Happy New Year! As 2013 comes to a close, Kona’s Coalition would like to thank our supporters for helping us raise $20,000 to help animals in need.
We have provided emergency funding to help dozens of animals. We have turned tears of sadness into tears of joy. We have commenced working on a Yukon-wide spay-and-neuter program (working in tandem with the new Yukon government and Humane Society Yukon program), and the creation of a territorial foster network.
We plan to liaise with the Department of Education to get into the schools this spring, and see our Junior Ambassador Program get off the ground. We have worked with 40 bands to pull off the incredible Sunstroke and Moonstroke Music Festivals.
We are currently working on the first-ever, cruelty-free compassionate fashion show called ResQ, taking place on Saturday, Feb. 1, 2014. We couldn’t do what we do without the support from an army of volunteers, individual donators, local businesses, awesome bands or the local vet clinics.
Thank you for your support. We realize that finances are tight across the territory, so the fact that so many still rally in support of our animal community – well, it warms our hearts. Our mandate is simple: To improve animal welfare in the Yukon through education, advocacy, financial assistance, fostering and support. Together, we are making this happen.
This is what we have accomplished in our first nine months. We hope you will continue to support Kona’s Coalition in 2014, and witness our evolution.
On behalf of the Kona’s Coalition board, thank you!
