Saga Humane Society would like to give our heartfelt Thank You and gratitude to everyone involved who came and supported our fundraising event Princesses for Paws. The Reigning Queen 2012 Karen Jordan and 2013 La Reina de Costa Maya Queen contestants hosted a benefit cocktail party and silent auction Monday July 29 at Fido’s Restaurant and Bar. The charisma of these generous ladies charmed guests as they drew raffle tickets and posed for photographs to help raise money towards assisting the pets of Ambergris Caye.  We are grateful of the extraordinary support of Marisa Salazar, Gach Guerrero, Will Alamilla and the entire International Costa Maya Committee.  We were honored and humbled to have been a part of this prestigious event.  We are delighted to reveal that nights’ proceeds will be used to spay/neuter over 20 island pets for free through Operation SNIP.

Saga Halloween Fundraiser 2009

Saga Halloween Fundraiser 2009

The Saga Humane Society would love to thank all those who attended and supported the latest Pet Costume Contest this past Halloween at BC’s Beach Bar. The kids had a great time with the balloon toss and sack races on the beach and were given ghost party favors filled with candy and a prize.

The pet costume contest actually had five winners as the lone cat entry was given a prize for being so brave among all the great canine contestants.

Scariest winner was our duo pirates dogs, most creative was our mariachi player, cutest was our bride (we saw you checking out the tuxedo clad dog at the bar!), and Jocelyn and her zoo won best owner/pet duo.

We would like to thank Gecko Graphics, Rosa laRosa, Casa Pan Dulce, Reef Radio, Pampered Paws, San Pedro Sun, Sylvia Eiley, Mary Hawthorne, El Fog-on, Kathy Marin, Ambergris Today, Sharon Boyd, FOTHS, Conch Creations, Colette Kase, Heidi Sowards, Mary Pugh, Dandee’s Ice Cream, Quality Poultry, Suzie Quist, Ruth Silvera, Coleen Creeden, Rashell Newton, Cheri Fletcher, Lori Purdy, and Valley Ruddick for their donation of a prize, raffle, time or food. Our apologies to anyone we missed (I saw a few of you slip sweets onto the sale table!) but want to give a big tail wag of appreciation to Charlene and the staff at BC’s for hosting our event. Also a special thanks to Valerie Vanhouten-Gilbert and Tom Gilbert for their contribution to our affair, you guys rock!!!
