Maggie’s birthday blanket contest is very special to us, it is our way of sharing and celebrating her special day. The draw for the blanket was made by random on Valentines Day. The lucky winner was Sage, it took a while to get her fabric choices, and we weren’t quite sure how it would turn out, but we love it and suits her to a tee!
Sage and her brother Ronan are both rescue pups and adopted into the same family at 8 weeks old in January. They have grown quite some since then. We’ve been told they are a truly bonded pair. Sage has decided to share her blanket with Ronan.
We were delighted to deliver their crazy coloured blanket this past weekend.
Congratulations Sage, we hope you and Ronan enjoy your blanket as much as we enjoyed making it for you!

Olive loves her Chickens
Olive is still a pup and growing in leaps and bounds, but she needs our help. She needs surgery for her brachysephalic syndrom. Olive‘s application for funding from the Maggie May Fund has been approved, but Olive has to still recover from pneumonia before surgery can be scheduled. We are able to contribute a portion of the funds needed for Olive‘s surgery, but there is still a ways to go.
Olive reminds us so much of Josie, our very first recipient from the Maggie May fund. Her doctors gave up on her, but a second opinion with a SPECIALIST that believed in her, led to Josie’s remission and some happy and wonderful years of life.
We spoke with Olive‘s specialist at Boundary Bay, and our own medical consult, Dr Walton. Without a doubt Olive needs this surgery to survive, and without complications, she has a good prognosis. We believe in her too!
Krista is doing everything she can for her girl to get the funds together that she needs for the surgery. The funds she has raised on her GOFUNDME page is in addition to the amount we are currently able to assist with. Unfortunately, Olive‘s medical costs in keeping her pneumonia under control (a must before surgery) has exhausted her funds.
We support Olive through your donations >>>>>> Please DONATE , no amount is too small!
or donate direct to Boundary Bay Veterinary Specialty Hospital
A special thank you to Nanette and her crew for putting on a great show! We very much appreciate their support of our cause!
It was fun to share a booth this year with our ongoing supporters, Janet and Marlin of Hydro Paws, they provide a special service for your pet … we hope you check them out. The show also welcomed your pets again this year and all were very well behaved! Thank you to all the pups and llamas that dropped by the booth …. for a treat of course!
The ultimate goal was to raise awareness and much needed dollars for In Memory of Maggie May and the memorial fund, that we did and we Thank you!
We hope you had a great time ….. see you next year!

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!
