>Bark in the Park

July 23, 2011


We all had a great time at Bark in the Park today!  We got to meet and talk with lots of people and most importantly so did the rescue pups!
Bo, Piper, Ellie and Finn were all on hand to do give out kisses and tail wags.

There were tonnes of fun demos to watch and great contests to enter.

There were lots of great dogs to visit with.  Some came dressed for the party, others met up with old friends.

And there were some familiar faces from the past too!

We managed to fundraise almost $1,000 today!!  Thanks to M&M Meats for doing the BBQ, Park Pet, NOKA, Pet Parade, Paws on the Run and Tail Blazers for coming to provide great information and a fun shopping experience.  Thanks to everyone who donated something for the raffle table!!  There were a tonne of great prizes and there were lots of people walking away happy that they had won.  We’ll have a list of all the great companies that donated prizes posted soon.  The list is so long, we need to double check it so we don’t forget anyone!  We really appreciate the support we receive from the community.  We couldn’t help as many dogs as we do without it.
And last but not least, thanks to everyone who came out today to support the rescue.  We hope you had as good a time as we did!  We’ll see you next year for Bark in the Park 3.

Our adoption fee allows us to provide the basics for the dogs in our care, but we are always encountering additional expenses (dental work, medicine for illnesses, etc.).  If you would like to help dogs like this one, but aren’t looking to adopt one at this time, please consider a donation.  Thank you.
