Paint Your Pet! A Fundraiser for Magnificent Mutts & Meows Rescue
Paint Your Pet! Elmhurst Animal Care Center happily invited clients, the Elmhurst community and animal lovers to participate in a Paint Your Pet Fundraiser to benefit rescue partner, Magnificent Mutts & Meows Rescue! The three hour class took place in our training room within the hospital where the talented staff at Pinot's Palette Elmhurst guided the class - everything from brush use to color selection. The portraits turned out amazing and are a wonderful keepsake for those participating! A portion of each registration benefitted our hard-working rescue partners at Magnificent Mutts & Meows Rescue. The event also hosted a silent auction for additional fundraising opportunities.
Free Microchip Clinic Event
In conjunction with Magnificent Mutts & Meows Rescue and the Girl Scouts, we hosted our first ever Free Microchip clinic. Community members were welcome to attend the clinic and get their pet microchipped at no cost. Special thanks to the Girl Scouts for raising money to purchase microchips and Magnificent Mutts & Meows Rescue for providing them and filling out the necessary paperwork! A huge thank you to our team of veterinary technicians for their expertise and microchipping all these pets, we couldn’t have done it without you!
Scouts & School Groups: Education and Tours
Throughout the year, we get involved with our local community in a variety of ways. We play host to many Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and School Groups, who all want to learn about what we do. If you have a scout or school group interested in taking a tour, please send an email to email@example.com.
Is Puppy Yoga really a thing? It sure is and it's for a great cause! Participants at Puppy Yoga at Elmhurst Animal Care Center were able to play and cuddle with adoptable pups while a beginners yoga class was taught.
All funds raised went to Elmhurst Animal Care Center's rescue partners at Magnificent Mutts & Meows Rescue.
Yoga: Cats & Mats
With the goal of encouraging wellness and developing healthy habits, we teamed up with Magnificent Mutts and Meows Rescue for a couple of fun, feline filled yoga classes! The two classes we’ve held so far have allowed us to raise money for our local rescue friends and we’ve have been having a blast during this fun, beginner level class instructed by a long-time yogi. Many of the adoptable cats and kittens wandering around the room have found their forever homes as well!
