2012 Ottawa Humane Society Wiggle Waggle Walkathon

Loving Paws & House Sitting was delighted to participate in the Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) Wiggle Waggle Walkathon again this year on September 9th, 2012.  We have proudly participated in the event each year since 2005, and sponsored the walkathon for the last 3 years, in order to raise funds for the Ottawa Humane Society.  It is a great feeling to be able to give back to the pets in our community in need of care and of loving forever homes by helping raise $170,000!

The event also brings all of our team members together, and enables us our team of sitters to all spend time together for a great cause, be readily available to personally introduce ourselves to prospect clients, and to socialize our pups as well. What a fun day!
This year the walkathon was held at Bruce Pit for the first time.  It was a nice change of scenery, and the day was an absolutely beautiful one, perfect day for walking and socializing the dogs. 

We had the opportunity to meet with so many different types of dogs, and their wonderful pet parents, and to discuss with them the many different in-your-homepet sitting services that we provide to our clients.

This year, we wanted to do something extra for the event, and decided to have a raffle.  It was a huge success, and was a great way for us to raise extra money for the Ottawa Humane Society.  We hope to make this a new tradition, and plan on having another raffle next year. 

It was wonderful meeting with all of our team members once again this year, and with all of the animal lovers and their furry friends.  We look forward to seeing you all again at next year’s Wiggle Waggle Walkathon!

To meet our local team members please visit our Ottawa, Gatineau and Smiths Falls team pages.
