Hot off the Press! - June 2024

We may be a few months away until December 2024, but we are hard at work planning a fun event—Santa Paws!

And please, absolutely no retractable leashes at this event. Straight leashes only. Thank you!

23rd Annual Dog Walk & Fundraiser

Our 23rd Annual Dog Walk/Fundraiser has been canceled. Actually Richard canceled it and has talked about why the event has been canceled in the Fall Newsletter and the Fall On-Line Fundraising Letter.

With the passing of Valerie and Drew it was too tough both emotionally and physically to pull this dog walk together. Valerie ran the registration table and had done so for years. Drew did all the schlepping and setting up. He actually led the walk on the grounds of the Westin, and earlier this year he told me how much he was looking forward to doing it again. He folded the commemorative t-shirts, picked up the food the day before, picked up gift certificates, etc. etc. etc. Without his help, at least for this year, my heart wasn't in it. Maybe next year!

Most of you who are on our email list will receive our Fall On-Line Fundraising Letter, please consider making a donation. Thank you all for your understanding!

Donations are critical to our ability to function. Your generous tax deductible donations help us to continue our cause.


Past Events

Take Your Dog to the Movies

We are quite sad to see this venue leave the valley because one of the owners, Brian Tabor, has always been so supportive of our non profit.

Joslyn Senior Center Health Fair

Their annual event was held every October. We were one of the 100 Vendors and always got dressed in costume for the spirit of Halloween.

Paws to Read

After 15 years of providing this program, we've made a lot of memories working with children to improve their reading skills, but we have decided to retire it for now.
