We’re excited to announce the dates of our 2017 Wellness Clinic! On May 6 & 7, we’ll be in Saik’uz to provide local pet dogs and cats with health checks and preventative health care, including vaccinations and deworming. We’re also happy to have Lakes Animal Friendship Society back again this year with a humane education program for local kids.
At a Wellness Clinic, community residents can seek medical advice and services for their pets. Common concerns include minor wound care and overdue teeth, grooming and toenail issues. Each pet also gets an overall check up and basic health care such as de-wormer, flea and tick medication, and vaccines.
Of course, we couldn’t do this life-saving work without our amazing donors and supporters! Your Aeroplan donations go a long way towards getting our volunteers into the community, which is located near Vanderhoof. But there is also ground travel to consider, for both people and supplies, as well as lodging for volunteers. Donations of vaccinations and dewormers are critical and we also rely on fundraising initiatives, such as our Pawsitive Links program, to raise the additional funds needed to cover expenses.
You can help us make our Spring Wellness Clinic a success by donating your Aeroplan miles or purchasing a Pawsitive Links bracelet. Or, if you would like to make an online financial donation through CanadaHelps, please click here. Remember, just $15 helps us vaccinate one dog or cat!
To those who have already donated, we offer our heartfelt thanks. We already have enough Aeroplan miles to fly three volunteers, round-trip, and that goes a very long way toward offsetting our costs. It is your valued support that make these events possible!
