Letters: Rescued pups say thanks with a smile

Fort Nelson supports SPCA rescue efforts

Re: 119 small dogs surrendered in Fort Nelson, March 15

Good morning, I’m messaging you from Fort Nelson - the community where 119 poor puppies were being hoarded.

I wanted to hold a fundraiser to show that our community is so much better than what that one family did. In 7 days Fort Nelson showed up for these dogs and together we raised:

  • $2346.00 in cash

  • 25 big bags of food

  • 2 med bags of food

  • 2 small bags of food

  • 22 bags of treats

  • 6 1lbs bags of treats

  • 5 Snoozer beds

  • 9 balls

  • 1 cuddle Buddy toy

  • 6 dental care toys

  • 1 puppy teething toy

All of this will be donated to the Fort St John and Dawson Creek SPCA today.
