(Whistler, BC)  Every time a pet stays at Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre, the hotel donates $5.00 to WAG, the animal shelter in Whistler. On July 10th, the team from Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre donated $3,325.00 from PAWS at Pan Pacific, the hotel’s pet stay program.

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.

Lloyd Daser, General Manager of the Pan Pacific Whistler announced, “My key responsibility as the new GM at Pan Pacific Whistler is to listen to my team and respond to their cues. I was delighted to hear the passion our staff has for the WAG program. Last year our property donated $661 to Whistler Animals Galore (WAG). This year we have been able to donate over $3,000 to this compassionate Whistler organization, assisting the pets and homeless animals in Whistler.”

This year’s donation was raised from pet stays between May 2012 and June 2013.
