Kritters benefit from Pet of the Month fundraiser

Chemainus CATastrophe the first recipient of Seguin’s philanthropy efforts

In her previous life in Nova Scotia, Angela Seguin’s Pet of the Month project raised considerable money for individuals and organizations.

Nova Scotia’s loss is the Chemainus Valley’s gain.

The Crofton resident has her Krazy Kritters Kookies vendor site inside the new Chemainus Public Market and she’s rekindled an old flame, if you will, by doing what she does best.

It’s my philanthropy project,” Seguin said. “I collect money and donate money for the recipient I’ve chosen for that month.”

The first Pet of the Month is winding down and proceeds from a fundraiser kookie at $5 apiece plus money contributed in a donation jar are going to Chemainus CATastrophe. The cookies have now sold out, but donations can still be made before the end of the month.

She added 15 per cent of sales from July 22 to the proceeds.

Seguin reported the total as of Monday was in the $250 range.

Her plan is to alternate monthly donations between organizations and individuals so it’s the latter’s turn for August.

“I’m looking for somebody who needs help paying a vet bill,” Seguin said.

Anyone who’d like to be considered should contact her by email at with their first and last name, a picture of their kritter and the circumstances of their vet visit.

Seguin is not just a prolific fundraiser.

“She is a wonderful ambassador to the Chemainus Public Market,” said market manager Laurie Douglas. “As far as a sales person, she’s amazing.”

Seguin is often the first person patrons see as they enter the building because of her location.

She operates Krazy Kritter Kookies on convenient long hours from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. the rest of the week.

If the animals could talk about the kookies, her motto on a sign inside the shop would clearly resonate. ”So good, they’ll hound you for more.”
