Special Mentions

Pet Valu Perth Donations

Many thanks goes out to the Customers and Pet Valu Perth staff for their active involvement in giving and receiving donations that will benefit many local animal organizations during the recent "Month of Thanksgiving" Food Drive in October.

LAWS is very grateful to be one of the recipients of a car load full of food and litter. It's a huge help during this very busy year of helping animals!

Dave and Cathy Lindstedt


Animal lovers Dave and Cathy Lindstedt helped launch the New Digs for LAWS Capital Campaign with a $5,000 donation at our 2016 '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.
