SAINTS Open House 2018

Posted: June 11, 2018 at 7:11 am

Smiling faces of SAINTS at our open house this weekend. .. The open house is a time for our shelter and the saintly crew to really take centre stage in a way a traditional event cannot. We thank everyone who came to our little shelter and are grateful for all the kind comments about our SAINTS community. Through your generosity we raised $5700.

Watch SAINTS volunteer Nat and Rayne talk about SAINTS and the open house on CTV Vancouver Noon News. Well Nat because Rayne was far too interested in his food to contribute. Nat had to do all the talking…

Thank you CTV Vancouver, Rebecca Atkinson and Krissy Vann for allowing us to highlight our work.

The Amazing Raise – Minnie is Number 1

Posted: May 20, 2018 at 4:59 pm

Yesterday was a really exciting day for Amazing Raise campaign. There was definite race between Team MP Room and Team House. Literally at the last moment a $500 donation came through and Minnie and Team House were declared the winner just before we shut down the campaign.

Here are the results.
Unassigned donations $1,430
Team Bunny Room $7,315
Team Barn $7,405
Team MP Room $8,090
Team House $8,375

The total is $32,615 (an astounding $7,615 over our goal). Minnie is a humble girl and is so overwhelmed that her team is number 1. All the captains are thrilled that they achieved totals well over their $6,250 goal.

Special thanks goes to Brenda McCormick who year after year has collected money from her friends and family. This year she contributed $1,700 for her Team House.

Thank you to every person who donated to our campaign, shared our posts and just spread the word. Thank you to our donors that consistently give to our fundraisers every time we send out an ask. Thank you to Ann Luu ,Darcy Matheson and Nat and Drew’s Pet Page for always being willing to highlight our fundraisers and in the process expose us to a wider audience then we could ever reach. It is this generous community that helps us achieve and surpass our fundraising goals. We employees, volunteers, and of course the SAINTLY crew are humbled and grateful.

The Amazing Raise Is Back

Posted: April 17, 2018 at 12:41 pm

In 2017 SAINTS’ vet bills totaled just over $205,000. Most of the residents arrive at SAINTS with huge vet bills. A large percentage continue to require medical attention long after they have arrived. We are therefore always looking for innovative and creative ways to ensure money continues to flow in so that we can care for the SAINTS. The Amazing Raise, one of our more popular fundraisers, is back for its 7th year.

The Amazing Raise always puts fun into fundraising. The SAINTS’ are divided into 4 teams based on that part of SAINTS they consider home. There is the House, the MP Room, and the Barn. This year a fourth team has been added, Team Bunny Room. We thought they deserved there own team since they now have their very own separate building. Each group is on a race to raise the most amount of money for their respective areas; it’s all very exciting and for such a great cause! Each group has a team captain. This year we have chosen to have money raised to go directly to our vet bills and therefore the team captains were all chosen to highlight the various medical issues SAINTS deals with on a daily basis. And also because they are CUTE!

We invite the public to join in the fun by giving a donation to your favorite area of SAINTS.

Minnie, Raven, Zoe, and LILO thank you and also they would like to win this race so they each hope everyone donates to their team. Here is the link  The Amazing Raise to our petfundr page.

We’re Dreaming of a SAINTS Christmas

Posted: December 17, 2017 at 6:08 pm

We’re dreaming of a SAINTS Christmas
Just like the ones we’ve had before.
Where the barnyard glisten and the sheep listen
For Santa arriving here once more.

We’re dreaming of a SAINTS Christmas
With every card that’s sent our way.
Hear the dogs woof greetings , the cats purr while sleeping
And all the horses gently neigh.

We’re dreaming of a SAINTS Christmas
Just like the ones we used to know.
Where there’s treats plenty
No dish is empty and no-one has o shovel snow!

We’re dreaming of a SAINTS Christmas
As we bid goodbye to twenty seventeen.
May our pipes no freeze up or our people seize up
And may all our Christmases be green.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone
From all of us here in SAINTS dreamland

All We Want For Christmas Is a Tractor

Posted: November 25, 2017 at 12:14 pm

The weatherman is predicting snow again this year. A tractor/plow would help us immensely if that snow shows up. And we can use it throughout the year. We will take a used one.
