At Fergus & Bix, we believe it's the communities we're in that makes us great. Because of that, we understand the importance for us to give back and to be actively involved in the communities in which we operate. In 2010 we developed "The Charity Tap" program to do just that. With every sale of our feature beer, we take 50¢ and donate it towards a select local charity or community initiative. Since the program's inception, the Fergus & Bix group of restaurants has contributed over $40,000 towards worthy causes.
In Alberta, thousands of cats and dogs are homeless, abandoned, abused or living in horrendous conditions. Although we may not see them on the streets of our cities and towns, it is estimated that well over 25,000 small animals are rescued or surrendered in Alberta alone.
AARCS was founded in 2006 and is comprised of a network of individuals and families concerned about the welfare of abandoned, abused and surrendered animals in the province of Alberta. Their volunteers range in age from young children to seniors and all are animal lovers who are looking to make a difference.
AARCS mission is to improve the lives of animals by rescuing and providing sanctuary to abandoned, surrendered or abused animals; assisting communities to achieve healthy and respectful relationships with animals; promoting responsible and compassionate guardianship and advocating on behalf of all animals.
