Caring for homeless & pets

Alanna Kelly

Dogs and cats received the full pampering treatment at Cornerstone Shelter in Kelowna on Sunday.

Local veterinarians groomed and cared for pets of homeless people at the Pet Fair People Care event.

Lauren Larson, co-ordinator with community veterinarian outreach, says there is nothing like the bond between people and their pets, no matter their financial situation.

She said the pets they saw on Sunday were very well socialized.

“They get a lot of time meeting other people, even the cats are trying to play with dogs and people, versus cats that might be living in a home or apartment,” she said.

Cornerstone manager Andrea Sage said the event was an opportunity for people living on the streets to have their pets cared for.

“We care … we care about you, and we care about your pets,” said Sage. “This community does care about everyone.”

Farfield Animal Hospital, Interior Health and Shoppers Drug Mart made the day possible.
