Supporting the Centre

The SJDAWC seeks funding from a variety of sources to support a broad range of animal welfare activities.

We gratefully acknowledge the sustained financial support of the Christofor and the Sir James Dunn Foundations, without which the SJDAWC would not exist. Lady Beaverbrook, whose first husband was the late Sir James Dunn, had a lifelong interest in the welfare of animals, particularly horses and dogs, and she wished to create a Centre in the Maritimes to improve the lives of animals. It is through her generosity that the SJDAWC was established.

We also thank the following organizations and individuals who have supported the SJDAWC in the last three years (and some for much longer than that):

  • The Pegasus Family Foundation, through the Silicon Valley Community Foundation (Pegasus projects)
