Our mission is simple: help as many animal welfare organizations as possible through different charitable activities.
Once a year we will hold the Art Fair for Animal Welfare event, and throughout the year we will organize ‘’pop-up’’ events in collaboration with different gyms. We also regularly organize contests, raffles and auctions and will soon launch a limited edition of a Les Belles et les Bêtes T-shirts that will be available on our online store. Furthermore, we have created strategic associations with brands that share the same ethic and values as ours to sell their products on our website and divide the profits between our beneficiaries.
100% of the money from our activities is distributed to selected charities (see Beneficiaries section).
In addition, our goal is one day to open a domestic, wildlife and farm sanctuary in Boucherville in collaboration with the Passion Compassion Veterinary Hospital. A haven for injured, disabled, abandoned animals and those nearing the end of life but also a school to educate groups of schoolchildren, First Nation communities, technicians in animal health and anyone with a passion for this field. A state-of-the-art building with a classroom, a treatment room, a nursery and a quarantine as well as spacious enclosures focused on comfort, naturalness and enrichment and activity modules. We will create a community program where sanctuary employees will be physically disabled people and people with autism or intellectual disabilities who will work under the supervision of veterinarians and technicians of the Passion Compassion Veterinary Hospital.
The adventure began when Kim and Goran’s ideas crossed path. Being an ambassador of different animal welfare organizations and always looking for new ideas to help them, Kim wanted to create an event. Goran, a very passionate and creative artist suggested an art exhibit, and from there the brainstorming began. How could they make an art exhibit fun & trendy while keeping it artsy & authentic?! Combining both and forming a committee of key players was the answer. It wasn’t too long that friends and family came on board and concocted the perfect evening for you to enjoy.
Following the overwhelming success of the first edition of the Art Fair for Animal Welfare event, which raised a net amount of $36,000, with side activities that have brought in an extra $46,000, Kim & Goran realized that The Beauties and the Beasts was more than an event, it was a movement… a movement bringing together animal lovers and organizations dedicated to saving and rehabilitating them that will make a difference… and that it had to grow.
Now the adventure is just beginning …
