Paw Prints fundraiser a success for students

Dear editor,

The Taking the Lead Canine Therapy Program at école Au-cœur-de-l’île held the Paw Prints Fundraiser Raffle this past November. The children in the program worked very hard to sell tickets in the Comox Valley to raise money to spay and neuter pets that belong to families that cannot otherwise afford to do so. Thanks to all the people that purchased tickets, and especially to the businesses that donated all the amazing prizes and services, the students earned enough money to spay and neuter several pets.

We will not know how many pets this will reach as the cost of the surgeries vary depending on the size and health of the animal. If you would like to apply for the spay and neuter fund please contact K9 Kind at 250-792-KIND (5463).

The Taking the Lead Canine Therapy Program was developed by K9 Kind Dog Training. In the program the children learn about community outreach through canine assisted therapy and fundraising. The program nurtures our children in the skills and qualities they need to be successful in school and in life.

The Paw Prints Fund Raiser Raffle was an excellent experience for the children to learn and participate in the community. K9 Kind would like to thank the following businesses:

Van Isle Veterinary Hospital, The Comox Valley Record, Comox Valley Translation Services, Greenspace Renovations, MDO Painting, Kingfisher Charters, Hair of the Dog, Wishbone Kennels, The Atlas Cafe, Common Ground Cafe, Blackfin Pub, Sharon Snider Photography, Woofy’s, Go Dog Go! and Thrifty Foods. Your support is greatly appreciated and helped children learn valuable life lessons.
