Felines show prowess at Caged for Kennels

   The felines out performed the canines in the battle of the sexes at this year’s Caged for Kennels.
    The premise was simple - two teams enter the cage, one leaves. The goal was for the teams to raise $4,000 to help support the Drumheller and Distinct Humane Society and get themselves out of doggy jail.
    The ladies, a team made up of Heather Colberg, Joanne Contenti, Kim Pozzo and Hansine Kostelecky were able to meet their goal and then some.
    This left John Shoff, Ryan Semchuk, Mike Bell and Greg Manca to lick their wounds in the confines of their cage.        
    In all the event raised about $6,500 for the Drumheller and District Humane Society.        Taryn Tappen, marketing coordinator for the society, said the funds are to support the new centre on South Railway Avenue.
    “The main goal is to get more kennels at the centre because most of the cats are now housed there, and bylaw uses us as a drop-off centre, so we have more animals,” said Tappen.
    This was the second annual Caged for Kennels event, and this year it topped last year’s event. In conjunction with the event, they also held a barbecue, which brought in about $300.
    While the canines were left whimpering in their cage, Tappen said they are hoping to redeem themselves next year.
