Pet Con­nec­tion gets boost

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Stanstead

Al­most seventy people at­tended last Satur­day’s fundraiser at the Café Bar Sans Fron­tieres, in Stanstead, for Jennifer Young’s Pet Con­nec­tion ser­vice, in Len­noxville. The ser­vice brings to­gether people look­ing for pets with pets that have been aban­doned or saved.

“We had a lot of lo­cals and lots of people from Len­noxville. The bar do­nated $500 and we raised $480 with the Silent Auc­tion that my wife, Jennifer Car­rier, took care of. She worked re­ally hard to get a lot of great stuff for the auc­tion,” said Brian Reynolds, the man­ager of the bar. “All the lo­cal businesses do­nated some­thing and we even had a Voced course from the Len­noxville Vo­ca­tional Train­ing Cen­tre, worth $200, do­nated, and lots of home­made good­ies. We’d like to thank ev­ery­one who do­nated some­thing,” he added.

Mr. Reynolds hopes to make it an an­nual fundraiser. “A lot of lo­cal people have found their pets through the Pet Con­nec­tion,” he said.
