Charity

We give back to our friends in need.

We’re in the process of choosing our charity recipient for Furnal Equinox 2020 – but take a look at our friends that we’ve helped this year!

Pet Patrol is a volunteer-run, non-profit cat rescue organization in the Kitchener-Waterloo area. Since 1996, they have been providing cats and kittens a second chance at a full life, and finding them a forever home with loving owners. Their tireless mission to rescue, re-habilitate, and re-home cats continues to save lives and bring smiles.

Our success at Furnal Equinox 2019

Pet Patrol relies on charity donations and operates without government support, with many hefty bills and costs. Donations collected at Furnal Equinox 2019 will go directly toward finishing a sanctuary-in-progress in Wallenstein. Their goal is to raise at least CAD $10,000 to complete this sanctuary, which will ensure that all materials and associated building costs are seen to. At Furnal Equinox 2019, the furry community came together and exceeded all their expectations with a charity donation of nearly $11,000, raised through various events and charitable donations. We’re proud and honoured to continue the legacy of the furry fandom’s charity, and look forward to seeing the felines of Pet Patrol in their new homes!

How to get involved

  • Donations – you’ll be able to make direct donations to the Charity at the convention, and at designated Charity panels such as the Charity Auction and Charity Hour show.
  • Volunteer & Support – many of our attendees become volunteers of our Charity organization once they meet them, and you’ll be able to find out how you can help by visiting their website or at the convention.
  • Adopt – we’ve had attendees fall in love with our Charity animals, and if your life could use a furry companion, you could even explore adoption!
