Fundraising News 2018
A number of successful fundraisers this year with our 2nd Furball on the Beach kicking the 2018 off in March. Raising $36,000 for animal welfare, we showed the Sunny Coast how to party at sunset on the beach. Many memories made and much fun had. Watch this space as we are about to announce our major 40th Birthday celebration event which will replace the Furball on the Beach in 2019. Furball on the Beach will be back in 2020 though:)
The SCARS & 4 Paws Walk for Awareness was also a roaring success with over 200 people and their dogs turning up to raise awareness of the plight of rescue cats and dogs on the Sunny Coast. Loads of great stalls and nearly $4,000 raised for our rescues.
Santa Paws was a wonderful success again this year with over 70 families bringing their pets out to sit on Santa's lap! We raised around $3,000 on the day too:) A wonderful day and so lovely to see old and new friends and ex SCARS cats and dogs. A massive THANKS to Trudy, our volunteer photographer, who makes the best Santa photos on the Sunny
Coast. We look forward to seeing you all again at the next Santa Paws day in 2019.
Thanks to all of our volunteers who turn up and out for these events, to help keep the wheels turning and ensure the public and their furbabies are well looked after, no matter what the occasion. Getting out into the community is so important to our SCARS cats and dogs in helping to get them adopted and also helping us to get support throughout the year. It never ceases to amaze us how many Sunny Coasters don't even know about their local animal refuge, and when they see us out in public are so excited and grateful for what we do. Want to join in and help us out? Pop to our Want to Volunteer page on the website.
Our "All I want for Christmas" appeal is on now - call up, pop out in donate on line to help make the season a festive one for our cats and dogs too!
And again date claimer Sunday January 20th for our 40th birthday party at SCARS. Put it in your diary:) Keep your eyes peeled for our other SCARS 40th Birthday Celebration events planned for 2019.
