Spring Fling Online Auction for Critical Care Animals

Let's grow some funds for WAG's Critical Care animals at our Spring Fling Online Auction. In the first few months of 2022 WAG has already had over ten Critical Care Animals requiring extra vet visits and surgeries. From leg amputations, to urinary blockages to Diabetic senior cats, and many more, WAG has some expensive veterinary bills to cover. 100% of proceeds from this online auction will go directly to helping cover those costs.

Grab some sweet items and help those animals in the most need!

Online Auction begins Sunday, May 15th at 10am.

Auction ends Monday, May 30th at 8pm.

THANK YOU to all our amazing donors!

Betty White Day with the Raven Room and Tito’s Vodka

A Fundraiser hosted by the Raven Room and Tito's Vodka to celebrate Betty White's 100th birthday.

speed dating

2021 ended on a sad note when the world learned of the passing of Betty White, a Hollywood legend and former star of the hit show, The Golden Girls. She was 99 years old and passed away shortly before her 100th birthday.

A long-time animal lover, her 100th birthday became a day to donate to your favorite animal rescue group, and WAG was lucky enough to be the charitable recipient for a fundraiser hosted by the Raven Room here in Whistler, in partnership with Tito's Vodka!

Serving her three favorite foods (hot dogs, french fries, and vodka!), our community celebrated her in style all while supporting the animals she loved so much.

The Raven Room raised $760 and Tio's Vodka generously matched that donation for a grand total of $1520!

The donations to WAG that day came from far and wide, and we also received $5796 in honor of Betty White and her 100th birthday - we were absolutely blown away by the love and support for this legendary woman and for WAG.

THANK YOU to all our donors and supporters, and to the Raven Room and Tito's Vodka...We can't wait until next year!

Holiday Matching Campaign 2021

2021 presented WAG and our communities with even more challenges this past year, but thanks to your support, we ended on a high note!

Thanks to the support of Zog’s Whistler and Moguls Coffee House, and their pledge to match all donations up to $15,000, we were able to raise our annual Holiday Matching Campaign goal to $30,000!

Not only did we meet our $15,000 fundraising goal, but we also surpassed it, raising a massive $26,200 for the animals of WAG. We could not have done it without the support of our incredible communities, near and far.

thank you

COVID-19 has given those working from home more time with their loving fur family members than ever. Sadly, not all animals are loved and cared for. There are many who do not have a loving home, medical care, food, or even a bed; they do not know what a gentle touch is or how to play.

For the second year in a row, the amazing owners of local favourite eateries Mogul’s Coffee House and Zog’s Whistler have stepped up to help with an even BIGGER donation!

They have pledged to match every dollar donated to WAG from November 30th (Giving Tuesday) to December 31st, up to $15,000... That means we could raise $30,000!!!!

Those funds of up to $30,000 could go a long way to help feed, shelter and rehabilitate animals before they are able to go to their forever home.

Help us reach our goal of $30,000 and donate today - tax receipts are available!

WAG’s Tribute to Tobias

WWW.HOLLOWTREE.CA

WAG would like to honor the memory and legacy of Hollow Tree creator, animal advocate, WAG-supporter, and friend, Tobias Douglas by building and installing a memorial bench and plaque for our outdoor dog run.

It was very important to WAG to honor her in some way at the shelter, as she has been so integral to our success, so we decided on a memorial bench.

It was also very important to include a natural element in this project, so this bench has two planters, which will allow us to include some much needed life and greenery to this particular dog run. This will provide enrichment for the dogs, beautify the space, and allow for a quiet moment to sit and be thankful for Tobias while surrounded by the dogs she so loved.

We feel this captures a tiny piece of the essence of Tobias' life, her Hollow Tree legacy, her love for all things nature, and her love for improving the lives of shelter animals.

We need to raise a minimum of $500 to cover the costs for this tribute and we have the BEST way for you to help!

WAG will be selling Hollow Tree candles with 100% of the proceeds benefiting this memorial project. We will only have 12 available for this campaign, so it will be first come, first served! Each candle will be a minimum of $40 donation, but feel free to donate more! Tax receipts will be available for any extra that is donated and any extra funds raised will be donated directly to WAG's Critical Care Medical Fund.

There are only 12 available, so don't wait!
