Alanna Cooper & Dave Prenoslo
Alanna and Dave have also shown they have amazing PADS spirit in the many ways they have supported others in the PADS community. From providing a place for staff or volunteers to stay while transporting puppies to lending a helping hand to PADS clients, to helping me set up and tear down at multiple events (when they were allowed) throughout the Okanagan. They have always been eager to provide support where and when they can.
Puppy Class Instructor, Nicole, experienced their hospitality when she needed a place to stay for transporting puppies from Calgary to the Lower Mainland. Not only were they happy to take in 3 puppies and a dog in Advanced Training, but they also eagerly helped by taking a middle-of-the-night puppy toileting shift!
Alanna and Dave also played a huge role in raising funds for PADS Okanagan by securing sponsorships from Telus & Scotiabank. Alanna having most recently received a donation on behalf of her team at Scotia Wealth Management, that enabled them to name a PADS puppy – and it was very exciting for them to name said puppy Scotia II, who is being raised in the Okanagan.
We thank them for their continued support of all things PADS Okanagan and their desire to see all aspects of the program grow and thrive.
They are well deserving of the Spirit of PADS award for the Okanagan for 2020.
