Highlights from Our First Ever Wellness Event

A few weeks ago, we held our first ever Wellness Event at the adoption center. The day was filled with amazing vendors, a plethora of wellness tips, and treats of all kinds making for an unforgettable day. We want to thank all of our amazing vendors for being a part of the event and making it amazing for everyone that came by the center. From the amazing product giveaways to the breadth of knowledge shared in the seminars, here are just a few highlights from the weekend:

Our Wellness Event Seminars

  • Puppies and Yoga Mini Session with Yoga Works and Lorna Jane- This fun class incorporated relaxing yoga techniques and cute puppies. It was the perfect way to start the day and center ourselves.
  • Healing Animals through Reiki with Courtney Ortega-Zuco- Animal caregivers learned what reiki is, how reiki can help animals, and why it is an ideal Holistic Therapy for animals.
  • Pet Nutrition Essentials with Pussy & Pooch- We learned if we were feeding our carnivores the best diet for their true biological needs and learned how to understand how to recognize 'good vs bad' basic ingredients in pet food. We also learned the Big 5 'Myths' in pet nutrition and discovered what variety and choosing the 'right diet' for our dog have in common.
  • Alternative Therapies for Dogs with CARE- This workshop focused on canine preventative fitness, including targeted exercises, lifestyle enhancement, and diet & supplement recommendations. Implementing the information acquired at this workshop aided in optimizing quality of life, fitness, comfort, and overall vitality of pets.  Implementing the methods discussed will also add quality years to the life of our furry companions.
  • Essential Oils for Pets with Young Living Essential Oils- Learned how we can keep our fur babies happy and healthy with Young Living Essential Oils. We also learned what essential oils are and why they are so beneficial in addressing our pets (and humans) physically, mentally and emotionally.
