A fundraiser this weekend at the Winnipeg Humane Society will aim to collect donations to care for an influx of animals making their way to the shelter.

The annual Paws for the Season craft and bake sale on December 2 hopes to raise $10,000.

“In the past seven weeks, the WHS has received over 1,300 animals,” said WHS CEO Bill McDonald. “This time of year is especially taxing because as the weather gets colder, more and more animals get abandoned in the cold and wind up at the WHS.”

“Whether or not you attend Paws for the Season, even considering the WHS when thinking about your charitable giving will be a huge help.”

Paws for the Season features locally-made crafts and tasty baked goods, as well as holiday music entertainment, fun activities for kids, a tree lighting ceremony at 2 p.m., and the appearance of a very special guest.
