Our very first 5km Dog Walk Fundraiser for Animal Adoption of Flamborough – Stride for Strays was an overwhelming success. The weather was gorgeous, although a bit windy. We had a great turn-out at both the walk and the Open House.
We surpassed our goal and raised almost $6000!
At the top of my list of appreciation are all of our clients and residents of the Clappison Community who donated to the cause as well as participated in the walk. We were very happy to see everyone and their dogs enjoying themselves.
A very special thanks goes to Bonnie Adlam. Bonnie donated $2500 on behalf of her sister, Sandy Ward, who passed away from cancer last year. Sandy was an avid cat lover and would be very happy to see the work that is done for the stray cats by Clappison Animal Hospital and Animal Adoptions of Flamborough.
