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!
Our 2021 Pet Photos with Santa fundraiser was a huge success!
Thank you so much to everyone who came, and to our incredible staff and volunteers. Santa said it was his favorite stop of the holiday!
A special thank you to our Holiday Matching Campaign and Santa Photos sponsors:
We are still totaling the number of donations made, but everything will be invested directly back into improving the quality of life for our shelter animals - Thank you for your support, and see you next year!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
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!
