Tails of Help Month has been extended to November 11!
Due to unexpected delay in shipping of our free TOH Month kits,
we have decided to extend Tails of Help Month through to Friday November 11th.
Thank you again for registering for our first ever Tails of Help Month fundraising campaign! It’s great to have you on board and we look forward to partnering with you.
To add even more fun, challenge and invite your friends/rivals at another clinic, pet supply store, or other neighbouring business, to participate in Tails of Help Month with a little head-to-head competition, and make some kind of friendly wager between groups - losing team buys doughnuts for the winners or hosts them at a barbecue or washes their cars or whatever you think would be fun.
