MELISSA TOPPER HAS BEEN A GREAT SUPPORTER OF OVC’S PET TRUST PROGRAMME
When Melissa Topper, a Grade 5 student from Orono, Ontario, needed to choose a topic for a speech to be presented to her classmates, she decided talk about her friend Toby, a Golden Retriever who had died of spinal cancer at only two years of age, as well as Pet Trust’s role in advancing animal health. Melissa has also been a financial supporter of Pet Trust. She suggested to an entrepreneur, that they develop an aromatherapy spray for dogs. The spray, called “Toby” after her Golden Retriever, has been sold through veterinary offices and some Valu stores in Ontario. $1 from the sale bottle of spray is donated to Pet Trust.
