This litter of kittens were fostered by Shelly Roche who was honoured as LAPS volnteer of the year at their annual gala. These fur balls antics were viewed more than one million times at 'Tiny Kittens' web cam. They were adopted in record time.

So many furry tail endings from gala

More than 400 animal lovers raised $85,000 for LAPS at the annual gala on Nov. 2.

This year’s Langley Animal Protection Society’s gala is where furry tail endings did happen.

Around 425 guests attended the sixth annual fundraiser held at Coast Hotel and Convention Centre on Saturday, Nov. 2. With a live auction seeing items sold and resold. One dinner for 10 with Global TV’s Steve Darling was donated to the auction by Well Seasoned owner Angie Quaale and was sold and resold for $10,000.

More than $85,000 was raised, which means 436 furry tail endings were funded, said animal shelter manager Sean Baker.

The night also saw animal hero Shelly Roche honoured as volunteer of the year, for her efforts to foster kittens and bring awareness of LAPS to the world through letting their furry antics to be watched on a webcam 24/7.

Her Tiny Kittens web cam has seen more than one million hits from around the world. It has seen donations to LAPS come from as far as Japan and as near as California. It also has helped adopt out two sets of kittens and their moms in record time.

It was 10 years ago when Langley Township and City cancelled a contract with the SPCA and began a municipal-run animal shelter to take care of dogs and cats. The shelter is named after Patti Dale, a tireless volunteer dog walker and instrumental in creating the municipally run shelter and the society. She died of cancer shortly after the shelter opened.
