Bulkley Valley Insurance BBQ Fundraiser - Thanks so much! Print E-mail
Friday, 21 July 2017 23:28

Thanks to Bulkley Valley Insurance Services (BVIS) for organizing a fundraiser BBQ for the NWAS! We received a much needed $1,375 from this event. Pictured are Dawn MacKay from BVIS, Jo Anne Maxwell (winner of the draw for a $200 Gift Certificate from Smithers Feed store - who donated it back to the NWAS!), NWAS Director Sara Tomlinson, and chef extraordinaire Bonnie Volk from the Smithers Sausage Factory. Thanks to all the businesses that supported the event, in addition to those mentioned above, including the Bulkley Valley Credit Union, BV Wholesale, Royal Canadian Legion, Coast Mountain GM, Moose FM and the Interior News. Thanks to all the patrons who came down to enjoy a yummy burger and support the event. Rumour has it that Bandstra Transportaion purchased burgers for an exorbitant amount! The NWAS works hard to help the companion animals of the Bulkley Valley, but we could not do it without the ongoing support of the businesses and residents of this amazing community we call home. Thank you so much!

Store manager Janet and Kathy presented the NWAS with a cheque for $1,662.23, raised during their Pet Appreciation month last April!  Thank you to Total Pet, their dedicated and knowledgeable  employees, and everyone who bought a paw for the shelter!  We were also able to showcase our animals available for adoption during this event, and received donations of food and product.  Thank you for your support, it means so much!

Royal Bank Day of Service 2017 Edition! Print E-mail

Thanks so much to the crew from the Royal Bank who worked for 3 hours Saturday, as part of their day of service helping a local charity.  And did they work!  We did fencing, filled in holes (why do dogs dig holes?  I have been told it is because they are dogs!), and did some clean up too.  A great day working with a great group of people!  Pictured Keith Schindler, Deanne McLean, Duncan Lea, Caitlen Lea, Lisa Drzimotta, Aiden Press.  Thank you so much to Stefan at Steti Transport for donating a load a road crush to the project!  The community support is so appreciated!

Thank you Wetzin'kwa Community Forest Corp! Print E-mail

We would like to thank the Wetzin'kwa Community Forest Corp for the amazing support they provide to local groups in the Bulkley Valley.  Last year over $150,000 was distributed to successful applicants.   The NWAS was the lucky recipient of funds to construct a permanent roof structure over the outdoor part of our kennels.  Thank you to Wetzin'kwa for funding the project, and Bill Stephens Contracting for the amazing job - needless to say no more water runs down the wall and into the kennel building!  Thank you to John Horlings of Ultra Trucking for donating the excavation of the footings.  A picture really is worth a thousand words, as exhibited by the before and after pictures below.

Kassandra Trust Donation - Septic system Print E-mail
Sunday, 10 January 2016 13:06

In September (2015), after years of using buckets and allowing no water to go down the drain, the NW Animal Shelter got the septic system installed.  A massive thank you is owed to John Horlings who did a fabulous job, and Steti Transport for delivering several loads of gravel to the project at no charge!  Steti has been a long term supporter of the shelter, donating several loads of gravel when we initially set up at the shelter property.  The biggest thank you is owed to NWAS volunteer and foster care provider Ellen, who donated the funds for the project through her trust www.kassandra-trust.com.

The Kassandra trust is a private trust that supports communities in northern BC - dedicating funds with an emphasis on community, arts, ecology, sustainability and innovation.  We cannot say enough how the completion of this project has made the life of shelter volunteer easier!  Thank you all!
