We won the benefit brew contest!! Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who voted for us (even if it was just once) because your votes added up to us winning!
Our custom brew will be hitting shelves in early February so stay tuned! SAINTS will be receiving approx. $10,000 from the sales of our custom Imperial Pilsner and we'll be sure to post which outlets will be selling the beer. Thank you Phillips Brewing & Malting Co. from all our FB fans, volunteers, staff, and most especially the animals.
Thank you The Pet Shop Boys Doggie Boutique and Spa Vancouver for a great fundraiser for the 4th year in a row. Big thank you to Tiffany Cooper. She took 5 minutes with each client to create amazing pictures. And thank you Annika from Canine Connection Training and Val from Hikin' Hounds. These ladies are both located in Vancouver and practice positive reinforcement. We at SAINTS love that. This fundraiser totaled an astounding $2635. AND this location donates all of the proceeds from nail trims to BC dog rescues. This November and December SAINTS is the beneficiary.
Our 4th Annual SAINTS rescue Holiday Photo Shoot was a hit once again! We raised $2635 on Sunday with Tiffany Cooper our talented photographer and Annika from C...anine Connection Training & Val from Hiking Hounds our amazing dog trainers lending their expertise to help pose the beautiful little furry animals with their families and all of our volunteers - Donna & Daniel!
Thanks to everyone who came out to support this event Here are some of my favourite pictures, see you all next year!
Two more introductions today...two more animals who needed us. Red, transferred from another shelter, is 11 years old and is absolutely delightful! He is a purring machine! Riley is 6 years old. He has a torn cruciate ligament and his family didn't think they could manage him through the surgery and recovery. Rather than euthanize, the vet contacted Saints. Welcome, Red and Riley, to the first day of the rest of your lives...as Saints!
We wanted to take a moment to thank everyone that is a fan of our Facebook, twitter and Instagram pages who took the time to vote for us in the Benefit Brew contest. We had a huge amount of shares and clicks on the link we provided for voting. Also thank you Phillips Brewing & Malting Co. for supporting non profits and finding a fun way to do it. Fingers crossed we win but even if we don't, we appreciate the love people have shown the SAINTS residents! ❤️️
After being picked up as a stray, Ben found his way to Saints in late 2014. Shortly thereafter he made his way into staff member Anne's heart, and then her home. Ben passed away today, peacefully, surrounded by love. In Anne's words...
It was Ben's time to pass over the rainbow bridge today. Everyone who met him agreed he was the coolest of cool cats. Thank you to SAINTS for letting us foster him for his last years of life. He enriched ours.
Thank you Anne and Alphonse for giving Ben the home of his dreams. We are all very sorry for your loss.
