Bloor Animal Hospital Gives Back – Help us help Hope and Shelter bring a Syrian family to Canada

By | Our Blog | No Comments

From January 29 to the 31st Bloor Animal Hospital will be holding a “nail trim-a-thon” and bake sale to raise money for Hope and Shelter (hopeandshelter.com).  Hope and Shelter is a group of friends local to the Bloor West area, that are committed to making a difference for at least one Syrian family by providing sponsorship and resettlement support.

The group is working with Humanity First, a humanitarian relief organization that is helping Hope and Shelter to sponsor and help resettle the family.  They are in the process of being matched with a refugee family that is set to arrive in March.  Once matched, they are responsible for arranging funds, setting up housing and basic support over the family’s first twelve months in Canada.  Their goal is to raise $30,000 to cover these expenses.  At this time, they are over two thirds of the way to achieving their goal!

We are inspired by Hope and Shelter’s commitment to this cause and feel terribly for the many Syrians who have been forced from their homes and life they had known, and have been through the unimaginable.

In a remarkable addition to our efforts, a member of the  Halsall family foundation (https://torontofoundation.ca/fund/halsall-family-foundation ) , heard about our involvement was moved. They have agreed to match all funds collected through our event!

Please come out with your furry family members and join us for our event help us make a difference.  We are asking for a minimum donation of $15 per nail trim, 100% of all proceeds will be donated to Hope and Shelter.  Appointments for nail trims can be made in advance at (416) 767-5817.

Hope to see you all there!
