The Spencerville TNR Stray Cats Project got a boost from resPAWnders calendar sales. The initiative has brought in approximately $5,500 for the rescue so far. 

The calendars feature members of the North Dundas Fire Department and Edwardsburgh/Cardinal Fire Department, along with cats and kittens from the rescue. 

Organizer Valerie Andruszkiewicz says it was a community effort. She noted businesses in the area helped out by sponsoring and selling the calendars. Andruszkiewicz explained printing costs were completely covered, so every dollar raised is going to the rescue.

The funds will be used to cover veterinary care and food for the cats. She says the calendars also got the word out about Spencerville TNR, resulting in adoptions. 

Andruszkiewicz noted the plan is to put together another calendar this year. For more information about the calendars, or to purchase a copy, contact Andruszkiewicz directly by emailing
