GivingTuesday: Help Us Top Up Our Spay/Neuter Fund For 2019!
November 1 – December 31, 2018
(Actual date of GivingTuesday is November 27, 2018)

Invest in keeping the pet popular down in the City of Kawartha Lakes.  Help us to continue to spay/neuter every cat, kitten, dog and puppy that enters into our care.  The faster we can spay/neuter, the faster we can get these pets into loving forever homes!

Take our Cat Room B for example… our goal is to raise $1,500 this GivingTuesday, if we succeed, we will be able to have 15 felines spayed/neutered*!  That’s our whole population in Cat Room B!

Why does this matter?  By altering pets, we keep the population of unwanted animals down.  If an animal adopted from our shelter gets out, the adopter can safely know that their pet will not come home pregnant.  

What is GivingTuesday?

‘GivingTuesday is a global day of giving. After the sales of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, GivingTuesday is a time to celebrate and encourage activities that support charities and non profits. Whether it’s making a donation, volunteering time, helping a neighbour or spreading the word, GivingTuesday is a movement for everyone who wants to give something back.’

Yes! You can help us achieve our goal!

By making a donation, you can help us raise $1,500… that’s 15 spays/neuters!  We are proud to say that every cat, kitten, dog and puppy are altered before they leave our care.

So many ways you can help us to achieve our goal…
If 20 people donate $75 each…
If 50 people donate $30 each…
If 100 people donate $15 each… we will achieve our goal!

We are focusing more efforts on cats and kittens, because the dog/puppy population is not at a crisis level in the City of Kawartha Lakes.

So many ways to safely donate!
