FORT NELSON, B.C. – Fort Nelson came together to raise cash and donations for the SPCA branches caring for the 119 dogs received earlier this month.
In seven days, the community was able to raise $2,346 plus 25 big bags of food, two medium and two small bags of food, 22 bags of treats, six one-pound bags of treats, five snoozer beds, nine balls, one cuddle buddy toy, six dental care toys, and one puppy teething toy.
Lori Clark, one of the organizers, says, “Fort Nelson is such a supportive, compassionate community; I knew they would embrace my idea and show up for those 119 puppies.”
Clark also wanted to thank Ken Johnson, owner of Pet Pa’s, who was a huge help with the fundraiser and allowed Clark to use his store as a hub for food drop-offs.
The physical items will be donated to the North Peace SPCA in Fort St. John, while the cash will be dropped off at the South Peace SPCA in Dawson Creek.
