BIG THANK YOU
 

National Volunteer Week offers us a wonderful opportunity to thank all of the volunteers who contribute their time and efforts to save animals’ lives.

 

We wish to publicly thank several volunteers who have provided a particular, valid contribution:

 

Corinne Thaw, one of the co-founders of ORA, who, despite having undergone a radical cancer surgery and debilitating chemotherapy in 2010, has continued taking care of ORA’s dogs: cleaning after them, grooming them, feeding them healthy food, and walking them for one to two hours a day in forested areas to ensure their happiness and well-being.

 

Edna Gharakhanian, who has always been available on short notice to help at fundraising events, even changing, when needed, her work schedule. Edna has also personally contributed to sterilize stray cats and, she has prepared numerous gourmet dinners for ORA’s cats and dogs!

 

Young and Kay Ko, who own a cleaning company, and although overwhelmed with work themselves, still find the time, twice a week, to clean the cat areas for us at ORA's residential sanctuary.

 

Joyce Luckasawitch, who fulfills several hours of volunteer work every Saturday: cleaning, feeding the cats, bathing and walking the dogs, and doing many other necessary tasks around ORA.

 

Clara Speer, who is doing an enormous amount of work raising awareness for ORA’s needs through social media venues, and is presently fundraising for the rebuilding of the much needed cat den, destroyed this past winter in an odd accident.

 

Renate Simon, who has been actively working on ORA’s current website (http://www.ora-animalsrescue.org), maintaining, promptly adding and updating the content, as needed.

Cheryl Benson
,owner of Dog Gone Walking, who raised $320 each for ORA and fellow rescue agency, BC Rescue, through the sale of Rescue Chocolate.
 

Although unnamed, we thank all the many other volunteers that, either sporadically or on regular basis, volunteer by helping at events, volunteer with office duty, volunteer by fostering cat and dogs, volunteer by grooming dogs and volunteer with any other of the many large and small tasks needed to carry on the work of rescuing animals: caring for the un-adoptable ones, educating and advocating for animal rights, and promoting animal welfare in the Greater Toronto Area and beyond.
