LAWS Yard Sale

Posted: Sunday September 3, 2017 1:13 PM

Another LAWS YARD SALE has concluded ...our 48th to be exact!!! Once again, it was a huge success - beautiful weather, tons of donations, a delicious BBQ, Facepainting.......and, of course, the numerous friends and supporters who came by to check out the wares!!

We'd like to give a special shout out to the countless volunteers -(both adults and students alike), who came out to help unload the shed and boxes, organize the tables, assist with sales, with loading stuff into cars, and lastly, the big job of take down/put away/pack up and take to dump.
We seriously could not have done it without you!!!

How grateful we are to have such a wonderful community of support!!
Now to the best news....We raised a GRAND TOTAL of $7026.00 for the shelter and all the furry friends on-site!!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Amazon Wish List

Posted: Saturday May 27, 2017 3:41 PM

As many of you know LAWS  relies solely on donations.  We are very thankful for eveyone who helps by donation money, time or much needed items!


As we all know life can be busy, and finding the time to drive up to the shelter with your wonderful donations during our open hours can be abit tricky. has wonderful feature called a Wish List!  We set one up!  There are many day to day items listed, as well as food and toys.

When you order from Amazon, the items ship right to the shelter!  We have received a few boxes already and love the surprise!

Of course, once the box is empty, the cats and kittens LOVE the empty boxes!!!!


It is super easy to do.  Go to ,  There is a link for Wish List, select Find a Wish List, and type in "Lakefield Animal Welfare Society"!

Thank you to everyone!
