On July 5, 2014 Shaw Pet & Equine Hospitals is hosting an open house event in support of local animal welfare charities & we'll be there. This event is taking place at all 4 of the Shaw Pet Hospitals clinics; visit http://shawpet.ca/open-house/ to find the location nearest to you.
There will be door prizes, a raffle, a BBQ & other yummy snacks, pet nail trims & Advantage flea treatment by donation, tours of the facilities, face painting & balloon animals for the kids, charity tables with adoptable pets, and much more.
We're an Adopt-a-Pet.com approved rescue. What does that mean? It means that our protocols & procedures (including our vet care, our screening program, and our adoption procedure) have been screened by the international group Adopt-A-Pet.com and have been approved as legitimate & appropriate. Only approved rescues & municipal shelters can post adoptable pets on Adopt-A-Pet.com.
Update: Black Kitty is now in a foster to adopt home :)
Black Kitty needs a foster home. He was a stray that was never claimed at the pound, and he's now been transferred into our care so that he can find a loving home. He is a big boy with a confident personality. He loves attention and is quite affectionate. We're not sure how he is with other animals, but he will do best in a home without children. If you can provide Black Kitty was a foster home, or to inquire about our foster program, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
VPAS will be attending the Vancouver Island Pet Expo this year and we'd love to see you there. The Vancouver Island Pet Expo is the largest gathering of pet owners on Vancouver Island. It promotes responsible pet ownership and helps draw attention to abandoned pets available for adoption. Many pet-related businesses, adoption societies, and retailers will be there.
Each year, the Dean Park Estates Community hosts a massive garage sale, usually with nearly 100 houses involved. This year, Victoria Pet Adoption Society & United Hearts Animal Society will be participating in the garage sale together. We will have lots of great items for sale like: CDs/DVDs, books, games, household items, decorations, clothing, childrens toys and much, much more. Come on out, browse, take home some gems & support animal welfare initiatives in your community.
We will have coffee & pastries for sale in the morning so make us your first stop!
