Paws it Forward volunteers are able to answer questions about adopting, fostering or volunteering with the rescue group. This is the first year the rescue group has put on a St. Patrick’s Day event at Big White.

According to Big White’s website, dogs who are available for adoption will available to meet visitors to the ski hill, but cannot be adopted on the day as an application must be filled out as usual.

Big White is donating all of the proceeds from March 17’s Pet Pass sales to Paws it forward so all those visiting the hill with their four-legged friends are asked to pick up a pass from the ticket office in the Village Centre Mall when they arrive.
