This year, when we heard that our local animal shelter was in need of support, we decided to tackle a huge challenge by organizing an event to support both the Town of Easton Animal Shelter as well as the Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation. We are proud to present: “Wet Kisses And Dirty Paws”, an AKC® Responsible Dog Ownership Day, organized by the Easton Leos in collaboration with the Trap Falls Kennel Club.
I’m very excited to be working on this, but also a bit nervous because we have never worked on a project of this scale before. However, we’re ready to take the “bull by the horns” and pull this off, which I know we can. We’ve made many secret plans and discussed a lot within the group, Marnie Waiwat from the Easton Animal Shelter and the members of Trap Falls Kennel Club. I wouldn’t want to give away too much of the festivities that are going to be taking place that day, September 4th 2010, if you were wondering.. ……….but I think that I can give you an impression, so Spoiler Alert for the dog day! We’re planning to have contests, vendors, raffles, a silent auction, fun things to do for dogs, kids and much much more…..
I can guarantee you that this day will be a lot of fun for the whole family, young and old, and your four legged friend! Not only will it be tons of fun, by attending you’re also supporting two great causes. The Leo Club will not keep any of the profits, and we don’t want to either, we’d much rather see it all go to Fidelco and the Easton Animal Shelter and help out the dogs that need a home and people with visual impairments that are waiting on a Fidelco guide dog.
Now who wouldn’t want to help out Madeline at the dog shelter?
Or sponsor a Fidelco puppy, they’re absolutely irresistible and lifesavers for the visually impaired!
More on the Dog Day in future posts.
Don’t forget, SAVE THE DATE SEPTEMBER 4TH 2010
