About the Virtual Benefit

While it may look a little different this year, our second annual (online) benefit is here, so please join us! Moving our biggest fundraiser of the year online will be a challenge, however we have the opportunity to engage animal lovers across the country and beyond, making it bigger than ever!

Purchase a Ticket

Please join us for a virtual sanctuary tour, including an update from the founders, and special guest speakers.

This is a VIRTUAL event, and we are asking for a donation as your entry ticket. Suggested ticket price is $10, and every $10 donated will be entered into a raffle. Our monthly donors and sponsors will be automatically entered!

You’ll be entered to win this gift basket, which will include:

  • All the GUSTA, probably more than pictured here!
  • Up to 4 Sweet Sanctuary Tees… we have men’s, women’s, and a few youth sizes left
  • The beautiful and special lucky 12 bracelet… the LAST ONE!
  • Free vegan product coupons from Follow Your Heart (Earth Island), and Daiya Foods

The raffle draw will take place this Sunday, October 11th! All donations up until then will be entered. Please fill in the form below if you wish to make a donation!

Silent Auction – Now Live on Facebook!

Bidding closes on October 14, 2020 at 8PM

It’s our first ever online auction for the animals! Please head over to Facebook and support the Sweet Sanctuary by bidding on these items that have so generously been donated.

100% of money raised from this auction will go towards providing food, medical care, and shelter to our growing sanctuary family. This year, our two newest rescues have been challenging medical cases, resulting in big vet bills. Please support our life changing work if you are able. To bid on an item, comment on the photo with the amount you wish to bid. Please follow the starting bids and a minimum $5 price increment per bid. Turn on notifications so you don’t miss out when someone else bids. Highest bidder wins! The auction will close on October 14, 2020 at 8PM.

Items may be picked up at one of 3 locations in Almonte, Stittsville, and downtown Ottawa. If you’re on the cookie route we can deliver your item(s) no problem as well! Happy bidding!!

Thank You to our Generous Sponsors

The work we do on behalf of the animals is certainly a labour of love, but it is also very expensive. As a young charity, we rely entirely on our great community for financial support.
