On Mon­day Fe­bru­ary 1 Co-op Mall and mer­chants do­nated $500 to the Drumheller Hu­mane So­ci­ety for work done last fall. Kelci Travis of the Hu­mane So­ci­ety is a vol­un­teer board mem­ber, foster co­or­di­na­tor and sec­re­tary for this not-for profit so­ci­ety. Travis said, “Our main fo­cus is to strive to help an­i­mals not only within our com­mu­nity but an­i­mals in gen­eral. We teach ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams about an­i­mal health, spay­ing and neu­ter­ing. We have a small board, a large vol­un­teer base, peo­ple who foster, clean­ers and cat cud­dlers. Vol­un­teers come from DARTS, MH En­ter­prises and the high schools. Right now, this cen­tre is only for cats, so dogs are fos­tered un­til they are adopted. Cur­rently we have 22 cats of which five are kit­tens. Preg­nant cats are sent to a foster home to have their ba­bies in or­der to have a calmer en­vi­ron­ment. The only dog we have in foster care is a seven year old Husky- Shep­herd cross and it is wait­ing for adop­tion.” Pic­tured l-r: Co-op Con­troller David Kosolof­ski, Green­tree Liquor Mart Man­ager Bernie Weis, Hu­mane So­ci­ety Kelci Travis, Tugs owner Larry Was­mann and Marks Work Ware­house owner Myra Kuhl.
