April 2019

Good Day Everyone – please enjoy reading our April newsletter!

Special Invitation! – Have you marked your calendar yet for Saturday, June 1 from 11am to 2pm?! We are celebrating our 15th year in business and are having a party! Please visit our Facebook page for full details!!

Easter Weekend (April 18-22) – We will be closed to the public on Friday, April 19 for Good Friday and on Sunday, April 21 for Easter Sunday. We are open for regular business hours on Saturday, April 20 and Monday, April 22. If you would like your pet boarded with us or your dog to visit for daycare during this long weekend please book your reservations now as space is already quite limited.

If you have a regular recurring Friday or Sunday daycare visit and would like to change your day to another during the week please let us know and we will do our best to fit you in.

Spring Has Arrived! – Looks like we will have to say our goodbye to the CLEAN winter since the dogs are full of spring fever! April means mud season! Do we let the dogs walk/run in the mud? YES! Do we let them dig and roll in the mud? YES! We want to remind everyone we let dogs be dogs here and they are guaranteed to get dirty. Each dog does get rinsed before coming inside and being sent home. Your pup may be damp still from that rinse (or two!) they had through the day. Please put an extra towel down in your car if needed.

Calling All Gardeners! – We are hosting our annual plant sale fundraising event in May and need your help! This is an early request to please consider us when the weather is right and you are cleaning up and digging around in your gardens and garden shed. We would love to have any plant donations from you. Please consider donating any clippings, extra seeds, bulbs, potted plants you may have! If you are thinning out your flowers we will gladly take your extras! We welcome all donations of flowers, fruit/berry plants, shrubs and bushes. If you happen to have names and/or photos of what you are donating that would be awesome!

We would also appreciate donations of flower pots, bags of potting soil, gardening accessories such as bird feeders/houses, lawn ornaments, and garden tools. Have other donation ideas – please let us know!

Not a big gardener and still want to help out – please consider donating a gift card to us and let us do the shopping! We will be most appreciative to receive gift cards from any of the garden stores/centres.

Facebook – Have you visited our Facebook page? We keep you updated with news, weekly photos, videos, and events. Follow this link - www.facebook.com/TheePlaceForPawsPetRetreat to visit the page.

While you are there we invite you to write a review/recommendation – many new clients find us through Facebook and seeing your reviews really helps! Feel free to “like” anything on the page and write a comment or two! If you have questions you can message us directly. Enjoy seeing all the fun we have around here!

Mark These Dates In Your Calendar – Please mark these dates in your calendars that we will have limited services or will be closed to the public. We will remind you of these dates in each monthly newsletter:

Friday, September 13 – daycare services available; grooming is available; all boarding dogs to be picked up

Saturday, Sept. 14 to Sunday, Sept. 22 – closed to the public (re-open for regular hours on Sept. 23)

There will be other dates throughout the year that are not listed here we will let you know about (statutory holidays for example). We will always keep you informed of these dates!

That’s all for now…thank you everyone for all your support and friendship – we appreciate it!
