We're pleased to announce that FE is once again supporting the Mississauga Humane Society (MHS) as its official charity in 2013.
Founded in 1999, the Mississauga Humane Society strives to find "Forever Homes" for cats and dogs regardless of their background, age, health or previous behavioural issues. They have no dedicated office or overhead: all animals are cared for by foster owners, and all of their donations go towards food, veterinary bills and other expenses.
FE was featured in the Humane Society's April 2012 Pet Chat newsletter (see page 9) -- they came to the con for a day last year and were blown away by your generosity!
Over the first three years of FE, we have raised over $12,000 for the MHS, including $8,000 last year alone! Can the troops beat it this year? We sure hope so!
We'll be running the Charity Auction throughout the convention, culminating in the voice auction on Sunday afternoon. So we'd appreciate donations items to auction! We're especially looking for artwork and costume commissions, but any other special items are welcome too. You can e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
More information about the MHS and how to support them are available on their website at www.mississaugahumanesociety.com.
