A dog with a huge heart

This Friday the Nelson branch of the BC SPCA will be holding a fundraiser for one of its most beloved animals.

Ariel had to undergo life-saving surgery last month.

This Friday the Nelson branch of the BC SPCA will be holding a fundraiser for one of its most beloved animals. The event will take place from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Finley’s Irish Bar and Grill, and will raise money for the life-saving surgery of Ariel, a Border Collie/Staffordshire cross who loves everyone, two or four legged.

Ariel came into the Selkirk Veterinary Hospital with a severely fractured and infected right hind leg. Unfortunately, she had not been taken for veterinary care immediately, and the only option to save her life was to amputate the leg. She has so much love life left to live and love left to give, there was really no choice but to perform the surgery.

According to Rob Andrew, the Nelson branch manager, Ariel is doing amazingly well since her surgery.

“She is just so resilient, she hasn’t really missed a beat,” he said. “She has been let down multiple times already in her short life and we owe it to her to break that cycle.”

Tickets for the event cost $10 and are available at Finley’s, Selkirk Vet, and the SPCA Adoption Center.

For your ticket, you get a burger of your choice and a beverage. In addition, there will be some talented local singers providing karaoke entertainment.

“This is a great deal, even if there were no cause attached,” said Andrew. “We encourage everyone to come by after work and stay for as long as they like.”

For more information, please contact the Nelson SPCA at 250-352-7178.
