Congratulations to our Four Grant Recipients of 2022!
CONGRATULATIONS to The SPCA Renfrew County Animal Centre on receiving $5000.00 this year from our Annual Grants. The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society’s 38-foot SPCA Mobile Animal Wellness Services unit previously rolled into Renfrew County in July to host a much-needed spay/neuter clinic for cats from underserved pet families. The SPCA Mobile Animal Wellness Services unit provided spay/neuter surgeries for a total of 75 cats from July 11-13 at Royal Canadian Legion Branch 517 in Petawawa. This hugely successful Mobile event was made possible thanks to the generosity of Pembroke Petawawa District Community Foundation and Pet Valu Petawawa, who sponsored the event. We are grateful to our sponsors for making this clinic possible, to our local Legion for hosting, and to the pet families who registered their cats for this important service, which helps control pet overpopulation.
CONGRATULATIONS to the Robbie Dean Counselling Centre on receiving $1200.00 this year from our Annual Grants. The Robbie Dean Centre team would like to thank the Foundation for their continued support.
