Chocolate Lab puckers up in Timmins fundraiser
TIMMINS -- A Chocolate Labrador dog in Timmins named Tundra, gave licks for a good cause.
Owner Jodie Millions says she wanted to do something different to raise awareness of a new pet rescue initiative in the city called ‘C&K Critters.‘
Millions set up a kissing booth at Paws and Claws where she's a manager. A minimum two dollar donation from willing participants got them kisses from Tundra, the one and a half year old pup.
"It's been fantastic, “said Millions.
"We've had quite a few people come in and just come in for the kisses so that's always amazing, and who doesn't like seeing puppies and dogs."
Colleen Genore of C&K Critters is thankful for the support.
"My best friend and I found that there was a lack of care for a lot of cats, specifically cats, but animals in general," said Genore.
"Not that we don't have phenomenal organizations like the Timmins and District Humane Society and the Northern Ontario Animal Welfare Society, but there's always going to be more because we have a lack of education about people spaying and neutering pets."
The money raised by Tundra's kissing booth will help C & K Critters take care of animals and get them spayed and neutered.
