New Westminster Animal Shelter Receives Donation of Cat Condos from Local Business

New Westminster – The New Westminster Animal Shelter has received a generous and much needed donation of four new Cat Condos to comfortably house their feline residents waiting to be adopted. The donation was made by Shop 4 Paws Thrift Store located at 615 Twelfth Street, a New Westminster business that donates a percentage of all profits to the City Animal Shelter.

“We are constantly looking for ways to improve our facilities and make the animals as comfortable as possible during their stay at the shelter,” said Mayor Wayne Wright. “We would like to extend our gratitude to Shop 4 Paws for their commitment to our city’s needy animals.”

The cat condos are specifically designed for animal shelters and incorporate separate litter and hiding units as well as sleep and exercise areas which help promote healthier animals and increase adoptions. The four new cat condos cost $5000 in total.

“I’m an animal lover, so I’m proud that I’m able to help lost or stray animals as they are transitioning to new homes,” said Roni-Lyn Sanders, owner of the Shop 4 Paws Thrift Store. “Our decision to partner with the City comes from a desire to contribute positively to my community and make a difference.”

The New Westminster Animal Shelter provides a safe temporary home for animals in need, offering medical and emotional support. Community support is vital to the success of the shelter, whether through volunteers, donations, or providing services, and ensures the animals get the help they need. If you would like to make a donation to the New Westminster Animal Shelter, please call 604-519-2008. All proceeds from monetary donations go towards veterinary care for our animals.
