Since its director suffered a heart attack earlier this year, Mission's Hearts on Noses pig sanctuary has needed support from volunteers and donators more than ever. One of Vancouver's vegan businesses is stepping up to help with a fundraiser.
Fairy Cakes (3586 Fraser Street), a vegan and nut-free cupcake shop, plans to host a used toy sale on December 14 and 15. According to the Facebook event page, people can drop off "gently used" toys at the shop before December 13. All proceeds from the event will go to Hearts on Noses.
Established in 1999, Hearts on Noses houses dozens of rescued pot-bellied pigs as well as other animals. Supporters can sponsor a pig for $25 a month.
