Paws for a cause

Proceeds from pet gift basket giveaway will go to Paws it Forward

Vernon doggie daycare and pet grooming parlour, Fun 4 All Pet Resort, is giving away three gift baskets for pets (including, for a large dog, small dog, and cat) as a holiday draw with all ticket proceeds going to Paws It Forward, a non-profit dog rescue organization based out of Kelowna.

“We love animals so it means a lot to be able to support organizations that care for the well-being of animals, and Paws It Forward does a wonderful job of rescuing, rehabilitating and finding loving homes for dogs in the valley and beyond. Plus a few beloved fur babies get to go home with beautiful treats for the holidays,” said Carol Hoare, owner of Fun 4 All Pet Resort.

Gift baskets include such things as a comfy bed, treats, chews and other toys, a leash, a door mat, and more (over $200 value for the large dog basket).

Tickets are available for $1 each or 6 for $5 until Dec. 22 and can be purchased at Fun 4 All Pet Resort at 4508 29th Street in Vernon. Draw is Dec. 23.

Donations of pet food and supplies for the Pet Soup Kitchen are also accepted, which helps low-income families provide necessary food and supplies for their pets throughout the year.
