Lola has been at WAG two very long years...She was originally brought to WAG in an RCMP seizure when her owners were arrested in Whistler, and they never came back to get her.

She was extremely traumatized during that arrest, and subsequently being brought to WAG in the middle of the night. It was even suspected she may have ingested, or been exposed to drugs. She spent her first night at WAG sick, terrified, alone, and vomiting.

The next morning, when staff arrived and discovered our new arrival and learned her story, we were very cautious and unsure of her temperament, so went very slow. She had a chain around her neck, her leash was caught under the kennel door, and she needed to be moved into a clean kennel. After some creative thinking, we managed to get her into another kennel - we were not sure how she would react to us, but after the night she had just had, the poor girl just wanted someone to cuddle her! So we did...

And that is how Lola's journey at WAG began...

At many other shelters, Lola would have been euthanized immediately due to her behavior issues - thankfully she ended up at WAG where we are happy to work with the less than "perfect" dogs!

Though WAG has become Lola's temporary home, and it is amazing compared to many other places and situations, it is still a shelter. She spends much of her time during the day alone and all night locked in a room by herself. The staff and volunteers' time is always being divided between her and all the other animals at the shelter that need our attention.

What Lola really wants, needs, and deserves, is a home of her own and a family of her own - after two years, maybe you can help us make that happen?

Now we are asking for your help to Find Lola a Home! Follow her story on social media, share, tag, highlight, email, forward, and anything else you can do to get her story out there - we know there is someone out there that is her Perfect Match and can give her all that she deserves!

Some of her requests and requirements:

-A secure, fenced-in yard.
-A quiet area with access to rural, quiet trails.
-You are a lady with no roommates/tenants/shared entrances/kids.
-You own your own home.
-You live a quiet lifestyle with few visitors.
-Pro-Muzzle!
-Has a vehicle.
-Experienced with large dogs.
-Physically strong.
-Does not need to be super athletic! She is a big cuddly couch potato.
-Will find a secluded spot for her to SWIM!
-Will continue to work with a WAG approved trainer.

Check out her adoption profile here.

Grass Wanted!

This is our dog run.... it is pretty nice but do you know what would make it even nicer??

GRASS!

Our dogs love to chew and roll and play in the grass, so because we cannot do any large scale landscaping, we are asking for donations of SOD or SEEDS!

Grass seed, clover seeds, wildflowers, any flowers, whatever you have, we will try to grow!

Contact us for more information or to arrange a donation drop off, OR just leave it at our front door!

Thank you for your support!

WAG’s COZY QUILT RAFFLE…with WINE!

Mady Krimele is a textiles artist from Pemberton, BC, who specializes in indigo dyeing and hand sewing.

For the past 4 years she has been experimenting with unconventional quilting. By not following any traditional patterns Mady follows her instincts by playing with rough sized scrap materials. Her designs are simple yet more complicated than they may seem. Every piece of fabric has a special place in the quilt and memory attached to it. They are measured by the eye and followed by the feeling of her gut. All fabrics are sustainably sourced from local thrift stores, old clothes, and her travels abroad. Nothing is randomly chosen. Nothing is measured by a ruler of any sort. Everything flows but doesn’t follow any rules.

Maddy generously donated this quilt to help support the animals of WAG - we threw in a bottle of wine because, well, wine not?!

Enter our quilt raffle and you could be cozied up in this quilt with your significant fur-other drinking a delicious bottle of See Ya Later Ranch Unleashed 2008 Pinot Noir in no time!

Only $5 per entry, $20 for five!

TO ENTER:

1) CLICK HERE!
2) Input the amount you wish to donate
3) Select the FUND of ‘WAG's Cozy Quilt Raffle (with wine!) $5 per entry, $20 for five’.
4) Fill out all required fields, especially your NAME and CONTACT INFO.
5) Include any other notes you wish to add.

Names will be entered into our draw box and announced on JUNE 1st!

We will have the quilt on display outside of WAG each afternoon if you would like to come check it out - thank you for your support!
