Dear Reader, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because it’s about family, cooking, and eating. It is also a time to celebrate gratitude. I’m so thankful we don’t have political commercials anymore! I’m sure everyone would agree with me on that.
On this holiday, I will sing the praises of the people who are kind and support our homeless animals. Churchill Animal Protection Society, our local no-kill shelter, has tirelessly advocated for abused and abandoned animals. The volunteers, employees and board members are heroes for animals.
The 12 original members of CAPS (affectionately known as the Dirty Dozen) had a vision that has come to fruition since 1986. At first, CAPS used the old post office, but soon outgrew the space. As the need for accommodation grew, we moved to our current location. The future of CAPS looks brighter as we will eventually have access to a new home thanks to our amazing city and county leaders.
Of course our community deserves a huge shout out for the donations of food, funds, labor and volunteerism. Without you, our mission and treasure chest would be empty.
CAPS would like to thank all the businesses and voluntary “prisoners” who have supported our “Going to the Pound” fundraiser. Of course, we thank everyone who helped save our prized prisoners.
Thanks to: Jolene; Lane mills; Kathy Fraker; J&K Llamas; Caryn; Marjorie Lewis; Rebecca Dugan; Mel Gover; Province Museum; Malko’s; Greg Malkovich; Camacho car sales; Lucy Carnaham; Mitch Young; Pizza Barn; Widmer & Associates; CC communication; Cafe Espresso; Mary Sutherland; Sam; Fallen Ford Toyota; Tim Mitchell; John Mulac; Jim & Val; big horn; The village; and spoiled paws; The grid.
The money received will help spay and neuter our current 25 puppies living with CAPS or in foster homes.
Thanksgiving holiday is based on the idea of being grateful and grateful for all that life offers. It is with joy and gratitude that I thank CAPS and all who advocate for them. May your holidays be blessed!
