Students at Clayton Heights Secondary held a delicious fundraiser on behalf of a local animal shelter last week.

Doughnuts for Dogs – featuring 600 Krispy Kreme doughnuts sold individually and by the case – sold out in minutes, as the lineup stretched down the hall.

All proceeds of the April 15 Project Equal fundraiser are being donated to the Langley Animal Protection Society (LAPS) to help pay for surgeries for dogs in need.

“I’m so happy,” said Grade 12 student Taylor MacKie, who also volunteers at LAPS, which runs the Patti Dale Animal Shelter at 26220 56 Avenue in Langley. “I can’t wait to go into LAPS and tell them how much we raised.”

The students had hoped to bring a dog from LAPS to the fundraiser, but were unable to get permission from the school district. However, they were able to display posters featuring several of the organization’s doggie success stories, called Furry Tail Endings.

Project Equal is organizing a giant garage sale at the school on June 11. There were be vendor tables and a food truck selling poutine, among other attractions.
