Soovipalooza - Private Fundraiser

Hi everyone! On Saturday July 28th, we are playing the 2nd annual Soovipalooza which is an event to raise money for the Interval House. The Interval House is a not-for-profit, registered charitable organization that provides the service of a temporary shelter and supportive environment for women and their children in times of personal crises and provides information and assistance to women on violence and its impacts. Interval House of Ottawa is in the process of renovating a section of their basement to accommodate an animal housing area for cats, dogs, and other small animals. Many women delay leaving the abusive relationship or consider returning to their abuser to protect their pets; to escape violence together is essential. IHO will be the first shelter in Ottawa and surrounding areas to allow women, children and their pets into shelter. Not only will their on-site animal housing be protecting the pet, they will be supporting the emotional and psychological health of women and children. Pets are an integral part of the family unit, reducing loneliness, isolation, stress and anxiety. They provide unconditional support and love and increase people's ability to handle difficult situations and trauma. For more information, please visit:
