As of 2017, Winnipeg Lost Dog Alert Inc. (WLDA) became a Registered Charity. What does this mean to us? It means that when you donate $5 or more to WLDA, we now get to give back to you by issuing a tax receipt for your donation.
Other than the odd fundraisers we put on, donations are an important part of our organizaiton. They are used to purchase equipment such as trail cameras, traps, microchip scanners, batteries and memory cards. They are also put towards the cost of events we are invited to plus our own events, production of awareness materials for distribution at events as well as operational expenses including insurance, postage and website expenses, etc.
We were going to purchase a larger trap, but after further discussion with the board, it has been put on hold for now. Anyone that has donated towards our trap fund and have not been contacted by us, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be glad to return your donation.
Thank you all for everything you do for the lost dogs and WLDA.
