This year has remained to be unpredictable through the pandemic with Covid-19 affecting us all. Our Team has pivoted yet again, to host our Puppy Cake Smash event virtually, ensuring DWW's strong commitment to maintaining our social responsibility for the safety of our guests, volunteers, and staff.
Stay tuned to meet two more recruits in the next couple of weeks to find out their names! We look forward to watching these puppies one day earn their wings as they carry out their journeys with two very special names related to our history.
Thank you for joining us yesterday to celebrate Knut’s Excellent Anniversary Day Adventure and our Bridge Light up Contest. Our volunteers, sponsors, donors, Board of Directors, staff, clients, and supporters walked or drove across the High-Level Bridge and snapped photos of their experience.
The winners of last night’s contest are DWW Chico (Tai & Chris) and DWW Woody (Kelsey & Sam), check out their photo below! #DWW25
Stay tuned for another fun contest DWW Knut will share with you next week!
This wraps up DWW Knut’s Excellent Anniversary Day Adventure. Thank you for being a part of DWW Knut’s Adventure and for your support along the way. Dogs with Wings is grateful to all the volunteers, sponsors, donors, Board of Directors, staff, clients, and supporters, both past and present.

Taking in some of the sites of Edmonton, DWW Knut stopped at some of his favourite spots. Today’s city tour of our beautiful hometown city included the Legislature Grounds, streets of Edmonton, Manchester Square, and City Hall.

DWW Knut loves to be a furry fundraiser and raise money for DWW. He has collaborated with many organizations including the DWW UofA Club, ATB Tap Dogs, and Mary Butterworth Junior High School - Hockey Helps Kids Campaign, to name a few.
DWW Knut is reminiscing about our two signature event locations. First up is our Annual Graduation Ceremonies, at the Chateau Louis Conference Centre, where we have hosted five graduation ceremonies. Next up is Knut at the DoubleTree Hilton Hotel, where we hosted our most successful Annual Gala to date. The Raise our Wings Gala in 2019 raised $225,000 for DWW. We look forward to returning to in-person events in the future to continue our mission of fostering independence and integration for individuals living with disabilities.
As DWW Knut continues his adventures to celebrate our 25th Anniversary, he made a special stop at Rogers Place. Knut and his friend DWW Booster are sending special CONGRATULATIONS to our friends the Edmonton Oilers and the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation. Way to go, Connor McDavid on his impressive record of 100 goals in 53 games this weekend!
