Heart of Niagara Animal Rescue recently secured additional sponsors for its "Cruisin On The Canal" fundraiser planned for Saturday, June 14. In addition to major sponsors Blackwinds Pet Supplies and Lockport Outdoor Store, Heart of Niagara welcomes The Village Bake Shoppe of Lewiston as the dessert sponsor and All-Ways Warm Stove and Chimney as a "friends and family" sponsor.
Information on the event and how to purchase tickets by mail or through PayPal is available online at www.heartofniagara.org. The $35 "Cruisin" ticket includes a one-hour canal cruise provided by Lockport Locks and Erie Canal Cruises, a light dinner buffet (including roast beef on weck, Buffalo chicken wings, pizza, side dishes, coffee and dessert), entertainment with the Caribbean Extravaganza Steel Drum Band, a cash bar, door prizes and auctions.
"Cruisin' On The Canal," like all HON events and appearances, will raise necessary funds for the continuation of the group's work in saving animals - and go toward HON owning its own building. A central HON location will expedite the adoption process by providing a place for the public to view animals, staff and volunteer training sessions, dog behavioral training and volunteer meetings.
Heart of Niagara is a not-for-profit companion animal rescue organization based in Niagara County. Its mission is to protect the health and welfare of abandoned, unwanted and homeless animals. Volunteers have adopted out 170 animals to date and operate solely on donations and the generosity and support of the public.
