West Hartford Pet Sitters Sponsor Booth at Popular Spring Festival
By Steven Block
For the eighth consecutive year, West Hartford Pet Sitters owned by long-time Our Companions volunteers Kim and Wayne Thomas, will be sponsoring a booth for Our Companions at the Celebrate West Hartford festival on June 7th and 8th on the grounds of West Hartford Town Hall.
Visitors at the event will be able to interact with Our Companions volunteers and learn about the Our Companions mission. Booth visitors can also enter raffles and make donations to support the continuous goal of “doing the right thing for animals.”
Established in 2006, West Hartford Pet Sitters offers a wide-range of services to citizens of West Hartford and neighboring towns including in-home pet sitting, daily walking and care, vacation services, puppy education, and assistance with common needs such as nutrition and basic obedience.
Owners Kim and Wayne Thomas began volunteering with Our Companions in 2006. Wayne has participated in the Canine College Program while both Kim and Wayne have participated in the Our Companions Ambassador program and fundraising efforts. The Thomas family continues to publicize the work of Our Companions whenever possible.
“We’ll pretty much do whatever we can to spread the word about an event going on,” said Kim Thomas. “We’ll always feature a pet on our website and give new clients a brochure.”
In anticipation of the annual Celebrate West Hartford festival, West Hartford Pet Sitters will also be donating $1 for each additional “like” receive on their Facebook page.
The event, which attracts over 35,000 visitors each spring, is on Saturday, June 7th from 10am to 6pm and Sunday, June 8th from Noon to 6pm.
