It’s a beehive of activity in your community, and each shelter has a heartbeat all their own. We’re honoured and proud to be a safe haven for displaced animals who need a safe place to be, to heal, to be helped to move on to the next step in their lives.

Shelters are busy, noisy, fun, vibrant, stressful, emotional and gratifying places. We do our very best for the animals in our care.

This week I met two new pairs of volunteers. Two moms and two daughters who are teaming up to spend time helping the animals. It was fun to look at the shelter through their eyes. They are full of excitement and enthusiasm at the thought of making a difference to an animal who hasn’t found their forever family yet. They are optimistic, positive and they truly see each animal as an individual, full of potential, and deserving of a happy ending to their story.

If you ask Vanessa why she is smiling, and why she comes to the shelter several days a week, she will tell you it’s because she loves the animals and because they need her. And she’s right! We are their voice, their protectors, their advocates. You hear me talking a lot about our events. It’s all about the animals. It’s who we are, what we do, why we exist. When you support a humane society fundraiser you directly help the homeless animals in our care. Every bit of help matters.

The event will be held at the beautiful Americana Resort in Niagara Falls, and includes twenties music and dance performances, silent and live auctions, a photo booth, a candy bar, and dinner, of course. There will be a raffle for our “wall of wine”, composed of local wines. It’s a chance to win 30 bottles of wonderful local wine. We also are having a “stock the bar” raffle, perfect timing to help with your holiday entertaining!
