The Grey Bruce Animal Shelter and the Southampton Care Centre are teaming up for a special and important fundraiser.

On April 19, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., 'Yolanda' will be hosting a day of spiritual healing, guidance and counseling ... with all proceeds going to the Grey Bruce Animal Shelter.

The Shelter is an independent volunteer organization that reaches out to help animals who cannot help themselves.  When the time comes that an owner can no longer care for a pet, the Shelter provides peace of mind for the family knowing that their pet is in a safe and caring environment until an adoptive home is found.

Operated entirely by volunteers, the Shelter is not allowed, due to government regulations, to pick up stray animals and is an owner-surrendered facility only. The Shelter relies solely on donations from the public, local businesses, surrender fees, adoption fees and fundraisers.  Funds raised go toward food, veterinary services, hydro and heating, insurance, taxes, etc.

All pets are vaccinated and the goal is to have every pet spayed or neutered prior to adoption and the Shelter has a 'wish list' that people can help with ... food, kitty litter, paper towels, all cleaning products, Canadian Tire Money, Zehrs receipts, office supplies, building supplies for dog houses, pens and an outdoor cat play area.

Volunteers can fill many needed positions at the Shelter from pet companions who care for the animals by taking them for walks, brushing or simply cuddling, office work, cleaning, laundry, general maintenance or arranging fundraisers.  Volunteers with computer skills are needed and students needing community hours are always welcome.
