The Critteraid Charity Shoppe will be offering Critteraid Craft Classes for students as of Sunday, Oct. 14.

Students eight and older are invited to participate in these classes that will be held inside the shop at 201-10118 Main St. in Summerland Sunday afternoons from 1 to 3 p.m.

The classes will be administered and instructed by Barb Tucker, a well known, local artist and artisan here in Summerland.

Tucker has planned pottery, drawing and painting to name a few projects and hopes that students will be inspired by their pets and some of the animals at Critteraid Farm in Summerland.

There is no charge for the classes and Tucker is donating all her time to administer this program.

Project wares will be offered for sale in the shop and all money raised through these projects will go toward specific animal expenses at Critteraid.

For instance, Kyle the bunny needed dental surgery and needs follow-up surgery, Hobo the dog needed knee surgery, Smokey the dog needed bowel surgery and Mr. Moose, a cat belonging to a senior in Okanagan Falls, needed immediate surgery for a broken leg.

Emergency ex-penses like these are over and above Critteraid’s operational budget and the money from the students’ projects can provide much needed financial assistance in order to pay veterinary expenses for animals in crisis.

Students will be able to register for the Critteraid Craft Classes at the Critteraid Charity Shoppe by completing a registration form along with their parent or guardian permission and will be able to register every Sunday for the following week’s classes.
