LAWS' FIRST ONLINE AUCTION WAS A GREAT SUCCESS!
We wish to thank everyone who came out to bid on auctions items, who donated items and liked and shared our page. With your support, LAWS was able to raise $2,255.00 which will go towards offsetting the costs of future surgeries and veterinary care for our animals. Thanks also to our auction organizers for a job well done.
We look forward to doing another auction this spring, so please stay tuned to our Auction page (Online Auction for LAWS Animal Shelter) for updates.
Our recent "Pet Photos with Santa Paws" event at Pet Valu in Almonte, was a fun day. Many dogs came along with their owners to pose for the Jolly Old Man. Thank you to Dalene Gallo (photographer), husband Daryl McAndrew (Santa) from Picture it Studio. Together they raised $150 for LAWS.
THANK YOU CANADIAN TIRE!
Many thanks and much gratitude to the staff at Canadian Tire, Smiths Falls, who have been collecting money for charity for several months now. On Dec. 1, they got together to present their funds to four local charities. LAWS was among the four very grateful recipients of a cheque for $1000, which will help tremendously with ongoing spay/neuter costs. Cathy and Dave Lindstedt were on hand to accept the cheque on behalf of LAWS. Read full details here (Laurie Weir (Metroland Media).
THANK YOU REMAX!
A huge thank you and shout out to REMAX for their efforts to raise over $600 for LAWS during their annual "Picture Taking with Santa Event for LAWS". Very much appreciated. On behalf of all of us at LAWS, thank you!
LAWS CAPITAL CAMPAIGN - NEW SHELTER BUILDAnimal lovers Dave and Cathy Lindstedt helped launch the New Digs for LAWS capital campaign with a $5,000 donation at this year's 'Walk Your Paws for LAWS' Event. A further $5,000 which was raised that day, has helped launch LAWS on the road to its goal of $525,000 for the campaign.
The campaign has a $525,000 goal to either build a new shelter for the Lanark Animal Welfare Society or provide significant upgrades to its current location.
