Our thanks to all the vendors who are joining us, and who have generously donated prizes for the event.”
“Our annual Holiday Market event truly makes the season the most wonderful time of the year for our rescue, for local businesses, for pet parents, and of course, for dogs looking for their forever homes,” says Jodi Lane, K9Crusaders’ founder, “With so many great things packed into this dog friendly event, it is definitely one to mark on your calendar!”
Established in 2013, K9Crusaders is a Northumberland County based rescue which helps rehabilitate and rehome dogs, many transferred from high kill shelters in Quebec. A not-for-profit all-breed rescue, K9Crusaders is one hundred percent volunteer run and one hundred percent funded by donation. Many of the rescued animals in care are seniors and those with high medical needs. Some of them remain with the rescue as compassionate care fosters to live out their days surrounded by love and supported medically by the rescue.
K9Crusaders is always looking for volunteers and fosters, as well as donations of both funds and supplies. Visit their website www.k9c.ca for details about how you can get involved .
