The Côte Saint-Luc Cats Committee (CSLCC) has launched its annual fundraising raffle.
Funds raised will go towards the CSLCC’s Trap, Neuter, Release and Adopt Program. There are many feral cats in the community. The CSLCC’s team of volunteers sets out to trap as many as possible, have them sterilized and then adopted or returned to the spot where they were originally found. In the latter case, efforts are made to assist the feeders in the community. The committee has also rescued a many kittens and found homes for them.
|The grand prize.|
There are some terrific prizes up for grabs. Tickets cost $15 for one; $25 for two ; and $50 for five. Two grand prizes are in the mix. First there is a two night stay at the Embassy Suites in Old Montreal (The Presidential Suite!). This package includes parking, a made to order full breakfast for two people and a welcome reception (for two). It is valued at more than $1,500. Some restrictions may apply.
