This afternoon we had the pleasure of presenting our Anniversary Quilt to the excited winner of our donation raffle, Dan Townson and his sidekick Rocco. He had great interest in the making of the quilt and was quite impressed (thanks to Tammy for the amazing long arm work). He also told us that his kids have called “dibs”. Our quilt was quite the hit with many memories behind each of the mini quilts.
We make new friends through our Maggie May Blankets, and last year was no exception ….. We met Finnegan, Fysti, Zesty, Ritzy & Tilly’s humans at the agility championships last summer. Sloan was the winner of our Alberta Rescue’s auction, and then all his friends decided they wanted a Maggie May blanket too … Zoey, Sage, Archie, Angel, Marley & Bella. Rosie & Whiski received their first, while Gunner was surprised with two last year. Gracie was our Birthday Blanket winner. At the Pet Lover Show in February, Titus, Buttermilk, Enzo, Muffin, Whiskers, Kitty Cat, Samson, Roman & Muppet ordered their custom blankets. Our recipients, Jimmy, Elijah, Ninja & Meea are snuggled in their blankets. And, we will never forget the very special two-sided blanket we made for a new puppy named Raiin, in memory of their beloved Koda.
There is so much more …. with so many wonderful memories and wonderful new friends!
Thank you all for a successful fundraiser!
Anticipation …. this years anniversary quilt as always was labour of love, and not only did we exceed our goal of $500, we had record ticket sales of 160 tickets… wow, but now we have to announce the winner, as hard as it is, cause we know how many really really really wanted to win, we wish you could all be winners, but just remember who the real winner is …. a pet in need, and we thank you so much for your support!

Miss Meea, as we affectionately call her, was helped through the Maggie May fund last May. We had the privilege of meeting her sweetness soon after, and sweet she certainly was. She later took a time out to attend one of our fundraisers, wanting to help bring awareness to our cause, and of course she was the star of the show.
We caught up with Miss Meea the other day, and her Mom writes ….
“Miss Meea might not hear or see much but can always find her food. A bit gray and chubby. The best is no more ear pain. She spends most of her senior days sleeping ad eating. She is a happy girl in spite of her losses. She loves her family and stays very close at all times. Thank you so much again.”
“Flinn makes sure that she is going in the right direction, he is so good and enjoys being her ears and eyes. Meea’s new sister Cassie just gets on her nerves as Cassie is very perky and inquisitive. Cassie thinks Meea is playing until Meea let’s her know that NO she is serious…. leave me alone. Lol”
We are so happy to have been able to help Meea!

One of the best parts of the job is being able to personally deliver our Maggie May blankets and to meet our furry friends. A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of meeting Joey, his 8th birthday was coming up in a few days, and the blanket was to be a surprise! We had to cover his eyes, before we could sneak his special gift into the house. Joey was absolutely adorable and we were honoured to meet him and give him tons of belly rubs! We were told he is a spoiled pup on his birthdays … with a fancy cake too! A much loved pup indeed!
Joey will be in next years Anniversary Quilt!
We are so excited to finally reveal our “FOREVER” quilt, we are a few days late, but I don’t think Maggie minds at all.
We love how it turned out and this year we have dedicated it to all our beloved pets. They bring so much to our lives, and although their time with us is far too short, they live on FOREVER in our hearts.
