Good Morning Pet Lovers! As you may have seen from our updates on social media, we are heading to the Edmonton Pet Expo January 28-29th which isn’t very far away!! I got in contact with some rescues attending this years event and I will be doing some social media promoting for them, because I love rescues! The fifth rescue we are going to spotlight is Beagle Paws chapter located in Edmonton. We caught up with the coordinator May Sutherland for a little Q&A session. Cant wait to checkout their booth!
