24 ways to celebrate RAPS’ 24th birthday

The Regional Animal Protection Society turns 24 on September 7! For 24 years, we have been saving and improving the lives of animals – because of your support, volunteerism and generosity! The lives we have changed – animals and humans! – are incalculable. So many happy stories across these 24 years.

At our age, we would usually say “No gifts, thanks!”

But it’s not for us! It’s for the animals.


We know that you love the animals as much as we do. If you want to take a few minutes so that we can continue our important work long into the future, we’ve got a few ideas … Exactly 24, in fact:
