Four Chemainus businesses are coming together to help the SPCA this Christmas.

Four Chemainus businesses are coming together to help the SPCA this Christmas.

The owners of the Crafty Cuppa Cafe, the Golden Hanger, the Pottery Store and the Wine Den on Willow Street are inviting the public to join them in donating to less fortunate animals.

From now until Dec. 18, each of these shops will have a decorated hamper which they hope to fill with new, unwrapped gifts and non-perishable food items for pets or money. When full,  hampers will be delivered to the Cowichan and District Branch of the BC SPCA.

“Every day, we see the suffering of homeless, injured, neglected or abused animals,” SPCA representatives stated in a press release. “Your gift will help us to continue our life-saving work providing the care and protection they desperately need.”

For every item donated to a shop’s hamper, you will be given an entry form, and you will have a chance to win that shop’s in-store prize. Prize draws will take place Dec.18, and winners will be notified by phone. Hampers will be delivered Dec. 19.
