New Year, New Day

2013 was such an amazing year for Love on a Leash and so many of our friends and clients. We wish you the best of luck in the New Year and thank you for your continued support!

One of the highlights of our year came quite near the end when so many of you came out supported the inaugural Love on a Leash Trusted Dog Care’s “Santa Paws is Coming to Town” Fundraiser held on December 14th and 15th at Tisol Pet Supply & Nutrition on Grandview Highway in Vancouver. 

The event was created this year specifically to support Paws for Hope and Rescue a Boxer, and to create an enjoyable day out for dog lovers and their beloved dogs! Santa paws is Coming to Town was a huge success with over 150 dogs and two cats coming by for a visit with Santa.

To those who came out, we were thrilled to receive your support for this year’s festive event. The donations given helped ensure an enjoyable afternoon for our guests, providing the opportunity for dog lovers to sip on mulled cider and nibble on delectable baked goodies, to win great raffle prizes, as well as take home generous gift bags and, of course, to help raise much needed funds for Paws for Hope and Rescue a Boxer.

Feedback from our guests was overwhelmingly positive, especially regarding the professional “Off-Leash Photography” Santa Photos taken with a very dog-friendly Santa on his magnificent holiday throne from Can/Am Importique, complete with a beautifully decorated Christmas tree backdrop thanks to Greenscape Design, from the mix’n’mingle mulled cider and holiday baked goodies buffet thanks to Siegel’s Bagels, to the fabulous gift bags courtesy of Tisol, Modern Dog Magazine, the Sequoia Restaurant Group and Love on a Leash Dog Trusted Care Services.

Also,  the winners of the gift baskets generously donated by Love on a Leash Trusted Dog Care and Tisol Pet Supply & Nutrition were:
  • Romeo the Boxer & Yoshi the Bugg  (Riina Cooke)
  • Chewie & Lovey the Boxers   (Jennifer Kaiser)

To see photos of the winner and the day, see the Santa Paws is Coming to Town event album on our Facebook page.

The entire two days received “two paws up” from all those who attended. The location could not have been more perfect. Thank you for your support of this years’ event. Plans are well underway for further doggy events in 2014 and we hope you will consider supporting us again!
