Pan Pacific Whistler supports Whistler Animal Galore (WAG) Program

Whistler Animal Shelter Reaps the Rewards when Pets Stay at Pan Pacific Whistler

May 15, 2012 - (Whistler, BC) As part of its commitment to care for the wider community, the team at Pan Pacific Whistler Hotels will be making a donation to WAG (Whistler Animals Galore), the Whistler animal shelter, to support the homeless animals in Whistler. Each time a pet stays in Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre CA$5.00 will be donated to WAG.

At Pan Pacific Whistler each member of any family is made to feel welcome, comfortable and happy while staying at the all-suite luxury properties.   This is equally true for the four-legged guests. Pets are not only welcome to join in on a family vacation but encouraged to stay at Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre.

The Pan Pacific Team has a passion for pets that extends well beyond the front doors of the hotels. It was the Service One Associates who suggested the WAG program to the Management Team, asking to have a $5 donation from each pet guest stay be donated to the local shelter. This team wants to pamper pets while in the hotel, and comfort those pets who still looking for a family to love.

Jim Douglas, General Manager of the Pan Pacific Whistler said, “We will be making a CA$661 donation to WAG, representing approximately CA$5 per pet guest who stayed with us since the beginning of 2012. We feel the caregivers at WAG truly embody the generous spirit we Whistler residents feel. Whistlerites support and look after one another, including animals that have yet to find their homes.” The donation program will continue throughout 2012, with Jim and his team making regular donations to WAG.

When guests check in at Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre with a four-legged friend, they will receive a fabulous amenity package, including: 

  • Food & water bowls
  • Blanket
  • Pet Card to hang outside the door for notification
  • Dog treats
  • Biodegradable poop bags

Dog lovers who wish to support this worthy cause need do no more than bring Fido, Rover, Mitzi or Scruffy along to TripAdvisor’s pick for top 25 Family Hotels in Canada. The Pan Pacific Whistler Team is ready for the entire family!
