Shelter gets a birthday boost

Nina Gibaldi had her 10th birthday, but it was the animals at the Humane Society shelter that got the presents.

Nina Gibaldi was accompanied by her buddy Mica when she delivered her birthday party care package to the Kitimat Humane Society.

Nina Gibaldi had her 10th birthday, but it was the animals at the Humane Society shelter that got the presents.

And that was Nina’s idea. “I got a lot of presents at Christmas,” she explained. And with her birthday following so soon after Christmas, “I didn’t want too many presents at my house.”

Those attending her birthday party – almost all her classmates plus family friends – were happy to meet her wish, for which she thanked them.

Although the new shelter is not yet open, Nina’s presentation of her friends’ donations was held there so she could get a tour of the building.

Having visited the current shelter a few times, her verdict on its replacement?

“It’s really nice. I like how it’s all heated because the other one didn’t seem to have a lot of heat in it.”

And once they are inside their new digs, there’s little doubt the cats and dogs will agree.
