WHO WE ARE
Kinsmen Club of Saskatoon, Britebox Storage Co along with Handy Special Events would love to invite you to one Saskatoon’s most unique events, Purses For Paws Luncheon. This extended lunch will begin with an hour of touring and browsing over 100 new and gently used designer handbags which include designer, vintage, casual, evening and whimsical - something for everyone's taste. You may even find a "Murse" for that special man in your life! You won’t be browsing empty-handed as a refreshing cocktail provided by local artisans awaits you upon your entrance. Whether you’re there to browse or shop there’s no limit to the bags you can acquire, it could be a new addition to your collection or maybe a Christmas present for friends or family - we won’t judge!
Remember, all proceeds from this event go directly to New Hope Dog Rescue who work tirelessly to help un-wanted, abandoned and abused dogs find loving homes. We’re making it easy to feel good about shopping! After the silent auction portion is complete, we invite you to join us for lunch.
We promise to have another hour full of delicious food, great prize give-aways and most importantly you have a chance to cuddle some of New Hope's furry friends! Some may even be looking for their furr-ever homes. Once lunch is complete we welcome you to stay and mingle for as long as you like. If you need to jet back to the office we will have your bags ready and waiting for your checkout.
Please join us in the second annual Purses For Paws - the only event where leaving with another woman’s purse is encouraged!
WHY WE ARE DOING THIS
New Hope Dog Rescue (NHDR) is a registered non-profit and foster-based organization that has been rescuing and re-homing dogs in need since 2003. NHDR partners with other rescue organizations that travel to remote areas of the province to remove unwanted dogs from over-populated areas. Many dogs coming from remote areas have little to no animal control services. Medical needs can encompass issues like mange, parasites, gun shot wounds, broken bones and/or
In the first year (2003) 29 dogs were adopted into loving homes, last year (2020) 289 dogs found their furr-ever homes. One average NHDR will have between 60-80 dogs in their care at any given time, sometimes this can reach as high as 100.
Over the years NHDR has developed a network of over 100 volunteers who assist in tasks ranging from fostering, co-ordinating & providing transportation, dog handling & training, vet care and fundraisers & organizing community events.
Since the organization was founded, New Hope has found loving homes for over 3602 dogs!
