Hello, Calgary Humane Society Supporters,
Stella here, and I have an update for you.
I have officially divested myself of my coach, Mr. Gary Van Meowski.
I will still be participating in Catwalk 2015, but Mr. Van Meowski is no longer a member of team Stella. This was a difficult decision, and all of us on team Stella wish Mr. Van Meowski the best in his future endeavours.
Over the past few days some evidence has come to light regarding Mr. Van Meowski’s motives for participating in Catwalk 2015 and they are not congruent with the values of team Stella. We also had brought to our attention that Mr. Van Meowski has engaged in some activities that were hurtful to our Dog Jog compatriots. This type of behavior is unacceptable and will not be tolerated by team Stella.
As the leader of team Stella, I joined the Catwalk 2015 campaign to make a difference for animals in need at Calgary Humane Society. As a former resident of Calgary Humane Society, I know first hand the hope they give to animals who otherwise would not get a second chance. It was because of the wonderful staff and supporters of CHS that I was able to find my new home, and my only wish is that other animals receive the same benefits.
On behalf of everyone from team Stella, I wanted to extend my heartfelt apologies and regrets for Mr. Van Meowski’s behavior. While we were unaware of his plans, he was nonetheless a part of our team at the time of the incident. We will continue to work to make amends with our friends on team Rufus before the big event starts.
We look forward to seeing you all at Catwalk 2015 (better known as Dog Jog 2015) today.
