Dogs YYC is really only a couple weeks old and the response from Calgary (and abroad, TBH) has been great!
Our business directory is picking up bit by bit and we have been taking signups for Dogs YYC membership. Dogs YYC T-shirts have begun to roll out already, too! So what out for our lovable mascot, the Info Puppy!
And there’s new stuff!
We’ve just added a new feature you can see from the front page here: Doggy Birthdays!
We know you love to spoil your puppy any day of the year, that means he just gets extra spoiled on his birthday. Sign up for a membership at Dogs YYC and then move on over to our little birthday sign up form and post your puppy’s birthday card! You just leave his name, a picture (with birthday hat, natch!), a little story, and we do the rest. You’ll see puppy’s birthday post on our Blog Page, our Facebook Page, and our Twitter Page! Don’t you forget to share it with your friends on social media as well!
Helpin’ the Puppies
In the brief time that Dogs YYC has been around, we have been having discussions about what best to do with the funds from our listings and our shop. Now don’t worry, needy puppies all over town are definitely still going to benefit from your purchases on Dogs YYC. As a listing business, you get the option of designating where the donated proceeds go. That hasn’t changed. What we have done is decided to use some of these funds to create a new dog shelter!
Creating a shelter for homeless puppies has been a long standing dream of ours and we thought we would try and make the best of it. There are shelters already around Calgary, we know this, but we also know that many of them are already being blown out with unwanted puppies. So the long term goal for Dogs YYC is to build a new dog rescue shelter.
We would love it if you’d join us!
Whether that portion of your purchase goes to our shelter plan or an existing one, or a foster organization like Pawsitive Match, you can rest assured that needy puppies in Calgary and the surrounding area will be a little better off because of it.
