Puppy Cake Smash

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.

We hope you enjoy this video of how the puppies celebrated!  As we continue to look for ways to have all of us celebrate this incredible milestone together, please know your commitment and dedication to Dogs with Wings allows us to continue fulfilling our mission and transform lives!

Shaw Birdies for Kids 2021

Did you know that all donations made through Shaw Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink will be matched up to 50% making your donation go even further?

Dogs with Wings is one of the more than 200 charity partners for the Shaw Charity Classic Birdies for Kids initiative presented by AltaLink. This program is designed to help raise new funds for local charities, engage the community in the tournament, and provide matching funds for each charity involved. Donations are matched up to 50% and all administrative costs are covered by the tournament, meaning DWW receives 100% of all donations donated through the program. 

On top of the donation matching program, Shaw and their partners have also introduced #ChipinforKids, a text to donate initiative.  

Dogs with Wings and Shaw invite you to Chip in for Kids by texting KIDS091 to 30333 to donate $10! To make your generous contribution go further, Shaw will match your donation and the matched donation amount will then be matched again by the Shaw Charity Classic, up to an additional 50. Your $10 donation can grow into a donation of $30 to Dogs with Wings! You can text up to 10 times per billing cycle for your cell phone, and your donation will be added to your mobile phone bill. Please note tax receipts will be issued by Mobile Giving Foundation Canada, rather than Dogs with Wings. This initiative runs until August 15th.  

If you have any questions or require further information, please phone us at (780) 944-8011, or email us at info@dogswithwings.ca 

Thank you for your generous support of Dogs with Wings as we continue to enact our mission to foster integration and independence for individuals with disabilities by providing them with highly trained Assistance Dogs and aftercare.

DWW Un-Gala Graphic

Unfortunately, due to the impact of Covid-19, we have had to cancel our annual Raise Our Wings Gala scheduled for October 17, 2020, our largest fundraiser of the year!

Although we are not hosting an in-person event this year, we thought we could have a little fun with the event’s nickname and still raise some funds by "selling tickets" and "hosting an auction" - without there being any event to attend nor any items to bid on.....truly living up to the event’s nickname of the UN-GALA!

I would love to support DWW and participate in the UN-Gala!

$250 “Let’s Go to the UN-Gala Package”
I would have purchased 2 Gala tickets, 2 drinks and an Auction item. So glad I can stay home and order in!
 $500 “UN-Living it Up Package”
I would have purchased 2 Gala tickets, a bottle of wine, 2 drinks, an Auction item, and made a donation.
 $1,000  “UN-Decked Out Package”
I would have purchased 4 Gala tickets, 4 drinks, a bottle of wine, 2 Auction items, bought a new dress or shirt & tie, visited the salon or barber and hired a sitter.
$2,000   “UN-Entourage Package”
I would have purchased a Table, 2 bottles of wine, 2 Auction items, bid on a Live Auction item, and my guests would have all made a donation.
 $___________ “You UN-Name it Package”
Here is my donation. I have created my own amount.
Your tax deductible donation will provide the funds needed for our dogs-in-training programming and change lives for the better.
"The love of dogs is so great and to have not just their love ... but their support, trust and guidance - is life-changing. I have seen firsthand the difference a DWW dog can make to a person; how much their lives have changed when they have paired with their service dog!
On the flip side, I've seen the amazing amount of love that the DWW dog gets back from their client - who ultimately becomes their family and it's overwhelming. DWW service dogs are the only LOVE money can buy! It's powerful.
I am so disappointed that I won't get to host this year, but I know that you will continue to support this amazing organization at their UN-Gala.”

Raise Our Wings UN-Gala Host

Our UN-Gala Auctioneer Colin, dropped by Dogs with Wings to practice his skills! While he won't get to showcase them for you this year, our Service Dogs loved practicing with him. Check out this video!

This year, we invite you to support the Raise Our Wings UN-Gala! Your ticket "donation" will provide the funding needed to train exceptional Assistance Dogs to be placed with future clients.
