Thanksgiving Holiday – We are closed to the public on Monday, October 10th for Thanksgiving. If you have a regular Monday daycare visit please keep your pups at home that day!
Readers’ Choice Awards – We won! We are thrilled to say we were chosen favourite Pet Daycare/Boarding and Pet Groomer in the Barrie Advance Readers’ Choice! Thank you so much to everyone who voted for us!
Precious Paws Auction Fundraiser – Our friends at Precious Paws Rescue are looking for new or very gently used items to be donated towards their fall auction fundraiser. Gift cards/certificates are also appreciated. This annual event is crucial in raising funds to care for all the dogs in the rescue and the many more still to come. If you have any items you would like to donate please drop off directly to us. Thank you for your help!
Pet Loss Support Meeting – One of the hardest parts of pet ownership is having to say our final goodbyes. The grief, loneliness, guilt, sadness, is real and often dealt with alone. The grieving process can take weeks, months, years even. Some of us have a deeper relationship with our pets than we do with our humans.
We have connected with a local registered therapist Melanie Devison, MA, RP (www.therapyheals.ca) who will be leading a pet loss support group meeting at our location. The date is Thursday, October 27 at 6:30pm. Registration is required as we want to keep the group size small, personal, and confidential. Everyone is welcome (you do not need to be a TPFP client) if you have lost a pet or have a palliative pet that you are preparing for end of life. Please message us through Facebook or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
