Last week the Moose Jaw Co-op locations hosted Fuel Good Day with proceeds going to the Moose Jaw Humane Society. 

10 cents from every litre sold was donated, collecting over $11,000 dollars that is earmarked for the local animal shelter to aquire a "new to them" mini-van. 

"The majority is for transfers to and from, we use it for sarcan (trips), if we are transferring litter or buying food," explained Executive Director Kristyn McEwen. "Anything that you can think of... if we're going to events, if we are going to schools to do the humane education and we're taking animals with us. It has to be reliable and we need it to start and the van that we have right now just isn't in that condition anymore." 

McEwen added that one of the most enjoyable parts to Fuel Good Day was meeting people at the gas pumps and hearing their stories.

"People that weren't even from Moose Jaw were excited to be a part of it and knowing that their money was going towards the Moose Jaw Humane Society. We got to hear a lot of stories about past animals that had been adopted and then also people were telling us about their animals in general that they had. It's always that nice connection and a nice time to have a chat with people."

Thanks to the residents of our city and visitors, the Moose Jaw Co-op announced the final tally at $11,200 for the van. 

Southland Co-op locations also held a Fuel Good Day, taking 5 cents for every litre and donating it to STARS air ambulance. They gathered over $5,000 for their charity.
