In Appreciation…

On January 26, 2012 4500 lbs of dog food and treats were delivered to the Colville Valley Animal Sanctuary storage unit.  Upon receiving a request from a sanctuary volunteer directly following the tragic fire in November, Del Monte Foods opened their hearts and graciously donated over two tons of food.  A special thank you to Carole Slade of Del Monte Foods for giving the shelter a truly wonderful gift.  Also, we would like to thank Jessica Patton of Enumclaw, WA who put the sanctuary in contact with Transmark Logistics, and of course a big thank you to Patrick Allen of Transmark Logistics who offered free transportation from Del Monte’s west coast warehouse in Lathrop, CA to the Colville Valley Animal Sanctuary!

here's our food arriving on a cold and overcast NE Washington day.

that's a lot of food!

safely tucked away in our storage unit, where is won't remain for long!

This whole venture took alot of time and effort to organise not to mention actually getting the food all the way from California to NE Washington! The volunteer who organised all of this would like to remain anonymous but she knows who she is, we just want her to know how very much she is appreciated!

We are happy to report that the food is already being put to good use, within the sanctuary as well as without. We are providing food to a man who is feeding it to a stray dog in hopes of catching him and bringing him into the sanctuary where we can care for him and find him a home.


About colvillevalleyanimalsanctuary

The Colville Valley Animal Sanctuary is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of abandoned, neglected, and otherwise homeless companion animals. We provide both crisis and long-term sheltering, medical care, fostering, and adoption services - all with the goal of placing our animals permanently in safe and loving homes. We spay and neuter all of the animals in our care and actively promote, through financial donations and community support, the effort to reduce the number of unwanted animals in Stevens County. By example and through education, we promote and advance the values of responsible pet ownership and the humane treatment of animals.
