For Winston

Winston is just a puppy with an entire big, beautiful life ahead of him. You would never know that he has severe hip dysplasia and needs a total hip replacement on both sides. This is a big surgery with a big cost: $10,000. This represents a huge expense for our small rescue. We are committed to Winston – and you can help!

The Forever Gala

Until there is a forever home for every animal.

A magical night out in support of Kingston Animal Rescue.

Celebrate Kingston Animal Rescue with a magical, unforgettable night out in the heart of our community. Kingston Animal Rescue is fueled by the heart, compassion, and generosity of the people of Kingston. Hundreds of animals have been saved by the support of this beautiful city and with this event many more!

The Forever Gala features a stunning waterfront venue with floor to ceiling glass windows and a cozy lakefront patio overlooking gorgeous Lake Ontario and an open sky. Show up to red carpet photography, delicious vegan fine dining, exciting live and silent auctions, inspiring entertainment with live music, and much more – all in the wonderful company of Kingston’s golden-hearted animal lovers.   

Use of Funds


Until there is a forever home for every animal.

Kingston Animal Rescue’s mission is to end the suffering of animals with rescue, rehabilitation, adoption and education. Founded in 2010, the organization has rescued 1,070 animals, focusing on “last-chance animals:” those facing euthanasia in a shelter; stray animals; and animals with significant medical challenges. 

 One such animal, is Winston, a one-year-old black Goldendoodle that the organization saved from euthanasia. Winston has severe hip dysplasia and needs full hip replacement, a two-part surgery performed by an orthopaedic specialist that will cost a minimum of $15,000. This year’s Forever Gala will primarily benefit Winston with any additional funds raised supporting other animals in Kingston Animal Rescue’s care. 

 “Winston is a loveable and very sweet dog who would have been euthanized without our intervention,“ says Jessica Hellard, Co-founder of Kingston Animal Rescue. “Instead, he now lives with a dedicated foster family and this spring he’ll have this much-needed surgery, which will restore his mobility and set him up for an amazing life.” 

During its 2022-23 fiscal year, the organization spent $62,333 on medical care and rescued 56 animals, as well as supporting several long-term or sanctuary animals (animals with exceptional medical needs that make them unadoptable). The organizations total annual budget is $110,000. 

 “The Gala makes a huge impact on our ability to rescue and provide care to animals that otherwise would have no hope. We are a mostly volunteer-run organization with one full-time staff member. That we can raise nearly half our annual medical budget in one night is transformational,” says Alison Migneault, Co-founder of Kingston Animal Rescue. 

Until there is a forever home for every animal.

Winston will need two total hip replacement surgeries to be able to run again!
