Local animal rescue group, ‘Dog Town – Bella Coola’ recently received a $500 donation from the Central Coast Regional District’s Grant-in-Aid Funding. This generous donation will join other recently received community donations that will help deliver flea and tick control medications, provide food to needy community animals and with support from the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), will assist in sending numerous dogs and cats at risk out of the valley for spay, neuter and rehoming.
Dog Town has been in consultation with the CCRD and there is interest to establish a long-term plan of support for Bella Coola’s companion animals. It is hoped that with generous donations such as received from our Regional District, a long-term ‘home grown’ animal health care service can be established for the pets of the Bella Coola valley.
Dog Town’s volunteers are grateful for the generous personal and corporate donations already received from the community and they would like to thank the Central Coast Regional District for their encouragement and financial support. With such generous donations Dog Town and its volunteer group can continue to focus their energy towards promoting the belief that longer living community animals will support a physically and emotionally healthier community.
