3rd annual Daisy Duke Memorial Benefit

3rd annual Daisy Duke Memorial Benefit


November 8, 2010

The D.A.I.S.Y? Foundation would like help from the media in spreading the word that on Saturday, November 27th at 7:00 p.m. the 3rd annual Daisy Duke Memorial Benefit will be held at the Dover Community Centre, 3133 30 Av. S.E. in Calgary to honor the death of Daisy Duke who was killed in Didsbury in 2006 by his owner and partner in crime by beating, duck taping and dragging Daisy Duke behind their vehicle and leaving her to die on the side of the road. Another purpose of the benefit is to raise money for our rescue and spay/neuter programs.

Bill Bruce from The City of Calgary Bylaw has recently come on board with the D.A.I.S.Y? Foundation. His goal is the same as ours. He wants to see this city as a no kill by collecting the stray cats and altering them. The goal is to re-home them to warehouses, farms, gas stations, etc. He will be attending our event at which time we will be awarding him with a plaque for all he has done for the animals in this city.

The D.A.I.S.Y? Foundation’s mission is to advocate for stricter penalties for animal abusers and to aid in the rescue of abused animals. We also hope to educate the public about the proven link between those who abuse animals and those who abuse humans. We aim to humanely reduce the number of abandoned and unwanted animals with our spay/neuter program.

A little more about the D.A.I.S.Y? Foundation: We are a dedicated group of animal lovers who want the suffering of animals stopped. We need to educate children on how to treat animals and to teach them that animals feel pain and have emotions just like you and I do. We are determined to get the Government’s attention to enact bill C-229. We also assist in bringing the companionship and friendship of animals to people with special needs as it provides them with the unconditional love and attention that an animal can give. We follow animal abuse cases and attend court cases to be the voice for these animals who cannot speak for themselves.

We would like to invite you, the media, to come out our event to support the animals.
