Canada Day, July 1st, began with the annual Pancake Breakfast hosted by the Kitimat Humane Society. This is the second year they have been doing the breakfast.
“It started off really slow, last year, we had lineups galore at 7:00 Am. This morning, we never got our crowd until between 8:00 and 8:30,” said Mary-Anne Ouellete. “It’s been really busy and we’re just about sold out so we’ve had 500-600 people already.”
There were about 10 volunteers who came out to make Pancakes. The money raised goes to buy food and blankets for the animals, as well as helping to cover medical expenses. At the moment, they have about three dogs for adoption and, after transferring out a good number of cats, are down to about 50 cats, all looking for good homes.
