Tambra is taking the Polar Plunge!

Posted: Saturday January 21, 2017 4:44 PM

Please support me in the BEL ROTARY POLAR PLUNGE.........BRRRRR!!!!!

Dear family and friends,

I'm proudly announcing my participation in the POLAR PLUNGE in support of the Lakefield Animal Welfare Society.

You can help me achieve my goal of $1000 to help this worthwhile and essential cause by making an online credit card donation. Using the link below, you can securely pledge your support.

Please visit my page to donate:, you will find my name, Tambra Collins under people who are jumping.

Donations can also be made at LAWS. I would also be able to pick up donations if you can not donate on line or get to LAWS.

I can't tell you how greatful LAWS is for your support. During 2016 over 800 cats and close to 70 dogs came to the safety, care and love at LAWS. All animals receive all medical treatment they require, have vaccines brought up to dat and are spayed/neutered. And of course receive love and cuddles until they are adopted to their new fur-ever family.

LAWS does not receive any formal government funding, zero. Our doors remain open only because of the generosity of our amazing community.

I hope you will pledge your support today. Thank you so very much!

Many, many thanks,
Tambra Collins and all of the animals, staff, volunteers and Board of Directors with LAWS

My name is LYRA and I am celebrating!! Believe or not, I have been at LAWS since OCTOBER 14th, 2015. Even though I am beautiful, I just kept being overlooked. As many of you know, LAWS is a wonderful place, but after a year, it was definitely time to dream of a bigger and better life. Imagine my surprise when Dianne came over to meet was LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT!!! Diane chose me!!! We are off to begin our life together!!! Dreams do come true!

On Sunday February 12, the Lakefield Animal Welfare Society (LAWS) is excited to share the LOVE!! ????????
The legendary band Max Mouse and the Gorillas will hit the stage to raise money for local animal welfare.  This Valentine's fundraiser is an all ages event that will take place at the Red Dog Tavern on Hunter Street in Peterborough from 3 to 6 PM.  This promises to be an exciting afternoon of music, dancing, sharing stories and fun. Tickets are $10 (available at LAWS) and or $12 at the door. Children under 12 can get in by bringing a donation of pet food or supplies. Light snacks will be provided and representatives from LAWS will be available to talk about the organization and accept  donations. The public is encouraged to share their own stories of animal adoptions, their pictures and experiences.
This will be a wonderful gathering of people who love animals and who want to share the love. This event is open to everyone - couples, singles, families - and anyone who wants to come out and share and hear great music and dance. All proceeds from the event will be directed to animal care costs at LAWS. For more information please contact Mary Warner at 705-652-8006
