Join us for a pawsitively amazing celebration on International Dog Day!

Help us raise funds for the wonderful cause of Paws it Forward

Paws It Forward began in November 2011 when two friends, working in a pet store, learned about the helpless animals being euthanized at high-kill shelters in California in order to make space. After they enlisted their friends and family to help save over 50 dogs from being euthanized they were able to find loving homes for each one. As the network of people wanting to help grew, they were able to help more dogs. None of this would be possible without the countless volunteers and foster homes that helped them on their journey. Today Paws It Forward rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes hundreds of dogs from around the world who have been neglected, abandoned or abused every year.

By attending this heartwarming event, you contribute directly to Paws it Forward's lifesaving efforts. Your generous donations and participation will enable the organization to continue rescuing, healing, and rehoming dogs in need. Big White Ski Resort is kicking things off with a $1,000 donation directly to Paws it Forward.

Bring your furry friends, family and friends and be part of the celebration located in the Village Centre.
