Happy New Year! As the New Year begins to unfold, I want to wish you and yours a year filled with good health, love, happiness and a lot of laughter. It is at this time of year, we tend to take a moment to reflect back on the passing year andhink of all the possibilities the New Year can bring.

I wanted to take a moment to update you on our current endeavor involving Piper, the dog. As you may know, Piper was rescued by the LEASH Rescue Society in Manitoba. She was found abandoned, malnourished and with a litter of puppies. We had the opportunity to meet this beautiful black lab, and realized that we needed to help her. Upon examination, we realized that she required extensive dental surgery and needed a forever home.
The Healing Paws team fell in love with Piper and decided to help her get the treatment she needed. So, an Open House fundraiser was organized for Dec 18th. Thanks to the generosity of our amazing clients and the team, we raised over $500 for Piper's procedure and care!

In addition, Dr. Alberto has graciously agreed to perform the dental surgery free of charge on his own time, and Healing Paws will donate the remaining costs. Piper's surgery was scheduled for Tuesday, January 12th.
And some more good news: Piper may have found her forever home! Paperwork and site visit must still be approved so we will keep you posted.
We will be able to treat Piper and follow through with her adoption due to the generosity of our clients, Dr. Alberto and the Healing Paws team. This success story would not be possible without you. On behalf of Piper, the team and myself, thank you!
