A big thank you to our guests - Petland continued to fundraise, after the initial $10,000 donation, to support the Ukrainian Canadian Congress and raised an additional $17,000 to help Ukrainian newcomers to Canada with their pets.

Barbara and Robert Brissette, owners of Petland Canada, are proud to partner with the Ukrainian Canadian Congress to support newly arrived Ukrainian families with pets.
Many newly arrived Ukrainian families find comfort with their pets and by working together, we hope to make joyful memories and create hope for brighter days ahead. Our goal is to help provide supplies so their pets have a great start and to spoil them with toys, treats and so much more.
Petland has donated $10,000 in gift cards to the Ukrainian Canadian Congress and will be fundraising in their corporate stores across Western Canada Nov 4-18. All monies raised will go directly to the Ukrainian Canadian Congress to help newly arrived Ukrainians and their pets.
