April 23rd 2011 Vigil Dog Walk

On April 23rd we honoured the lives of the 100 sled dogs that were tragically taken through a vigil memorial dog walk with hopes that stronger animal cruelty laws be put into place.

A special thank you to our acting Mayor & city councillor Charlayne Thornton-Joe who supported our efforts by walking & speaking with us at the Parliament Buildings.



Thank you for all that attended!! Through this event we were able to raise over $1200!!! 100% of the proceeds raised went in support of both Shut Down Puppy Mills & Broken Promises Rescue.

A special thank you goes out to “Paws on Cook” for letting us take over your store this weekend; thank you Ali & your wonderful staff for going above & beyond to accommodate us! We would also like to thank our photographers who donated their time & talents;  Darren Beckwith & R-Tistry Photography. As well as “Island Tents & Events” for providing their curtains to help give our photographers & pets some much needed privacy during their photo shoot.

Your Pet Pals decided to put on this event as they were inspired by the many different animal rescue groups that are helping a variety of animals such as dogs, cats, pigs and rodents. Among these dedicated rescue groups, Shut Down Puppy Mills was also invited to join in. This was a great honor and a wonderful opportunity to help raise public awareness of the atrocities of the puppy mill industry.
