Our Successful Open House

Sheila  ·  Jun. 11, 2017

We had an incredibly successful two day open house. We had a record of over 430 people tour our shelter. Thank you to everyone who patiently waited for their tours to start. Thank you to our tour guides who are, I am sure, exhausted. Thank you to Outer Rim Garrison for the additional donations you bought in Sunday. Thank you to Walks 'N' Wags Pet First Aid for having such a fun booth. Thank you to Allison Maxwell for having such fun teaching the saints dogs their first nosework lesson. Thank you Ocean Park Dog Training Training for sharing your knowledge. Thank you BC SPCA (BCSPCA) for educating us about your certified farm program. Thank you to Hansel and Gretel Bakery and Leila Kullar for your scrumptious vegan food. Your food went within two hours on both days.

Thank you to all those who participated in our event. Everyone who attended, every volunteer, all the employees, every person who shared our posts. Thank you for loving SAINTS. The animals felt your group hug. And they are also pooped.

(Edited with updated total) We raised an incredible record breaking net amount of $10,180!



Yay!!! Love that it went so incredibly well. Sorry I missed out but seeing it all come together week by week was amazing :)
Great job everyone. You all are amazing!!


So proud to have been a part of this today. Followed you guys for over a decade on social media and am happy to finally be able to say I've been there in real life! ❤ thank you for all you do. You provide a beautiful refuge for animals in need.


Whoohoo. Very successful open house all around. Lots of hard work, but so worth it. We met some great people, and it's always amazing so see how so many people really care.
