A Hand for Homeless, Street Involved and Low Income Pet Guardians

It always makes me sad and concerned when I see homeless and street involved people with their pets: sleeping in bus shelters or asking for money on the street, their faithful dog or cat by their side, sharing their thin existence.

While on the one hand there can be an element of the heart-warming around these connections, how can people who can’t afford to put a real shelter over their own heads possibly get the kind of care for their pets that most of us take us a matter of course?

With those kinds of questions in mind, Bosley’s will be offering Pet Care Day on Sunday, March 3rd, from 10 am to 6pm. Those visiting Bosley’s Columbia Square, New Westminster location will have basic vet care available by donation, including a vet check, vaccinations, flea and worming treatments and nail trimming and other minor grooming.

This is a wonderful idea and we support it completely. Not only will Bosley’s be making pet care available to those who normally might not be able to afford it, the funds raised by donation will go to benefit animals living in at risk situations through the Paws for Hope Foundation, “a non-profit society in Vancouver, British Columbia established in 2011 out of the recognition that the majority of existing animal welfare initiatives are set up to respond to the immediate and urgent needs of animals in crisis and that in order to significantly improve animal welfare, a holistic and sustainable approach is required.”

To take part in this incredible day, visit Bosley’s Columbia Square location on March 3rd, or contact or by phone at 604-657-4183.
