We welcome Dr. Judith Siegert of Port Moody Animal Hospital to the team. We met Dr. Siegert at the Regional Agility Championships and again at Nationals this year. We connected straight away, and realized quickly that our own fur babies could do no wrong! We loved her approach to provide all-round holistic care. We talked about our Non-Profit IMOMM, our mission to help pets in need and our funding process. She was very keen! We asked if she would consider joining Dr. Walton as a medical consult to the Maggie May fund and she said yes! She appreciates the effort we put into our application process to ensure that our funds were going to those that needed it most. We are very privileged to have 2 medical consults on board! Welcome to the team Dr. Siegert!
Congratulations to Cathy Chambers! We were delighted to deliver Cathy her one of a kind quilt yesterday. She was very excited!! We met Cathy at the Pet Lover show in February when she ordered a personalized Maggie May blanket for her Edwin & Marlena, one of the few kitties in this years quilt.
There were a number of you vying to win this year and that have been trying since the beginning. But a wise and kind supporter graciously said “the quilt went to where it was meant to be”.
After getting to know Cathy yesterday and meeting her precious furry ones, we knew it found a loving home.
We were lucky in enough to be greeted by 18 year old Cliff. Marlena & Edwin had scurried off.
Cathy is an animal lover! She donates her time to Katies Place and walking the SPCA dogs in Maple Ridge. She owns Complete Care Pet Sitting, and tells us she’s thinking of adopting a dog in the near future … We guess a Maggie May blanket will be on the to do list!
We love nothing better than showing off our creation and telling her of all the names in quilt, and soon after we left, we received these photo’s of Edwin and Cliff already snuggled in the quilt. (Marlena’s photo to come)
The winner of our 4th Anniversary Quilt “Companionship” is Cathy Chambers! Congratulations!
Thank you all for entering and supporting the Maggie May Fund. This a very special fundraiser for us and we are so happy to have you all be a part of it.
Thank you Chrystina and Laurie of Pet Food ‘N More for doing the honours, you are part of the tradition! And, Miss Jackie … you did a great job in supervising the event tonight!
Just wait til you see what we have planned for next year!
Five years ago, at approximately 4pm on October 11th, our beloved Maggie earned her wings after her courageous battle with cancer.
She went to a place where she could catch a Frisbee and run pain free. She left us heartbroken. But, time does heal our pain, and as time moves on, as the sadness moves over, it’s the memories that make us smile and cherish, it’s her life that we celebrate. Maggie may have left us in physical form, but her spirit is alive and well and has led to wondrous things. We know she sent us our Jackie, at the perfect time, and it is true, she rescued us.
The Maggie May fund was launched a year after her passing, which allowed us to help pets in need. And, through the Maggie May fund, we have met so many wonderful people and their furry loved ones, and connected with organizations that believe in our cause, that honours Maggie’s memory.
Today, at 4pm, we draw the winner of the anniversary quilt, we celebrate IMOMM 4th Anniversary, and we pay tribute to our beloved Maggie May.
We miss you sweetie, we really do wish there were visiting hours.
One day we were surfing the web looking for breed specific fabric prints for our Maggie May blankets. Our search led us to Spoonflower Designs. Their fabrics are beautiful but a bit our of our price range, but after we told them about the Maggie May fund and what we are doing to help pets in need, they generously donated their remnants. We were so excited to receive them and we are ready to sew! Check them out in our fabric gallery, there is a limited supply so order soon!
FYI …. our founder personally incurs the cost of our fabric purchases. When a blanket or crate pad is sold, only then is the cost of the fabrics used for the blanket or crate pad reimbursed.
This years quilt has a very special dedication to those we have lost this past year …. Josie, Joey, Kes, Ricochet, Rue & Rosie. Our pets are our forever companions, and we honour all our furry friends.
We take pride in our custom quilts, and this year these are the names included in the anniversary quilt …..

Congratulations “Dare” on making it to the FCI Agility World Championships.
Lynda won our amazing raffle basket at the National Agility Championships in August and then ordered a special Canadian inspired crate pad for her boy, to take to the Worlds in Liberec, Czech Republic this October.
We were in a bit of a panic because we have had no machine for the past 3 weeks, but thanks to our friends at Haney Sewing & Sound, they offered their shop machine to help us finish the job!
Good Luck Dare! We wish you all the best at Worlds!
