“They have stolen our hearts and made us realize that anything is possible if the need is great,” said Greyhaven spokesperson Jan Robson.

This Saturday, May 11 from 1 to 4 p.m. Greyhaven is holding an open house at its Ladner location to celebrate how far they have come.

Join them for tea, pastries and some interesting items for sale. Most importantly come to meet the special birds who still wait for their chance to go home.

“In keeping with our theme of overcoming obstacles we have been dealing with a massive leak for the past few days, so if you hear the sump pump running you'll know the municipality has yet to find and fix the source,” added Robson. “Just one of the many challenges faced as we move forward to complete the largest animal rescue in Canadian history.”
