Our first Trim Claws For A Cause charity event held on July 15, 2012 was a success!
We offered nail trims for any dog, cat or pocket pet in exchange for a donation of 2 canned goods or a monetary donation. We also sold hotdogs, drinks, raffle tickets (for some pretty awesome prizes) and bandanas. All the proceeds were donated to the WINDSOR DOWNTOWN MISSION. The staff of South Windsor Animal Hospital (and some of their family) came and volunteered their time to help out with this event.
We had many clients and non-clients attend and we were so grateful to all.
In the end, we raised more than $340 and 400lbs of food! That was more than 340 cans of food along with cereal, boxed macaroni, baby food and pasta.
We greatly appreciate all the pet owners who attended and donated to this great cause. The Downtown Mission was extremely greatful for our support and donation. If you are unsure of what the Downtown Mission does, we highly recommend calling them or visiting them and they will be more than willing to show you. They are always looking for volunteers and donations. We are fortunate and lucky that we have the ability to help out a great organization like this.
Thanks and hope to see you at the next event!
