Mission mayor, council locked up

A fundraiser for the Fraser Valley Humane Society had local dignitaries raise bail money

Mission’s politicians, firefighters and local business people found themselves locked up today (Aug. 26) as part of the Fraser Valley Humane Society’s inaugural Caged for Cats fundraiser.

The event runs today until 4 p.m. and the public is invited to come out and make a donation.

This is a family-friendly fundraiser that features special guests who are locked up with the cats at the shelter, in hopes that they raise enough money to bail themselves out.

All of the proceeds will go towards the medical expenses the society has recently incurred to help two injured cats, Loki and Jewels.

Loki, a male, and Jewels, a female, have both needed expensive medical interventions so that they can be adopted.

In addition, there are a number of others cats at the shelter who have upcoming procedures.

The shelter is located at 33103 N. Railway Ave. in Mission.

Anyone who wants to make a donation but can’t attend the event on Aug. 26 is welcome to phone in a bail donation by calling 604-820-2977.
