"The BC SPCA's emergency medical care saved Lucy's life before I adopted her - fundraising for the BC SPCA was a way to show my appreciation" says Natalia Evans who came first in the BC SPCA Calendar Contest earning Lucy Lemon her prime spot on the cover.
"All three dogs come to work with us (at The Hitch Company); between them and my husband, all the sales reps were talked into donating in Lucy's name" laughs Natalia.
Natalia Evans feels that Lucy Lemon was the last piece of the puzzle for their family. Max, the black lab, is clearly her husband’s dog; Bailey is their independent one; but Lucy Lemon is Natalia’s buddy. "I think Lucy Lemon must have had cats close by at the shelter - she’s learned cat behaviour! She chases mice and likes to sit on laps, and isn’t completely content until everybody has cuddled up on the couch with her in the evenings."
"All three of our dogs came from the BC SPCA, but Lucy needed such expensive surgery that I know she never would have made it if it wasn’t for the SPCA’s Biscuit Fund".
In appreciation for Natalia's efforts fundraising for the BC SPCA in this year's Calendar Contest we encourage shelters to name an abandoned animal 'Natalia' in the month of October.
