The Fernie Pets Society Book & Bake sale was hosted at The Arts Station on Saturday, May 9.

The annual fundraiser saw a silent auction for beautifully confected baked goods and dozens of great books for sale to raise money for the Spay and Neuter Incentive Program (SNiP).

“On average, it costs $100 to get a cat fixed. Through our fundraiser last year, we managed to spay and neuter 10 cats,” said Pets Society volunteer Tanya Carre who added reception to the fundraiser so far had been great.

To date, 175 cats have been fixed in the City of Fernie and offers a 100 per cent subsidy on the spaying or neutering of feral/stray cats and vouchers for fostered cats.
