Leashes by the Lake is a major event for the all-volunteer animal shelter, which is funded entirely by donations and fundraising. In 2018, it cost approximately $368,000 to run the shelter. Last year, the South Etobicoke community helped raise around $17,000 through this event. This year we are hoping to raise $30,000!
