Where is the "Hope For Wildlife" equivalent in NB?

Watching the series "Hope for Wildlife" with my daughter, you can't help but notice the care and compassion that is advertised but often missing from the mainstream for profit animal hospitals. The following is verbatim from a post shared tonight on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram: I'm saddened to announce that the #efforts (None that I'm aware of) of the #riverviewanimalhospital were not enough to save this little #kittycat that had given up along the roadside last night. I am very disappointed in an organization holding itself out as an animal hospital. I reluctantly left the #malnourished #cat (possible infection & in need of neutering but too #weak ) to be cared for. Even though i was referred by the SPCA, it was clear that the biggest concern was who would pay & am convinced that had I taken ownership there would have been numerous options for care at my disposal. I left my phone number for follow up specifically asking that I receive a call to advise of the animal's prognosis indicating that I would not see the cat #euthanized I followed up three times by phone being advised that the #feline was resting comfortably but when I went in to check on the cat at 4:30 today I was told that the #animal was in isolation when I believe it had already been #putdown. What kind of system are we running here in #Moncton / #Riverview #NB #Canada Reference:
