This month, area residents once again have the opportunity to vote for their favourite projects seeking funding under the Columbia Basin Trust's (CBT) Community Initiatives Program. The Protecting Animal Life Society (PALS) would like to let our supporters know that we will not be requesting CBT funding this year. Our fundraising activities and the generous public support from Nakusp and surrounding communities has ensured that we can sustain ourselves for 2014.
We are very grateful to the CBT for this program that has allowed us to access needed funding in previous years. We would also like to acknowledge the Nakusp Veterinary Clinic for their ongoing in kind donations and invaluable help and support. We humbly thank all of you who care, from those who deposit loose change into our donation tins to those whose circumstances allow for larger gifts.
Since 2003, your tax deductible donations have helped PALS to assist numerous animals and their owners in many ways. In 2013, 64 neglected and homeless pets received vet exams, vaccinations, spaying or neutering, tattooing, and other necessary medical attention. These animals were then adopted into loving, forever homes. In addition, PALS Spay/Neuter Program enabled low income families to spay or neuter their pets, and last year 27 cats, 19 dogs, and one rabbit went through this program. As well, PALS Lost and Found registry received calls on 20 cats and 6 dogs.
Thanks to our caring communities and dedicated volunteers, we are making a difference, one animal at a time.
The Protecting Animal Life Society, better known as PALS, provides food, shelter, medical care and love to neglected and homeless pets from Edgewood to Trout Lake to Enterprise Creek.
PALS formed its own society in 2003. The group broke away from the B.C. SPCA in order to keep locally raised funds used locally. In the past nine years, PALS has spent $240,940.47 on helping 1262 animals find new loving homes. Every cent fundraised by our dedicated volunteers has gone towards the medical expenses, food, shelter and supplies for the animals surrendered to our care. Thanks to our many supporters, we have been able to provide special programs such as our Spay/Neuter blitz.
