Enterprise Rent-a-Car and Tetra Tech Make Donation!

Marla Mooney and Amber Audette (Tetra Tech)

We’d like to thank our friends at Enterprise Rent-a-Car for their generous donation of $1,500 on behalf of their client, Tetra Tech.

Did you know that Tetra Tech also sponsored our Facility Dog, DWW Ringo (Ringo VSU) when he was in his training program?  Our friends at Tetra Tech, named Dogs with Wings as their charity of choice, recommending Enterprise Rent-a-Car utilize funds from their foundation to donate to Dogs with Wings! 

As a registered non-profit organization, we do not receive any sustainable government funding, and rely solely on donations and sponsorships within our community.  Our Ditch-the-List Campaign began in June of 2017; an effort to raise $1.5 million to reduce the numbers of Albertans on our waiting list for assistance dogs.

This generous donation has been directly applied to our Ditch-the-List Campaign, where our team has been working very hard to achieve our goals of matching finished dogs with clients in need.  To date, we have raised over $700,000, taking us over the half-way point of our Campaign!  We’re excited to share that as of November 1st, we have been able to re-open our waiting list to those who are in need of a Guide dog, Facility dog or a Companion dog!

Once again, thank you to Tetra Tech, for your continued support, and to Enterprise Car Rentals, for your philanthropic efforts!  Your donation will go a long way in helping us to “Ditch-our-List”!

Kids of Alberta Social Media Campaign


Shaw Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink (BFK) is looking for Dogs with Wings Kids of Alberta who would like to share their story for their “Kids of Alberta” Social Media Campaign on how a DWW Assistance Dog has impacted their life, and their family’s lives.


‘Kids of Alberta’ Social Media Campaign – Accepting JULY Submissions!

As you may have seen on the @ShawClassic social media accounts over the past few weeks, several Birdies for Kids charities have been featured with their Kids of Alberta impact stories.


What BFK is looking for:

  • A photo of a youth, or a drawing they have done that can be shared on Facebook and Instagram. Please send high quality photos. If you wish to be anonymous, your face does not need to be in the photo. For example, one of the charities sent in a drawing that one of their youth did representing how they felt.
  • A very short story or quote (MAX 150 WORDS) written from the perspective of the child about one of the following (BFK is open to all creative suggestions!): their story or the struggles they are facing, how Dogs with Wings has helped them, why or how they got involved with DWW, a dream they may have, or a quote from them, etc.

BFK is hoping to share all submissions, but depending on the amount they receive, they may not be able to share all stories. Please do not send submissions longer than 150 words, as we do not have the capacity to edit all of the stories down to the 150 word maximum. Checkout BFK’s social media pages @ShawClassic, if you are looking for some inspiration!
