My Self Storage of Carleton Place, Ontario, Canada, is partnering with Dickie’s Cause 4 Paws Rescue, a nonprofit cat-rescue organization, to host a multi-family garage sale tomorrow at the storage facility. The event at 337 Townline Road, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., will include four units containing a variety of items including furniture, according to the source. All proceeds will benefit the charity, which rescues about 100 cats annually.
“There will be many amazing deals and like-new items,” said Shelly Dickie, who launched the charity in 2006. The volunteer-based rescue operates a trap-neuter-release and re-home program that aims to take feral cats and kittens off the streets. All of the cats are spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, and vaccinated. Those that can be rehabilitated are available for adoption. Cats that can’t become house pets are released back to their colony or relocated to safe barns.
The program took in 50 adult cats and 87 kittens last year. All of the kittens were adopted, and all but six of the adult cats were placed or relocated to safe barns.
Dickie’s Cause 4 Paws Rescue accepts donations via [email protected].
My Self Storage opened in 2012 and comprises 35,000 square feet of storage space. It offers a variety of unit sizes.
