Tanya Jamieson’s love for animals was the reason she pursued a career in the veterinary field. Having completed Granville Business College’s veterinary office assistant program in 2000, Tanya went to work for a clinic in Squamish for five years before joining Scottsdale Veterinary Hospital as a receptionist, where she has remained for more than a decade. As Paws for Hope’s animal health clinic coordinator, she gets to see first-hand how far your dollars go toward helping people and their pets.
“I get to experience how grateful most of the people truly are,” she says, pointing to programs like SpayAid BC, where partnerships are made with veterinary hospitals to eliminate pet overpopulation across the province by providing spay/neuter assistance to low-income earners, with each partner hospital providing a 33 percent discount and the remaining cost is split evenly between Paws for Hope and the SpayAid BC recipient. “Their pets are truly a blessing and, for a lot of people, have helped them emotionally through very difficult situations.”
