Ride for Paws

The Gorilla Cup
What a great day we had at Seeley’s Bay on Sunday, August 28th at The Gorilla Cup. It was the 5th year for The Gorilla Cup organized by Marco McRae in memory of his Dad Leon. Marco was wearing a shirt in memoriam of his dad and what better way can a son honor his father other than by doing what he loved, and recognize his love for animals.
The Gorilla Cup has donated to other non-profit organizations in the past and this year approached us about making a donation to Sandy Pines.
The event was very well organized by Marco with help from his wife, family and friends and we met a lot of wonderful people who came out that day in support.
Many, many thanks to Marco as unofficially a record $4,907.40 was raised and we sincerely Thank You for your donation as it will go a long way to help us help the animals in need.
Mercy Mission for a Merganser
This is the x-ray we took of the Merganser. It shows the hook in the esophagus. You can also see parts of a hook getting broken down in the gizzard.
Here she is back home again at 12.30 am today! She has a good chance now to live and be free again.
This is the hook and line they removed from the esophagus.
Third Annual Golf Tournament
The 3rd annual golf tournament at the Colonnade Golf & Country Club was a hole in one!

Trophies were handed out to the Top Ladies, Men’s and Mixed Teams. There was also a trophy for the Ladies and Men’s Longest Drive.

Baby Shower Success!
We now have the final tally from the Baby Shower and we are absolutely thrilled! The net raised is $17,373.00 and together with all the food stuffs and other goods brought for our “Donation Bin” (amounting to approximately $2,213.00) we raised an astounding $19,586.00. The money raised and the items donated will go toward daily care of the animals, veterinary care, medications and needed hospital equipment.
We couldn’t have done it without the tremendous support of our Major Sponsors, the generous donations and participation of other supporters, and everyone who joined us on a cold, blustery day to raise money for the Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre. Last but not least, a huge thank you to our wonderful volunteers who worked long hours before, during and after the Baby Shower to showcase what Sandy Pines does, and how proud of it we are.
We deeply thank each and every one of you for your generosity and support.
