The Pampered Pooches fundraiser was a tremendous success! Over the course of the day, 72 dogs received a bath and nail clipping, raising $922.20 for Zachary's Paws For Healing. Thank you to Manav Gambir, the owner of Pet Valu on Upper James for supplying your dog washing stations, shampoo, and towels. He did his fair share of dog washing, too. Thank you as well to all the wonderful volunteers who made this day possible. And finally, thank you to all the pooches and their families for coming and supporting our organization! We love the Hamilton community so much. See our gallery for more images from the day.
Shake off the winter blues with a refreshing doggie spa day. Zachary’s Paws For Healing is holding the first annual Pampered Pooches fundraiser on April 16th to raise funds for our programming. For only a $10 donation to Zachary’s Paws For Healing, our volunteers will turn your scruffy best friend into a handsome hound. The cost includes a nail clipping from a professional groomer and a bath.
Pampered Pooches will take place at Pet Valu located in South Hamilton Square at 1550 Upper James, unit 8. Store owner Manav Gambhir opened the successful Hamilton Mountain location to pursue his passion of caring for animals and his dedication to helping their owners provide the best care possible. Manav has been a committed partner with Zachary’s Paws for Healing, consistently supporting our mission to make pet visits available to Hamilton hospital patients.
Your pup will be beautiful inside and out. Your kind donation will go towards providing companion pet visits to patients at Juravinski Hospital. To date, (number) pet visits have been carried out by the organization since launching in September, 2015.
