Dear Friends of the Animals,

It’s National Volunteer Week! The National Volunteer Week theme for 2021, The Value of One, The Power of Many, reflects on the awe-inspiring acts of kindness by millions of individuals AND the magic that happens when we work together towards a common purpose. This past year, we have seen people supporting family, friends, neighbours, and strangers, people standing up to systemic racism, and people sharing insights on how to create a more just and equitable society.

We recognize the value of the caring and compassion that each one has shown another, and we recognize the power of people, organizations, and sectors working together. Across the country. Even though COVID is continuing to keep us apart we can’t let this week go by without sending a huge thank you to our AMAZING volunteers!

Did you know that our Spring Lottery is possible because of some of our amazing, dedicated volunteers? When you phone to purchase your lottery tickets it’s likely a volunteer on the other end of the phone taking your order. The lottery is a success because of our volunteers who give hours of their time in order to help the animals. 


There are only a few hundred tickets left and our volunteers will be ready to receive your call between 10am-2pm, Monday to Friday at 905 574-7722 ext. 407. Purchase your Spring Lottery tickets today!
While most of our volunteer programs are still on hold we can’t wait for the day when we can welcome our volunteers back. Until then, we want to express our sincere appreciation to them all and send them a big virtual hug. Thank you to volunteers everywhere!
