We have had a great start to 2017! We launched our new logo, Sage was the winner of Maggie’s Birthday Blanket contest, we just gave a helping hand to Kes, we have approved funding for Olive and just received fantastic news that her pneumonia has cleared.
Raising funds for any non profit is tough, especially in these times, and we are so very thankful for your donations, every dollar makes a difference.
The majority of the funds raised for the Maggie May fund however come from our pet blanket and crate pad sales. We promote these not only online but by attending local events as a vendor. We are very appreciative of these organizations for their support!
We will once again have a booth (#270) at the Pet Lover Show, February 25-26th at Tradex in Abbotsford. We will also be at the BC & Yukon Regional Agility Championships, June 9-11th at the Thunderbird Equestrian Centre in Langley. We are super excited to be at the 2017 AAC National Agility Championships, August 4-6th, also at the Thunderbird Equestrian Centre in Langley, we made many friends at the Nationals at Swangard in 2015 and hope to meet up with them again. Events are also planned with our amazing supporter Pet Food N’ More and Christmas craft fairs later in the year.
We hope you visit us at our events. Drop by to learn more about “In Memory Of Maggie May” and perhaps pick up a special something for you beloved furry one, a gift that is a gift of life to someone else’s beloved furry one.
Kes is a gorgeous Siamese with lots of love yet to give and life left to live. She just needed a bit of a helping hand with her treatment.
Kes is very blessed, not only does she have a sweet sister named Angel, she has a guardian that adores her and will do anything she can for her fur babies.
Kes was blessed in 2015 at the “Blessings of the Animals” at St. Francis of Assisi. Walking perfectly at ease on a leash, even though there were many other dogs around. She accepted the holy water as it was sprinkled on her face. Its as though she knows, this is a good thing.
In October 2016 she was blessed again at the “Blessings of the Animals” at St Andrew Wesley Church. “The cameraman was so taken by her that he filmed her up close & the segment made it on CBC TV”. A very special moments for them both.
Kes may be 16 with kidney disease, but she is under excellent medical care and doing very well with treatment. She has lots of living yet to live. We are so happy to be able to be there for her.
“If Kes could thank you she would. She is a real charmer & once she sets those gorgeous blue eyes on you & like others you will soon be under her spell”… her guardian.
The lucky winner of the 2017 Maggie May Birthday Contest is Sage! Sage is an 8 week old rescue pup, with a sweet story of her own. She was adopted along with her brother Ronan into the same family just a few weeks ago. How sweet is that!

We are starting out 2017 with a new logo. Courtesy of Sam Johnston. Sam very generously donated her time to do this for us. Sam also owns Blueberry Moon Crafts and has plans to do a fundraiser for the Maggie May fund.
Thank you so much Sam for the support, we just love the logo!
We had a very special request to do a blanket for a special daughter, to honour her pets, present and in memory. Although 11 names was not a record it was pretty close to 13 names we did a few years ago. We were delighted to be able to deliver it for Christmas and she loved it.
This past week we were saddened by Agnes’s passing, Saints Rescue resident. The Maggie May fund had been one of her sponsors. We admire the love and care that SAINTS Rescue provides to their animals and proudly continue our support to Diesel.4
