Hip, hip, hooray! Hundreds of stuffies have been donated to the Comox Valley Healthcare Foundation through our local PetSmart store in Courtenay (Unit 700 – 444 Lerwick Rd). Big thanks to PetSmart and to all their generous customers who add a stuffed animal to their purchases whilst shopping for their beloved pets.

We sure appreciate how everyone has rallied around our Paediatric Stuffed Animal Program to ensure our youngest patients are comforted with a soft furry friend upon receiving care at the Comox Valley Hospital.

PetSmart’s stuffed animal drive will continue until the end of December. Stuffies for the hospital cost $6 or you can buy one for your pet and $1 goes to charity.
