The Legacy of Love Bracelets

April 17, 2019

We here at Links of Love have also felt the love and loss of a beloved fur baby. Truly the hardest part of owning a pet is having to say goodbye, so that's why we came up with an idea to help honor your pet and give back to the SPCA, so they can find fur-ever homes for the little souls that are often over looked. Taylor at the SPCA helped name this new Link of Love Called "The Legacy of Love" the bracelet is a rainbow chakra with a paw print at the end. Such a lovely way to remember your pet.

A little bit of Love goes a long way

May 9, 2019

   Update on Bear*

Bear’s medical surgery was a success! We removed three more buried quills from his forehead, tongue and eye. Although his eye is very swollen right now, he will have a full recovery. Bear is on antibiotics, eye and pain medication to keep him comfortable while he recovers.

On behalf of Bear, we want to thank all the generous animal-lovers who donated to help cover the cost of his surgeries and care on his journey to recovery. Bear has felt your love and support from all throughout Canada! Thanks to your donations, Bear is going to have a second-chance at a safe, happy and healthy life. Thank you!!

Our Enforcement team led a careful investigation and as a result, charges were laid against Bear’s previous owner under the Animal Protection Act. Further details cannot be released relating to the investigation as we do not want to compromise any court proceedings. It will take time, but with your support we will fight for justice for Bear.

While Bear is healing, he is not feeling well enough to entertain adoption interest and is not accepting applications or visitors at this time. Our veterinary team continue to monitor him closely. Once he is medically cleared, we will post him on our SPCA adoptables page.

Cookies For Cadets

May 27, 2019

FROM VIVIAN(#CadetMom):

"Well #cookiesforcadets was a success we started with 150 bags of cookies and 24 cupcakes, 1 date bread loaf and a boiled raisin cake. We sold the cookies for $1 a bag and cupcakes were sold by donation. We did a raffle for for the boiled newfie cake and date bread loaf. Big thank you to all the parents and cadets who made the deliciousness happen. Also thank you to CPo2 Madore and Po2 MacDonald- Miles for representing Maggie so well.

So many people came to me afterwards and said how wonderful the cadets did including MLA Bill Horne and MP Darrell Samson. Huge shout out to LWF Community Hall and @nick Yeomans for allowing us to peddle our cookies for cadets during wing night. And the community of Fall river for your support and a huge Maggie hug to Patrick H. Healey for getting us a table at the FRABA - Fall River and Area Business Association also thank you to Kayla Watton and Shirley Fortune Miles these two lovely ladies are not cadets or cadet parents but they wanted to help support the Maggie cadets. Sooo in saying at that we raised an total of $352 dollars. Due to venue issues (too many to mention)we were not able to sell the Links of Love to help support the cadets. So we decided to top the $352 up to $400 . We will bring in a cheque on Wednesday for $400 to help the cadets with the end of year trip.

BZ to all involved.

Let's do it again sometime. Oh and we only have 14 bags of cookies left in my freezer I will bring them in on Wednesday along with the multitude of empty containers. 🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪❤ "
