Jewel was our little BC Burnaby SPCA Branch special this week at WaterWorkz Paw Spa. As you can see Erika Cordery gently and confidently shows her how to enjoy the fun of swimming! One, two, three let’s go! We enjoy offering the free session helping the pups have a weekly outing to the spa and build their confidence. They walk in a little unsure but walk out with a skip in their step and a smile on their face!
Another successful fundraiser for the Burnaby SPCA during our Holiday Pet Photos at WaterWorkz Paw Spa! A huge thank you to everyone who helped at our event yesterday afternoon. All of our practitioners were there, the Holistic Vet, Chiropractor, Massage Therapist and Healing Touch for Animals. Our team was, as usual, friendly, happy and helpful to all who walked through our doors. Erich Saide did a great job along with his assistant Prudence with some great shots.
It was great to see many dogs that have come to us for hydrotherapy in the past and the ones we see every week. We love having new people come by and there were many who were given a tour of our space and some were lucky enough to see one of our pool buddies during their therapy session in our warm water pool!
How fitting that an adopted 7 month old SPCA special that has found a fabulous new forever home came to watch his friend Ben the Dog during his water therapy session. Since we offer a free water therapy session to each the West Vancouver SPCA and the Burnaby SPCA every week I just couldn’t help myself and had to give Rolo a go and he was a rock star! Only had about 10 minutes since we had another session after Ben but next time we will teach him to fetch!
We raised a little over $1,500, pretty good for 4 hours of fun! We thank the volunteers who fed us and helped keep things organized and running smoothly……speaking of smooth I would guess there was twenty or more jars of Peanut Butter…..our bin could not hold all the toys etc we received….Please remember we are still collecting both Peanut Butter and toys etc so more donations are always welcome!
Enjoy a few pictures…..of course I could not include everyone but had to have my Golden Retriever Jigs as one of the shots, he is such a ham!
Just letting you know there is a terrific chance to get the best ever holiday pet photo of your pet this Saturday, Nov 28th from 11am – 3pm. Erich Saide (you will all recognize him from his professional work at events, YPO, calendars, and campaigns) has agreed to donate his time for this event. He has a pooch named Bella and this cause has tugged at his heart-strings!
This event is taking place at WaterWorkz Paw Spa. It’s in Burnaby but don’t let that scare you off because it’s literally Boundary and Grandview. Take Grandview, left on Boundary, first right after the exit ramp to the hwy, round the bend, and poof there is the building on your left. Address is below. Super easy.
Money raised goes directly to the Burnaby SPCA and they could use your help. $20 or whatever you can spare. Families welcome. Please consider dropping by, we would love to see you, as would, Erich Saide, the SPCA Volunteers and the team at WaterWorkz.
Please consider helping some of our province’s most needy animals right when they need it most – the holidays. And in the process get yourself the most amazing professional picture of your pooch with you/family. Please send this email to anyone you think may be interested to come and start a holiday pet photo tradition.
And if you are worried your pup is excitable, please know that we deal with all animals all the time and every dog/pet is more than welcome at this event. Special needs are celebrated. And if you need a private moment in order to get this picture taken, we make that happen so don’t fret.
The Burnaby SPCA will happily accept canned food donations, used or new toys and PEANUT BUTTER is an ongoing need for those happy Kong moments! We have many baskets this year donated by the great clients we have…..Lush, Purdy’s, Three Dog Bakery and many more and a “SuperNatural” surprise basket! There are really just so many reasons to come! WaterWorkz Paw Spa Warm Water Therapy & Holistic Veterinary Wellness Center Saturday, Nov 28, 11am-3pm 3831 Still Creek Avenue Burnaby 604 435 0002
