On April 20-22, BCFS visited Pet Valu Port Colborne in an effort to raise awareness and funds for our rescue. The event turned out to be quite the success! Between the bake sale and cash donations we raised a whopping $652.55, all of which will go directly to helping the animals.We had several special animal guests including Peppa the pig, Sweet Pea the goat, Thumper, Chunk, and Theodore the Flemish Giant rabbits, Kevin the Netherland Dwarf Rabbit, our two newest orphaned kittens, and Scarlett the little blind Shih Tzu.
We also had some special human guests, including Annie the Clown (www.annietheclown.ca) doing balloons for the kids and her assistant Debi doing glitter tattoos. A big thank you to Annie and Debi for donating their time to help bring a little extra fun to our event. Also, a big thank you goes out to our volunteers Bill, Megan, Ellyse, Silvana, Elisabeth, Ashley, Rayna, and Lauren for helping at the event throughout the weekend and to Leah for donating prizes for the draw.
We certainly can’t forget about all the wonderful baked goods that were brought in for our bake sale. A special thank you goes out to Tonia, Elisabeth, Miranda, Brenda, Laura, Ashley, Jean, Emily of “It’s a Piece of Cake” (289-214-7735), and the Vegan Hippie Chick (www.theveganhippiechick.com) for donating delicious treats.
Last, but certainly not least, we would like to extend our sincerest thanks to Pet Valu Port Colborne for choosing BCFS as the rescue to support during their adoption event. Thank you to Carol (Owner) and Diane (Manager) and to the wonderful staff Karen, Karen, Amanda, and Kayla, who continue to prove themselves to be incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and kind.
