LETTERS: Thanks from the Penticton BCSPCA

Once again, thank you from all the animals at the South Okanagan Similkameen BCSPCA.

On behalf of the South Okanagan Similkameen BCSPCA I would like to take this opportunity to thank those merchants who kindly allow us to place our donation tins in their place of business. Tins are sometimes stolen but we stress it is not the fault of the merchant but merely a sign of the times.

We would also like to thank our dedicated volunteers who maintain the tins.  We are fortunate to have tins placed in Summerland, Penticton, Okanagan Falls, Oliver, Osoyoos, Keremeos and Princeton.

All of the funds collected are used to directly to help abused, neglected and unwanted animals here in the South Okanagan Similkameen.  It may seem like just a little loose change or a bill, but it all adds up to make a big difference to the animals.  We are still accepting pennies. No need to roll them, we have all the supplies.

If you would like to have a tin at your place of business, please contact me at the SPCA 250-493-0136 and I would be happy to make arrangements.  I am generally at the shelter Friday afternoons but staff could pass along a message.

Once again, thank you from all the animals at the South Okanagan Similkameen BCSPCA.
