WHISTLER, B.C. — Whistler Animals Galore (WAG), a non-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of homeless cats and dogs, is working to provide rehabilitation and care to animals in search of permanent homes. Its long-established partnership with Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre has seen a total of $45,674 donated to date, including this year’s sum of $4,030.

The partnership began in 2012. The hotel continues to donate to the shelter annually with funds generated from the year-round pet-stay fee and its Pamper Your Pet Package. When guests stay in a pet-friendly suite, $5 per night is donated to WAG. The hotel partners with Canadian businesses to incorporate items in the accommodation package, with treats from Northern Dog Biscuit Bakery and upcycled rope toys from Whistler’s local business Little Pine Pet included this year.

“As a proudly pet-friendly hotel, Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre is inspired by the work of Whistler Animals Galore and all the organization does for our local community,” says Julie Lanteigne, general manager. “WAG has been operating in Whistler for 42 years, and as we celebrate 12 years of our partnership, we look forward to the years to come while more animals find forever homes.”
