Yesterday I was informed of an event taking place at the Cornwall Square, a fundraiser for animal rescues, so I went over to check it out. This great informative event is on again today, so if you’re looking for something to do, head over to the Cornwall Square from 11am to 4am to check it out. Maybe you will even come home with a Fur Baby if you are interested in adopting!
The event organizer, Laurie St. Pierre, Administrator of Cornwall Square, was the first person I met. She told me that she put this event together, in the Marketplace on the first floor, to draw some attention to Animal Rescues in the area as well as some wonderful vendors, many of who were selling articles relating to pets. It is also a way to bring people into the Shopping Mall which is now locally owned so I’m sure you will be seeing a lot more community connections made here from now on.
In front of Laurie were baskets of goodies, some donated by the vendors and some by the stores in Cornwall Square. Come and purchase a ticket for a chance to win one of these with proceeds going to the animal rescues present.
Inside the MarketPlace, there was plenty of activity especially around the animal adoption areas.
Making my way around, I visited with:
CATTRAP, Lending out traps and carriers. For more info contact Mary Jane (seen in photo above) at 613-362-8059 and check out the art at her booth. $5 a painting with proceeds going to help with the organization.

Sorry the 2 plants at Roy and Cher’s booth were already adopted/purchased by me with one gifted to my mother but there are plenty more pressies to choose from at these wonderful vendors’ booths and as I mentioned, if you are looking for a pet to adopt, you may be able to bring home a Fur Baby and give it a Fur-ever home!!!! The show is on from 11am to 4pm today…
Wishing you all a “Happy Valentine’s Day” tomorrow!
