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 2022:

  • Bernard Family (Tignish, PEI)
  • Fairview Animal Hospital
  • The Pegasus Family Foundation, an advised fund of Silicon Valley Community Foundation
  • Victoria City Kennel Club
  • Holly & Les Burridge
  • Jamie Hartlen
  • Glenn Loranger
  • Eva MacNeill
  • Janet Mah & Kevin Kane
  • Derek Mathers
  • Stephen & Tina McCarthy
  • Maria Rodrigues
  • Vanessa MacArthur
  • Fran Mercier
  • Anonymous

We are also grateful to the many generous individuals, veterinary hospitals, and other businesses, too numerous to mention, who have made a donation in memory of a beloved pet.

All donations are fully tax deductible.
