Freedom House photoshoot raises $1,400 for Saving Grace Animal Sanctuary

Freedom House’s Santa Claus and the Grinch photo shoot fundraiser raised more than $1,400 for Saving Grace Animal Sanctuary.

Freedom House, a Red Deer kennel and dog daycare, had more than 140 dogs brought to the annual fundraiser on Nov. 30.

“We love to have fun with dogs and involve them in helping out a canine-related cause,” said Freedom House co-owner Kerrie Meadows. “This year was a huge success and the money couldn’t go to a better cause.”

Saving Grace Animal Sanctuary, near Erskine, is a place for animals to find love, attention and medical care to allow them to live their lives in peace.

“We love what they do and what they are about, so anything we can do to help them out is well worth it,” Meadows said.
