June 2011 Open House
We hosted another extremely successful 2nd annual Open House in June this year, featuring a “back office” tour, live surgery, pet health information stations, teddy bear clinic, fabulous pet basket draws and a free BBQ. If you didn’t make in for a visit this year- watch for our dates to be announced for 2012!
September 2011 Wiggle Waggle Walk-a-thon for the Ottawa Humane Society
The Queensway West Animal Hospital participated for the second time in the OHS annual fundraiser, the Wiggle Waggle Walk-a-Thon. The entire staff came out to set up and operate a “nail trim” booth. We offered $5 nail trims, with all proceeds going to the OHS. This year we made over $500, that means over 100 nail trims in about 3 hours!
We bribed our way through the nail trims with the favored “Benny Bullies” liver treats and walked away a little stiff and sore and slobbered-on, but we are proud to support our local Humane Society.
