April is PET MONTH at Pan Pacific Village Centre!

Your stay directly suppports WAG animals...

The place for pets who love to travel

As a pet-friendly hotel in Whistler, dogs and cats are welcome at Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre. At the hotel, they will enjoy an amenity package in their spacious Studio, One or Two-bedroom suites.

When guests check in at Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre with a four-legged friend, they receive a practical and well-stocked amenity package for the hotel visit including:

-Dog treats
-Food & water bowls
-Blanket
-Biodegradable poop bags

Our Guest Services team can share information on the best trails and parks for walks, runs, and of course, playtime! All minutes from our Village Centre hotel.

Each time a hotel guest brings their family pet along for a luxury stay at Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre, $5.00 from each night of the guests’ pet fee is donated to Whistler Animals Galore (WAG) animal shelter to help enrich the lives of Whistler pets who have not yet found homes.

Pan Pacific Whistler team has a passion for pets that extends well beyond the front doors of the hotels. This group of animal lovers enjoys pampering all pets, including those lucky dogs (and cats) who stay at the Whistler-based hotel and the WAG animals still looking for a family to love.

April also marks the 10th anniversary of Pan Pacific Village Centre’s partnership with WAG, with over $36,000 donated so far. This year they are boosting their ongoing support by purchasing four training harnesses for the shelter and sponsoring an advertisement in Pique Newspaper to find a fur-ever home for Cal, who has been in WAG’s care since April 2019.
You can read more about Cal HERE!

Pan Pacific Village Centre has donated over $36,000 to WAG animals - wow!

gizmo

Gizmo will need to have one leg amputated, and then be on strict rest to heal her shattered pelvis.

WAG is now fundraising for an amputation surgery, medication, hospitalization, aftercare, and everything else that Gizmo will need.

Gizmo is currently unable or unwilling to urinate on her own, which is still a concern, however, we are hopeful that as she heals, this will resolve.

Gizmo deserves this chance and you can help gift it to her by donating to WAG's Critical Care Fund by clicking the button below!

Thank you to the incredible team at Mountain Side Animal Hospital and Eagleview Veterinary Hospital for all their love and care for sweet little Gizmo.

WAG was called late Thursday night about a dog who desperately needed our help.

She was found on her doorstep crying, bloody, and unable to walk, and no one saw what happened...
From the extent of her injuries and road rash, it is suspected she was hit by a car.

Her radiographs show that she has a shattered femur and pelvis.

Due to the extent of her injuries, she now needs major and immediate medical intervention...

GIZMO NEEDS YOUR HELP!

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!
