This blog will keep you up-to-date about our shift from Shake-a-Paw towards our new direction of helping pets of domestic violence victims get shelter.
YAY! Yesterday, we received official notice that Mary Ellen Humane Education Society has been granted charitable status by the Canada Revenue Agency. What this means is a milestone in our work to get recognized as helping youth and dogs in our community. It also means we can reciprocate donations with tax receipts! If you wish to make a donation using a credit card or paypal, please click our MAKE A DONATION tab at the top of this page.
