Foundation Awards $10,000.00 in Donations to Seven Local Animal Welfare Organizations

 

On September 12, 2009 at 12 noon at Wal-Mart, Mr. Carl Chase, President and Trustee of The Keri Chase Foundation is pleased to award $10,000.00 to:

 

Five local registered animal welfare charities:

bullet

The Thunder Bay & District Humane Society - $3,000.00

bullet

North Superior People Animal Welfare  and Safety Inc. (PAWS) - $2,000.00

bullet

The Thunder Bay Therapeutic Riding Association - $2,000.00

bullet

Flight of Fancy - $1,000.00

bullet

New Hope Dog RESQ - $1,000.00

 

Two local non-registered animal welfare organizations:

bullet

Hoofer’s Haven - $500.00

bullet

Local Dog Rescue – Troy Way - $500.00

 

The Thunder Bay & District Humane Society and PAWS have maintained spay and neutering programs to reduce the number of unwanted pets and ultimately the pain and suffering those pets will meet.  These organizations spay and neuter as many animals as possible but unfortunately due to the lack of funds, cannot get them all done.  This contribution will enable them to expand their program and provide the new pet owners a small rebate once their animal has been spayed or neutered.

 

The Thunder Bay Therapeutic Riding Association maintains a herd of horses and provides therapeutic riding opportunities to physically and mentally challenged children and adults.  Our contribution is to assist in the care of the horses.

 

Flight of Fancy rescues, cares for, and finds new homes for abandoned exotic birds.

 

Hoofer’s Haven and Local Dog Rescue – Troy Way rescue abandoned and abused animals.

 

Since its inception, with this donation, the Foundation has donated over $39,000 to local animal support organizations and has a reserve of approximately $100,000 towards a future projects to relieve animal suffering.  The Foundation’s goals since inception was to donate annually or bi-annually about 1/3 of its fund raising and retain 2/3 of the fundraising to create a long term investment, the income from which will be used to support animal welfare organizations and to keep the memory of Keri Chase alive.
