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

 

On December 16, 2010 at 2:00PM in the lobby of City Hall, Mr. Ken Boshcoff, Trustee of The Keri Chase Foundation is pleased to award $10,000.00 to:

 

Five local registered animal welfare charities:

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

bullet

New Hope Dog RESQ - $2,000.00

bullet

North Superior People Animal Welfare  and Safety Inc. (PAWS) - $1,000.00

bullet

The Thunder Bay Therapeutic Riding Association - $1,000.00

bullet

Four local non-registered animal welfare organizations:

bullet

Hoofer’s Haven - $500.00

bullet

Local Dog Rescue – Troy Way - $500.00

bullet

Kitty Kare - $500.00

bullet

Northern Lights Dog Rescue - $500.00

 

The Thunder Bay & District Humane Society, New Hope Dog RESQ, PAWS, Northern Lights Dog Rescue, Kitty Kare and Local Dog Rescue 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.

 

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 rescue abandoned and abused animals.

 

Since its inception, with this donation, the Foundation has donated almost $50,000 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 1/2 of its fund raising and retain 1/2 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.
