Big Thanks to Vancouver Career College!

Pets Help People Fundraiser

Community. That’s the word that comes to my mind as we walked into Vancouver Career College’s Coquitlam campus on the morning of September 29.

A warm reception from staff, faculty and students, the whole campus welcomed Sue, our Fundraising Committee Chair and board member, her two Great Pyrenees, Decca and Tilly, and me to the presentation room. They listened intently as we talked about Pets and Friends and the stories shared by our pet therapy team volunteers.

At their inaugural “Pets Help People Fundraiser” event, the campus raised over $200 in donation through their bake sale!

Thank YOU to everyone at Vancouver Career College – Coquitlam campus, for promoting the healing power of animals and raising funds for this important cause. Your support means a lot to all of us.

Joanna Li, Program Manager
