues and Adoptions for many years.

The Jeannette Pekari Foundation

Jeanette was born an artist. From a young age she discovered the power of art as her preferred way of communication. Her career as an artist evolved beautifully as a result of her passion, talent and dedication with solo and group exhibitions too numerous to mention. Jeanette had a wonderful gift of sharing the world as she perceived it with her art and her paintings. Her artwork was inspired by many things such as family, travel, dreams, desires and fantasy. However, her biggest influence was her tremendous love for cats. Jeanette felt spiritually connected to the cats that came into her life and those who knew Jeanette, playfully, used to say that she must have been a cat in a past life. Jeannette always said that if she ever won the lottery, her dream would be to create a beautiful sanctuary for cats.

Sadly, Jeannette passed away suddenly and unexpectedly in March of 2015. Her mother, Eva Pekari would like to honour her daughter’s memory and love for cats and has created The Jeannette Pekari Foundation to benefit Gerdy’s Rescue. All monies raised through various events and the sale of Jeannette’s paintings will be donated to Gerdy’s Rescue, a Montreal-based animal rescue group and non-profit organization devoted to helping and finding homes for homeless cats and dogs.

This separate fund has been specifically established to assist people on limited income, as chosen by Gerdy, who are unable to cover all medical expenses for their much loved animals.

The Molly Iny Fund

A donation by the Iny family has been received by Gerdy’s Rescues in loving memory of MOLLY INY, a beloved white Portuguese water dog who passed away from cancer just short of her 8th birthday.

We will be honoring their request to start an informal MOLLY INY FUND specifically intended to help our dogs who need surgeries other than sterilization.

If you want to help such a dog, just specify on your donation “for the Molly Iny Fund” and it will be used for that purpose. The family of Molly wish her memory to live on by her being able to inspire people to support Gerdy’s efforts to help the animals we take in who need surgeries because of injury, abuse, neglect, or abandonment.

Special instructions:
If you wish to have your donation go for this purpose, please mark your donations “For the MOLLY INY FUND”, thank you!

The Kisha Fund

On February 7, 2010 tragedy struck a family in Greenfield Park. It was 3am when a couple was awakened by a fire on the lower floor of their family home.

Miraculously they were able to escape with their 15 year old dog Kisha. Once outside they realized that their 20 yr old son may have been at home at the time. Without hesitation his father ran back into the house. As he struggled through the dense smoke, he reached the kitchen, when suddenly the microwave exploded, knocking him unconscious. Sensing the terrible danger her owner was in, Kisha ran back into the house to find him. Kisha lay on his unconscious body, covering him from the flames; whining and barking incessantly until the fireman were able to find them.

The Fire Marshall said that without this dog’s heroism, the father would surely have not made it. Kisha passed away at his side after saving his life. Fortunately their son was not at home at the time. Sadly their new puppy Maggie perished in the fire. The true devotion, selflessness and unconditional loyalty that this heroic dog Kisha showed her owner, must never be forgotten.

The Family, Gerdy’s Rescues and Adoptions and Pet Friends Cremation Services Inc. have set up a fund to honour Kisha for her bravery. All donations made in her memory will go to assist and care for the abandoned pets at Gerdy’s Rescue and Adoptions.

The Goldens at Gerdy’s Fund

We are pleased to announce GOLDENS AT GERDYS which is a small umbrella group of specialty volunteers within Gerdy’s Rescues, who support the rescue of Golden Retrievers. They will raise funds so Goldens can be rescued, vetted, and kept by Gerdy’s Rescues until adoption through Gerdy’s Rescues in the usual manner. Thus we can help Goldens without financial detriment to our usual rescues of dogs and cats, which will be unaffected.

Special instructions:
Donations will be accepted within our general fund designation on CanadaHelps and PayPal. Please note “For Goldens” when donating.
