Happy New Year! As the New Year
begins to unfold, I want to wish you and yours a year filled with
good health, love, happiness and a lot of laughter. It is at this
time of year, we tend to take a moment to reflect back on the passing
year andhink of all the possibilities the New Year can bring.
I wanted to take a moment to update you on our current endeavor
involving Piper, the dog. As you may know, Piper was rescued by
the LEASH Rescue Society in Manitoba. She was found abandoned, malnourished
and with a litter of puppies. We had the opportunity to meet this
beautiful black lab, and realized that we needed to help her. Upon
examination, we realized that she required extensive dental surgery
and needed a forever home.
The Healing Paws team fell in love with Piper and decided to help
her get the treatment she needed. So, an Open House fundraiser was
organized for Dec 18th. Thanks to the generosity of our amazing
clients and the team, we raised over $500 for Piper's procedure
In addition, Dr. Alberto has graciously agreed to perform the dental
surgery free of charge on his own time, and Healing Paws will donate
the remaining costs. Piper's surgery was scheduled for Tuesday,
And some more good news: Piper may have found her forever home!
Paperwork and site visit must still be approved so we will keep
We will be able to treat Piper and follow through with her adoption
due to the generosity of our clients, Dr. Alberto and the Healing
Paws team. This success story would not be possible without you.
On behalf of Piper, the team and myself, thank you!
