Servus has recently entered into a three-year partnership with the Central Alberta Humane Society, an animal care and humane education centre located in Red Deer, as the title sponsor of their annual Garage Sale for Shelter event.
Central Alberta Humane Society's garage sale started about 20 years ago as a small fundraiser run by volunteers, to now, one of the largest Garage Sales in Central Alberta raising thousands of dollars for shelter animals each year. This event recruits more than 100 dedicated volunteers over a three-week period to sort, organize and price items donated by the community. Over 5,000 attendees shop the three-day garage sale event. This event is a win for everybody, the community is able to find great low cost items and support the shelter through the donation of recycled items.
The Humane Society relies on the funds generated from this event to be able to provide the care the animals need and deserve, all year long. Many of these animals need immediate veterinary care and surgery in order to survive. The local community also benefits from education and outreach programs such as the society's free Humane Education, provided to hundreds of schools and groups, as well as the K9 Pet Therapy program in senior homes, hospitals and schools.
