Dear Members and Friends:
We all know the older you get the faster the time goes by. 2015 seems to be passing by even faster!
We are busy preparing for our major fundraisers. Our calendars are on sale – still only $5 each. Please help us continue our very worthwhile spay/neuter program by attending one or more of our fundraising events. There is something for everyone. We can help you shop for Christmas. A PET PHOTO with Santa makes for a great gift!
Most animal groups are working harder than ever by tackling feral cat colonies. You would be amazed how many of these cats and kittens have been placed in homes. It takes time, energy and compassion. There are few greater pleasures among animal lovers than to gain the trust of a feral cat.
We are continuing our regular program of assisting financially in the spaying and neutering of cats and dogs belonging to people who cannot afford the full cost.
We are failing in getting the message to many people to be responsible pet owners. Not enough pets are being altered in order to stop the pet overpopulation problem.
Much praise and appreciation goes to the veterinarians and their support staff for all their help in enabling us to continue this program. Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers, businesses and individuals who donate prizes for raffles and silent auctions.
Our thanks and appreciation also go to:
- Everyone who helped make our Spring Benefit Concert and Silent Auction such a great success.
- Vernon Book Volunteers Society
- Hazel’s May Garage Sale which was very successful
- Nature’s Fare, Central Okanagan Regional District, Jane Pedlow, Susan Wort of Fashion Foundations,
- Provincial Employees Community Services Fund and Shoreline Construction.
- Special Thanks to Bosley’s, Buckerfleld’s, PetSmart and Total Pet for allowing us to showcase cats and kittens in their pet stores. We find good homes faster because of this great opportunity.
Our society is most grateful for all the help and kindness so many people provide.
Enjoy as many festivities and activities as you can!
