Sweet treats help fund local humane society

Thousands of dollars was raised locally for the Fort St. James Humane Society last month on National Cupcake Day.

Humane Societies and SPCA’s around the province celebrated National Cupcake Day on Feb. 27 and Mrs. Heibert and the David Hoy Elementary Humane Society Kids’ Club once again hosted this event in Fort St. James.

Monica Sillje of the Fort St. James Humane Society (FSJHS) said thanks to the Monster Bake Sale at David Hoy, and fantastic support from volunteers who helped bake cupcakes, collect orders from around the community, and make deliveries, an impressive $2,779.55 was raised.

“This money will help the For St. James Humane Society with hosting the Canadian Animal Assistance Team Spay and Neuter Clinic, coming to our community for the fourth year in a row, in July,” Sillje said.

“On behalf of the FSJ Humane Society and the DHE Humane Society Kids’ Club, we would like to thank Fort St. James and its outlying communities for their tremendous support!”

FSJHS is a non-profit organization whose goals are to provide medical assistance, shelter and rehabilitation to injured, abused or abandoned animals.
