Bide Awhile was moved by the loss and devastation in Fort McMurray.

As a humane animal shelter, we wanted to help with the care and relocation of the animals that were displaced. We have donated $1000 to the Edmonton Humane Society to aid the relief work for animals in the area. The Humane Society has been taking the lead in coordinating the efforts of rescue volunteers, sheltering animals and arranging for other services and supplies. Since we cannot be there to physically help, we wanted to provide needed funds for the work.

The next Chase the Ace will be on June 30, 2016 at Pilot's Pub in Woodside. The Jackpot will be $4,055.+  




The Pet of the Month Contest entry deadline has been extended to June 30, 2016.

  • Vigorously promoting spaying and neutering.
  • Managing all our resources and contributions in a responsible manner       Read more
