April is pet appreciation month at Bosley's Pet Food Plus and they are raising money and supplies for local abandoned and abused animals.
The charity that Bosley's is supporting this year is SAINTS, (Seniors in Need Today Society) a pet shelters that takes care of abused, abandoned, or special-needs elderly animals, explained Bosley's manager Rosemary Mustill.
Mustill told me that SAINTS (has a wide range of senior animals, from dogs and cats, to pigs and bunnies and goats.
"It's quite nice to retire like that," Mustill said.
Currently SAINTS, which is in Mission, has 31 dogs (plus seven in permanent foster care), 39 cats, 13 rabbits, three sheep, three horses, one chicken, one rooster, four ducks, two potbellied pigs, a farm pig, two jerseys, one Holstein, three goats, and a llama.
Visit Bosley's at 22745 Dewdney Trunk Rd. in April and purchase a PAW coupon for $1, $2, $5, or $10. For every $5 donated, Bosley's will give you a
$5-off voucher for the next purchase.
