REPORTING · 10th July 2014
The Kitimat Humane Society was holding a bottle sorting night at the Looking for Love Animal Shelter on Sunday, July 6th. The shelter has been receiving donations of bottles from the Kitimat Modernization Project and Kitimat LNG at a rate of about $5000 a month, but they cannot keep up to the steady stream of bottles.
To organize the night, Maryann Ouellet, Shelter Manager, got in touch with Serena Germuth. Germuth got the word out and workers from Bechtel, the Delta Spirit Lodge, DL Baker and many others to come out and lend a hand.
The night brought in $1119. All the bottles together are expected to bring in $20,000. Ouellet expressed they have been able to use the money they have received so far to spay a majority of the cats in the shelter. They have around 56 cats in the shelter after shipping a number of them out. The workers also brought in linins to help with the bedding issues at the Shelter.
Right now, one of the projects which is being built at the Animal Shelter is the construction of a Rabbit Hutch to at the back of the lot. There are plans to have an open house once it is complete.
The sorting will continue again this coming Sunday from 7-9 there is room for volunteers to come and lend a hand for a great cause.
Hard working volunteers get the bottles ready to be bagged
This represents 3 weeks of bottles. The workers at the Animal Shelter are sorting every day.
