LETTER: Thanks for the support towards rescues

I want to thank the West Shore, Sooke, Metchosin, Highlands and Victoria communities for your support over the last nine years with my own brought-to-life Year Round Bottle Drive for Animal Rescue. Due to medical reasons I have had to resign from the bottle drive and slow down and smell the flowers.

In nine years I have met some absolutely wonderful human beings and critters, and have had the pleasure bonding with many. In the nine years of raising funds with the bottle donations I have been able to bring in on my own close to $70,000. All the details are listed on my website cookiescrittercare.com of who and where the money goes to.

I do have a replacement who is taking on my bottle drive and collecting donations for her rescue called Su Casa Rescue. Please call Alana at 250-380-8324 for pick-ups. I still have my accounts open at the four bottle depots – Alpine being one and the three Return-It Depots downtown – under the account named Cookies Critter Care. You can still add your bottles and the money will go to the rescue.

Thank you so much for your support towards the rescues with your bottle donations, you have made a huge difference.

Just to note, my business Cookies Critter Care is still up and growing strong. I won’t be going anywhere.
