On February 24th, Saving Grace Animal Society hosted their inaugural Ties & Tails Gala at the Lacombe Memorial Centre. This event drew nearly 200 patrons who were entertained by local musician and animal advocate Reed Salmon. Additional entertainment included Plinko and a Wine Pull offering attendees the chance to win prizes and a silent auction. In total over $11,000 was raised throughout the evening by animal loving guests.

Saving Grace Animal Society, headquartered in Alix with a Farm Sanctuary situated near Stettler, operates with a commitment to rescuing and rehabilitating animals of all sizes. Their impact is noteworthy, having provided assistance to over 2,000 animals in 2023, with an uptick in 2024, having already aided over 255 animals.

The organization’s vision includes the establishment of a veterinary clinic adjacent to their shelter as the rescue is incurring significant annual expenses nearing one million dollars in veterinary expenses to date. The proposed clinic will enhance the capacity for animal rescue and medical care.

During the gala, attendees were reminded of the profound legacy of Jack Donald, a revered figure in Central Alberta. In a heartfelt gesture honoring his memory, Warren and Kaedyn Wessel from Tundra Petroleum generously contributed $50,000 to Saving Grace’s Vet Clinic fund. This benevolent act underscores the spirit of community and solidarity, embodying Jack’s enduring commitment to building resilient and compassionate communities.

In conclusion, Saving Grace Animal Society’s inaugural gala stands as a testament to the unwavering dedication of its supporters and the profound impact of collective goodwill.
