With your donation, you will receive a small thank you gift from the gallery as well as an entry into our Valentine’s Day draw for an exceptional heart-shaped box carved by Kwakwaka´wakw artist Mike Sedgemore valued at $400. The image of a supernatural bear carved on the brass lid is sure to delight your favourite Valentine.

The Comox Valley SPCA and its animals are in need of the following items that we will be happy to collect:

• Wet dog and cat food (No dry food)

• Dog and cat beds

• Fleece blankets, towels, face cloths

• Paper towels, toilet rolls and disinfectant wipes
