The Lyndhurst Feral Cat Project (LFCP) held its second annual online auction in March to kick off the Gananoque & District Humane Society’s Cupcake Month - a fundraising blitz for this local, volunteer run, no-kill shelter.
With the help of many local artists, businesses and animal-loving donors, over 100 items were sold, raising $2100 and surpassing this year’s goal by $100. The auction took place on Facebook and allowed people to bid by commenting on photos of the items.
Both groups would like to thank all donors, bidders and organizers for making this year’s auction a success. LFCP is very happy to have reached their goal and look forward to a third annual auction next March.
“We couldn’t do what we do without the help and support of the Gananoque & District Humane Society. We’re so appreciative and are happy to give back what we can by raising money with this auction,” said Stephanie Etherington, chair of LFCP.
The Lyndhurst Feral Cat Project started as a trap/neuter/vaccinate/release program in Lyndhurst and has expanded to encompass an outreach program offering assistance with stray and feral cats outside the local area. Etherington explains, “We work closely with GDHS and have also connected with other local rescues with the belief that together, we can do more.”
