Its been a long couple of weeks here at HomeFinders, but hopefully things are calming down and will be slow (or fast – we need homes!!!) and steady in the next little while!
A few updates! First, we have our kitty condos completed an are flying the last 2 cats from Smithers tomorrow!! NO cats had to be put down, we did it & although there’s still a lot of work ahead, the cats are safe, warm and housed! Only 6 had to be brought here to stay in the condos and we are SO happy with the contacts we’ve made!
The condos are 4-levels each, 6′ ish? Tall and comfy. Thanks to Chris and Shanna @ Extra Hands for building these!! (http://extrahandsvancouver.weebly.com/) – I will get some photos up tomorrow!
August, Aster, Jenny and Fluffy are currently settling into their new luxury accommodations and not too upset from their big day!!
Miss Lily came back to us as she just wasn’t socializing with her family in her new home. She is now again looking for a great home and we are sure she will make great progress now without her brother!
Patches and Simba came down and are settled in beautifully in their foster home. They are lovely affectionate boys!!
We had an adoption event at Release the Hounds (http://releasethehounds.ca) and met some great people and thank you so much to the owners, Niki and Josh, for their ongoing support!! We will have some Christmas photo fundraising dates there at the end of next month/beginning of December!
We had another event at Woof Dog Shoppe (http://www.woofdogshoppe.com/) in Kits, thank you to everyone who came by and we look forward to doing it again!!
Sophie is well, making progress and going to classes at Release the Hounds. We are sure she will make a great companion for the right person, especially if they have other dogs (she loves!) and kids (she adores!) – she will take or leave the adults ;)
We received our certificate of incorporation, yay! This means we are incorporated as a not for profit society in BC. We are finishing up our paperwork for charitable status, which is fabulous and exciting!!
We still need sponsors! We have outstanding $$ towards the materials for the kitty condos, vet bills, and Sophie’s training. We also have 3 going in to be fixed in the next week, and Diablo had his big day about a week ago!! It all adds up and we could really use the support!! You can donate via paypal – go to our site @ http://homefinders.petfinder.org and under the first paragraph is a “donate” button!! Every dollar helps!! Donations can also be made directly to Point Grey Veterinary Clinic 604-228-9633 on the HomeFinders account via credit card, or by mail –
