In late October, a Halloween fundraising event at Holiday House Pet Resort & Training Center raised $1,000 for the R.J. Leonard Foundation.
Holiday House clients received an official photo of their dog in costume in return for a small donation, the proceeds of which went to the R.J. Leonard Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to helping young adults aging out of the foster care system through mentoring and scholarships.
Holiday House holds several similar events throughout the year, each time in support of a different charity.
Caitlin Deppeler, director of the R.J. Leonard Foundation, has been taking her dogs to Holiday House for many years. She was thrilled with the support her organization received. “They have become family as they care for our family, and I am so excited that they are taking interest in a mission I hold close to my heart,” she said.
Dr. Laura Weis, who with her husband Dr. Randy Weis owns Holiday House as well as the Doylestown Veterinarian Hospital, remarked, “Giving back to local organizations that support the people and pets in our community is very important to everyone at Holiday House Pet Resort & Training Center. Our clients love the special photos of their pets, so including them as part of a fundraising effort creates a fun and meaningful event. We are so grateful to our generous clients for their overwhelming support.”
