Dog Dayz are over in Langley

The Dog Dayz are over, sadly for the supporters of the Langley Animal Protection Society.

LAPS was to have held one of its annual fundraising events this weekend, with the support of Cedar Rim Nursery.

The annual party was to have raised funds for the recent Kitten Roundup, an event that saw the shelter take in a number of young cats and hand out vouchers to spay and neuter adult cats.

The project was launched earlier this summer in response to two incidents in which kittens were abandoned without being brought to the no-kill shelter in Aldergrove.

At least one kitten died after being sealed in a cardboard box in the first incident and three more escaped when they were discovered.

Ironically, all the work that went into the Kitten Roundup meant there wasn’t enough time to concentrate on ticket sales for the Dog Dayz, said Sean Baker, manager of the Patti Dale Animal Shelter.

If people still want to donate to help the Kitten Roundup, they can donate to LAPS online at www.lapsbc.ca, over the phone at 604-857-5055, or in person at the shelter at 26220 56th Ave. Baker noted that they can always used canned cat food, and use the Royal Canin brand.
