Heaven Can Wait is a few bucks richer and a few adoptions lighter as the local rescue partnered with the Bone and Biscuit in town to hold what will hopefully be quarterly adoption events.

Saturday was the second adoption event that the duo has held, and so far Co-Owner of the Bone and Biscuit Chris Baker, says it's been a big success.

"This is the second event we've done since we opened, we did the first one back in June which was very successful. We raised over $600 for Heaven can wait, and they even got one adoption out of that!" Baker adds, "We haven't totaled what we've raised as of yet, but Kim from Heaven Can Wait says we've solidified another adoption today."

The Bone and Biscuit committed to donating a dollar from every sale over $5.00 to the charity, while hosting a charity BBQ.

A couple of furry friends that were up for adoption were the guests of honour, accepting pets and attention while they educated and raised awareness for rescues in the area.

Baker and Kim Hessel from Heaven Can Wait say, they would like to keep the events going, saying it brings a great opportunity for the community to meet some of the animals up for adoption.

"We hope to keep doing this quarterly, weather permitting, if we have to move the event inside later in the year we will."

While the next adoption event date hasn't been set yet, you can follow Heaven Can Wait, or the Bone and Biscuit on Facebook for updates on when the next BBQ will be.
