From left to right:,Debbie Knabke, Sue Brown and Troy Giesbrecht, organized the Pet Safe Coalition Society of Canada Fundraising Gala at Wings on Jan. 25. The event raised just over $3,000 for the local non-profit. The Pet Safe Coalition’s mandate is to assist animals during personal or large-scale emergencies and disasters, says Knabke. Throughout the 2017 wildfires, the coalition rescued, sheltered and eventually reunited more than 1,000 animals with their owners, evacuees from the fires. When Nazko flooded last spring, the group once more jumped to action. And when the fires struck a bit closer to home last summer, the coalition worked to help locals execute their own animal evacuation plans. Ronan O’Doherty photo
