Paws and effect

4Paws Rescue Society raises close to $4,000 with a pasta fundraiser at the Quarterdeck Pub.

Four paws met helping hands last week as the newly formed 4Paws Rescue Society held a pasta fundraiser at the Quarterdeck Pub.

The event was a huge success, raising close to $4,000 including five spays or neuters donated by a member of the public to the society.

Organizers estimated around 100 dinners sold with up to half that many again attending and donating in support.

“The staff were amazing and handled it all very well,” said society member Alexandra Shorre. “Lots of people donated more than we ever expected and we are so grateful for such a good turn out.”

Donations are always welcome and can be dropped off with Angela Smith at the Port Hardy Chamber office or made directly to the 4Paws account at the North Island Veterinary Hospital.
