Do­na­tions help find for­ever homes for pets

Shoreline Beacon - - News - FRANCES LEARMENT Ed­i­tor

thanks to $671 in do­na­tions from gen­er­ous Port El­gin shop­pers to the grey Bruce an­i­mal Shel­ter nov. 23, more home­less pets will find for­ever homes.

to date, 66 dogs and 58 cats have found new lov­ing homes through the Shel­ter - a vol­un­teer­run, no-kill, sur­ren­der fa­cil­ity south­west of rock­ford that op­er­ates on pub­lic do­na­tions.

the Port El­gin event was one of 16 fundrais­ers this year for the Shel­ter that wants to “have fun and raise money,” ac­cord­ing to vol­un­teer Bar­bara Bing­ham.

the do­na­tions will help pay vet costs –one of the big­gest ex­penses as all in-com­ing an­i­mals are vet checked, neutered or spayed, in­oc­u­lated, re­ceive flea and worm care and any per­sonal treat­ments.
