Thanks for your Teamwork… Teamworks!

Behavior Modification Seminar

This past , the Teamworks Dog Training Behavior Modification Seminar provided dog lovers, rescuers, trainers, and parents an opportunity to learn a lot about dog behavior. Some of the topics discussed included “Training Tools for Every Dog”, “Recognizing Different Types of Aggression”, and “Surviving Puppyhood”. In addition to all the great information that was shared, Teamworks partnered with Paws For Life as a rescue organization to raise funds as part of their raffle. Gift baskets of goodies raised $163 dollars which will be used to help us #savemorelives.

If you would be interested in figuring out clever ways to support us or partnering with us, please let us know!!!

Chi-Chi’s Return and Beautification

[text-blocks id=”polaroid” classes=”main-image-full” src=”/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Chi_Chi_Pre_Groom-300×225.jpeg” width=”300″ height=”225″ text=”Chi-Chi (pre-Groom)” plain=”1″]Our Community Steps Up

Unfortunately, Chi-Chi was  returned to Paws For Life when her adopter died unexpectedly. Not only was she likely sad on the inside, she also looked sad on the outside (not to mention a bit stinky, too). With a quick request to see if anyone in our wonderful community would donate a free grooming session, within minutes Bonnie Keyes, a Kennel Tech at Canine Country Club and Pet Hotel and avid animal advocate/lover offered to help! They provided the pampering Chi-Chi needed to get ready for her new debut to find her next fur-ever family.  This was further appreciated when Chi-Chi was brought in for her grooming session, and to say the least, was not the most pleasant client.  She did not love her toes or face touched but CCC staff was very patient and kind throughout the whole process!!

In addition Melissa, who is both a talented groomer and the steadfast office manager has been with them for about the same amount of time. They pride themselves in having some of the same clients since the 80’s who continue to bring their 4-legged babies to CCC. They know with all the new grooming places that come and go, you have lots of choices but their FOCUS is quality of service and relationships. We can not thank Canine Country Club wonderful staff enough for their big hearts, warm hands, and generosity.

Thank You Redd Waggin Pet Supply Co.!

[text-blocks id=”polaroid” classes=”main-image-full” src=”/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Redd_Waggin_Feb_17_Supply_Donation-300×300.jpg” width=”300″ height=”300″ text=”Redd Waggin Donation” plain=”1″]Your donation of food and supplies helps us save more lives!

Recently a volunteer made a request, “Can someone pick up a supply donation from Redd Waggin?”  Sure, that was something I could take care of on a sunny, beautiful, unusually warm February day.  Little did I know when I would arrive to pick up this food and supply delivery it would take 4 husky men and little ‘ole me to fill up my car from top to bottom and from front to back! (By the way, there are as many different volunteer opportunities as there are interests you have or time you have available…are you interested in helping? Then find out more about volunteering at Paws For Life!)

Johnny Dotson, owner of Redd Waggin Pet Supply Co., donated 100’s of pounds of cat and dog food as well as much needed kitty litter to Paws For Life.  As he states, “This is a truck worth chasing!” When we receive support in the way of food and supply donations from our community, it allows Paws For Life to allocate more money to medical treatment for the our rescues. Learn about donating here.

Thank you Johnny for showing such love right around Valentine’s Day and throughout the year with your thoughtful and generous donations!  #wecantdoitalone #bethedifference
