Winter/Spring 2019


We are so grateful to be one of the recipients of the Huff Family Fund grants for 2019. With the funds we received, we are hoping to be able to increase our spay and neuter efforts by 10% in order to help keep the feline population in the County down. Thank you so much to the Huff Family Fund for selecting us! We cannot do what we do without support.

Rescued Cat in the Community

Thanks to Charlotte and Alexus who rescued “Socks” a male intact cat who is approximately 1-2 years old. They took him to Pet Valu Picton to get cleaned up (even if it is a “dog” wash!)

***NEW MARCH 15, 2016***

We want to extend a great big thank you to Grace and Taylor (pictured) for donating $120 to the LHS this spring.

These young ladies sold hot chocolate to raise the funds but this isn't the first time they've donated - they have also sold lemonade and went caroling at Christmas to raise money! Grace and Taylor (both 10 years old) are both members of the AAC animal awareness club in Ottawa and we are very appreciative that they selected us as their charity to donate to! Thank you to Grace, Taylor and their family and friends for supporting us.


Wow! The generosity of the youth in our community is outstanding. We'd like to extend thanks to 8-year-old Jake who used his birthday to help raise money and donated goods for the LHS. Thanks to Jake, his family and friends for thinking of us and being so generous!
