The RAPS Annual General Meeting is usually a time when the members of the organization come together to celebrate the achievements of RAPS in saving and improving the lives of animals.
This would have been especially significant as we mark 25 years of our work in the community.
However, due to the extraordinary circumstances this year, this meeting will be business only.
We look forward to recognizing the individual and collective achievements of the RAPS family in the near future.
We also thank you for your continued support and dedication through this challenging year.
Everything we do is possible because we have the support of animal-loving people like you!
We ask for your patience as we present this first-ever VIRTUAL Annual General Meeting.
On behalf of the Board of Directors
Fearn Edmonds, President
