Everyday heroes, cats team up to raise money for rescue

Local firefighters pulled through in a big way for the Spencerville TNR Stray Cats Project. Members of the North Dundas Fire Department and Edwardsburgh/Cardinal Fire Department took part in a photoshoot with cats and kittens from the rescue. The images are being used in a calendar, which will bring in funds for Spencerville TNR. 

Valerie Andruszkiewicz, who volunteers at the rescue, spearheaded the initiative. She says the goal is to sell 1,000 resPAWnders calendars, at $10 a pop, to raise $10,000. Sponsors are still needed to cover printing costs. You can sponsor a page for $210. 

Andruszkiewicz says the calendar is a community project, with everyone coming together to support the rescue. She noted photographer Wendy James volunteered her time to do the shoot.  

Spencerville TNR is currently housing around 60 kittens and 20 adult cats. Founder Cindy Cere says $10,000 will go a long way when it comes to veterinary costs.

Andruszkiewicz says Cere runs the rescue almost single-handedly and she deserves the help. 

The calendars are scheduled to go to print at the beginning of September and should be ready by the end of the month. The plan is to host a signing event with the firefighters.
