Help Rescued Animals In Need!

Thanksgiving Gala

Dear Friends: Due to circumstances we could not anticipate, we will be cancelling our Gala and postponing it to late winter/spring. All those of you who bought tickets will get their cheques back within the next few days, together with a thank you gift, the book “About Canada: Animal Rights”, by John Sorenson. Hope to see you next year. Postpone does not mean no Gala! Thank you for your support!

Pound Rescue invites our supporters, animal lovers and fellow animal rescuers to celebrate Thanksgiving dinner with us on October 11, 2014 at 6:00 pm in the Community Hall in DeWinton (7 min south of Calgary).

Our guest speaker will be Dr. John Sorenson who is a Professor of Sociology at Brocks University.  He specializes in animal rights, anti-racism and globalization.

Reserve the night and give thanks with us. Together we work for a more gentle, more peaceful world for humans and animals alike and this is something to be grateful for!

Dress code: Semi formal. Tickets are $100; early bird special $80 (prior to Sept 15th).  Please RSVP by mail prior to October 1st;  Pound Rescue Box 1446 Okotoks AB T1S 1B4. Seats are limited so RSVP as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
