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 ace has been found!
The ace of spades was drawn on October 20th by Agnes Chaisson. She took home $1087. Stay tuned for updates on our next game.
