Small Talk- June 2021

From our Team

We are very pleased to support a great charitable organization in my home town of Lloydminster.  Furbabies Furever Homes was founded Dec 27, 2012 by none other than my mother, Lonnie Boothman.  The organization is fueled by 100% volunteers and a love for man’s best friend.  Since its inception they’ve helped to re-home over 1500 dogs.  The organization is supported by its 18,000+ Facebook members, countless volunteers and a number of key contributors over its 8 years of operation. 

My mom literally put thousands of miles on her personal vehicle over the years to rescue the dogs and care for them until they’ve been adopted.  Recently we supported them in their efforts to raise over $16,000 to purchase a Suburban to act as Furbabies primary vehicle. 

For more information you can find them on Facebook at Furbabies Furever Homes Society/Registered Charity or Furbabies Furever Homes Society/Fundraiser.

  • Daschunds were originally bred to fight badgers
  • When your dog is carefully choosing the perfect place to do his business, it is because they prefer to go in alignment with Earth's magnetic field
