Pet Rescue BBQ in London Ontario – Part 2
Pet Rescue BBQ in London Ontario was on May 28th, 2016 1st Choice Home Solutions and Paws United came out to Pet Valu at 760 Hyde Park Road to host a BBQ in hopes to raise money for pet adoption and collect items needed for our furry friends.
Tanya, our Install Manager cooked up the hamburgers and hot dogs to give out on a hot day. The weather reached almost 40 with the humidity! Tanya powered through the hot temperatures and received great feedback on the yummy food!
Tanya also brought her two boys to help give out free drinks and offer the dogs free K-9 cookies that she personally baked!
Samantha, our Promotional Manager and Receptionist worked with one of the ladies from the 1st Choice Home Solutions Sponsored “Prove It!” team to give out the food and take any donations.
Samantha brought her daughter to help with the money and also give out K-9 Cookies to the dogs and homemade cookies to the adults! She also loved meeting all the dogs up for adoption!
We had Ashley from FM96 also come out and provide some amazing music, and Pet Valu donated their tent to keep the shade and eventually the rain. The customers were so wonderful with their generous donations and even continued to purchase hamburgers and hot dogs in the rain.
We loved meeting all the wonderful volunteers from Paws United and of course their lovable pups! They were all such sweethearts and had a great time meeting new people.
In total, we raised $222! The owner of 1st Choice Home Solutions, Glen Chard wanted to match the donations for a total of $444!
We loved being apart of such a great cause and are excited to host another charity event in the future. Make sure to stay up to date on our Facebook page so you don’t miss the next event!
