On January 11, 2019, the Rexall Foundation invited Dogs with Wings to visit the Stony Plain Rexall store to receive a $5,000 donation from funds raised by their Northern Alberta/Saskatchewan district store teams! In September 2018, Rexall stores across Canada held an in-store “Make a Difference” fundraising bubble campaign, where funds raised were donated to local charities across Canada to support children and seniors. We are extremely grateful for the generosity of the Rexall Foundation, Rexall store employees, patients and customers who contributed to this amazing donation!
A huge thank you also goes out to the entire community! The Rexall stores in the Northern Alberta/Saskatchewan districts, raised the most funds during the fundraiser and this generous donation to Dogs with Wings could not have happened without the support of the Rexall Foundation and its community supporters. This donation was applied to our Ditch-the-List Campaign, taking Dogs with Wings another step closer to achieving our goal to reduce the numbers of clients on our waiting lists for Assistance dogs.
In just nine months, we were able to re-open our waiting lists to the public for Guide dogs, Facility dogs and Companion dogs. Our team is working very hard on our next milestone to re-open our waiting lists for our Service dogs and Autism Service dogs. Visit our website regularly for news and updates on our progress.
