Each year, members of the Edmonton Association of Small Animal Veterinarians and their associated veterinary clinics join forces with their clients, family and friends to collect donations of NEW and some gently used stuffed animals! St. Albert Animal Clinic is pleased to participate in collections this year.
The donations are sorted and given to the children (patients of the Children's Stollery Hospital) who attend Dreamnight at the Zoo.
For the last two years, over 700 stuffed animals have been given away!!
At the Teddy Bear Hospital, families get to interact with real veterinarians and veterinary technologists while they remove foreign bodies from our stuffed surgery dogs, participate in various interactive displays, bandage their stuffies (and themselves!) and provide basic stuffed veterinary care to their newly adopted pets.
