There is a special fundraising event happening on Saturday August 17th at Plaza Pointe-Claire, QC and I am here to help spread the news!
I am especially pleased to do this, as these types of non profit organizations, and the volunteers that run them, deserve all of the recognition and help they can get! We were lucky enough to find Willow (our Collie, black lab mix) through a similar organization of volunteers, and I certainly recognize the time, effort and care that goes into running these types of companies. Animatch is a wonderful all inclusive canine adoption center in the suburbs of Montreal, which was founded in 1999 by Helen Lacroix. Learn more about Animatch here.
Jessica Cumberbirch, a professional ballet dancer and the creator of Studio Balletvolution on the West Island is spearheading this event as she has experienced first hand, the generosity and care of this organization. Their own dog, Dahlia, was rescued from the horrors of a puppy mill on the South Shore by Helen and her team. Recently, due to zoning regulations, this wonderful organization has had to relocate and build a new shelter for the many dogs in need, this requires funding.
