Let's give some applause to the paws! Waterview Animal Hospital in Miramichi recently held its First Annual School Supply Drive during the month of August, and donated nearly $600 in school supplies to the Anglophone North School District.
Throughout August, Waterview Animal Hospital offered free nail trims to pets when their owners donated a school supply item. The hospital also donated all cash payments from their regular clients' nail trims, and then used that cash to purchase additional school supplies for the drive.
