All the Dogs Are Going to the Ball (W4W)… What About the Cats?

Posted: July 13, 2017 at 6:45 pm

I was always the the kid that wasn’t very athletic and not popular so always picked last in gym class so I always empathize with the cats because they are the over weight, non blonde, non cheerleader person at saints. Only 1/2 of the cats have been sponsored. Please help them (okay me) believe that they aren’t the one’s that never get asked to dance.

11th Annual Wishes 4 Whiskers Charity Dinner & Auction

Posted: June 24, 2017 at 4:52 pm

Hey people yes W4W is back. Please save the date. AND my first task is to see if SAINTS can get some great silent auction items. So I ask.. have any of you received a gift at Christmas, Valentine’s Day, a or Birthday that you aren’t going to use? I am betting those unused items might be someone’s else dream item. Think about regifting to our event. Email me at eventssaintsrescue@gmail.com.

Also did I mention that Nat Hunter is going to again host our evening. She is thinking up some cool ideas for our event.

This year we have created a “special” place to donate and purchase tickets
Click Here to Purchase Tickets It captures a lot of information we have had to collect manually so Ann and I (Sheila) would be ever so grateful if people used our link to purchase tickets and donate to the event.

The Amazing Raise Total

Posted: May 8, 2017 at 2:14 pm


The total is $50,023.  Wowzers. 

Thank you to each and every person who shared, liked, or retweeted our story.  And a very humble and grateful thank you to everyone who donated to make our campaign so successful. 

We had two incredibly generous supporters of SAINTS donate $10,000 and $5,000 respectively.  We  got $3096 extra yesterday at the culmination of our campaign at Townhall Maple Ridge pub.  The online total is $31,927.  That all adds up to $50,023 which netted us $47,156.00

Here is our list of repairs at the beginning of the campaign
– the mold issue in the medical room/cat room
– connect plumbing to the building
– install 2 exhaust fans
– replace the siding in front of the building
– insulate the outside walls that have opened up
– and if enough funds are raised new gutters

 

We were able to do all of the above, including the gutters.  And we were able to also
– put in a higher fence between the MP room and House as some of the dogs were jumping over it
– a new shed with 4 walls and door to replace the outside storage tent that collapsed on us
– power washing of buildings
– painted all fascia boards on the house and MP building

Any additional funds left will be used to pay off outstanding medical bills.

 

And here is how each team did

Team Barn $7,155

Team House $8,420

Donations not designated $7,350

And what to do,what to do about Team MP Room? The $15,000 donations referenced the Diesel video but did not designate a team. After mulling it over, getting feedback, and asking Diesel we decided Diesel should get the credit as Diesel does reside in the MP Room.  Sooooo……

Team MP Room $24,002

Diesel is demanding that next year they just make him the Captain because he did the heavy lifting…
