‘Dog Town Bella Coola’ receives generous donation from WLDCU

Local animal rescue group, ‘Dog Town – Bella Coola’ was the recent recipient of a generous $2,562.75 donation from the Williams Lake and District Credit Union’s Community Investment Fund.

This is the second time Dog Town has received such a generous grant from the Credit Union; in 2010 a $3,000 Community Investment donation helped to deliver over $1,600.00 worth of vaccinations and flea/tick control medications for over 300 Bella Coola companion animals as well as helped to provide food for over 400 needy community animals.

With support from the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), the Credit Union assisted 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 Nuxalk Nation and the CCRD and there is interest from both groups 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 the Credit Union, 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.  The donations cans that many businesses have kindly displayed continue to collect much-needed funds and when there was a need for blankets and bedding many individuals generously stepped forward to help.

On behalf of Dog Town’s volunteer group, we would like to thank the Williams Lake and District Credit Union for their ongoing 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.
