t"FOR THE LOVE OF ANIMALS" fundraiser was the brainchild of Darlene Royle from Belleoram who donated $2010.00 to the Exploits Valley SPCA. We would like to offer a heartfelt thanks to her for all her effort and a thank you to all who supported her walk. Darlene tells the following story in her own words.
"On the first of July I decided to do a fundraiser for the Exploits Valley SPCA called, "For The Love Of Animals". I decided to do this because over a number of years I have captured stray kittens and taken them to the SPCA where I was always welcomed warmly.
I decided to walk from Belleoram to English Hr. West which is roughly around 10 miles. With the help of my daughter Felicity, we went to as many homes as we could for sponsors. I posted notices in the stores in the area, and posted it on facebook and everyone I met I told them of my plans. It was so overwhelming the response that I got. People welcomed me into their homes, they shared their stories about their past animals and the ones they have now and how some were animals adopted from the SPCA. You could hear the love in peoples voices when they talked about their pets.
On July 15, the day of my walk, Felicity drove the car in front of me and I walked and got some jogging in as well. At that time we raised $1385.00. To my surprise, after I walked and posted the amount raised, people started messaging me from away saying they would sponsor me and I had a message from my sister-in-law Erica who lives in Ont, told me she showed my poster to her parents and they posted it at their work and from them and my family she brought home $480.00 to add to it. After I received all the money from the sponsors the final total is $2010.00. When I started this fundraiser I was thinking if I could get 2 or 3 hundred dollars for them that would be great but this went far beyond great.
I am hoping to have another fundraiser next year but this time with a lot of walkers and pets involved.
To all the people that help make this fundraiser a great success a BIG THANK YOU, without your help this wouldn't have been possible. This surely is "FOR THE LOVE OF ANIMALS".

They raised $795.80 plus an amazing amount of supplies for the shelter. A big thank you to the students, staff, and parents for your kindness and generosity.
tI am sending along a pic of the kids who raised over $200 last summer and brought food and other supplies to the SPCA. I have been meaning to email this and always seemed to keep forgetting! You'll probably remember Karlee Warren, Sarah Warren and Peter Savoury of Roberts Arm (ages 6-8) who started Doggy Day Care and did various fundraisers for the SPCA. I was asked to send along the picture some time ago.

Learning by Doing! The grades 4 & 5 Religious Education class at JWA decided to become Christmas helpers and learn the spirit of giving by donating to the Grand Falls-Windsor chapter of the SPCA. Teacher Janet Loveless had a member of the society on speaker phone with her class who was told that the SPCA accepted food, toys, cleaners and cash donations - over $100.00 in cash came in plus the food and other items, all which will be taken to the SPCA by Joan Poole. Well done, children, a good way to pay it forward: they have received much in their young lives and now are repaying it to others.
