Candace heads up the Canadian Soi Dog Support Group . The event was held on Saturday November 10th at 11am & was covered by local newspapers & media in British Columbia. Candace is one brave lady especially considering it's now winter in Canada & she will now need to spend the cooler months wearing wooly hats. Candace raised $1600 & we are absolutely amazed by her courage & determination. Candace’s adopted Soi Dog, Gracie (formerly Ziti), was of course on site for the event. Many dogs have been adopted to Canada and Candace hopes to raise the number in 2013.
Through public fundraisers such as this, Candace is working hard to ensure the entire town she lives in is familiar with Soi Dog and our efforts to stop the dog meat trade. Awareness and participation is growing fast in Canada and Candace encourages Canadians to join her contact list of supporters. Please email Candace if you’d like to join the Soi Dog Canadian Support Group Her email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
A lot more ideas are on her slate for the new year, including more fundraisers, advertising campaigns, working towards registering Soi Dog as a charity in Canada, dog of the week promotions, publicizing donations wish-list and veterinary volunteer email campaigns, and recruiting volunteers to start chapters in different cities. Candace is also looking forward to helping with some orders & baking for Give A Dog A Bone Canada.
Candace will be holding another fundraiser on Dec 16 which will be a “Santa Paws” (Pet photo session with Santa), in co-ordination with Robin Andexser of Best Paws Forward Canine Training School.
Our Canadian Support Group is growing rapidly. If you live in Canada & would like to get involved, Candace & her team would be delighted to hear from you. You can also join the Canadian Soi Dog Adopters Group on facebook.
