Pet Connection Programs Inc., a maternity and special care animal shelter located in Marilla, will hold its sixth annual “Tails on the Trails” dog walk from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 4, at the Como Lake Park Casino in Lancaster. Proceeds from the event will benefit the animal shelter, founded in 1984.
“We are excited about Tails on the Trails as it brings out so many pet owners and their favorite four-legged friends to help our homeless animals at the shelter,” said Julie Garvey, president of Pet Connection Programs Inc. “The people who participate in this event know that just a little bit of extra effort can help save a dog or cat’s life, and we appreciate that.”
In addition to the dog walk, there will be raffles, a basket auction, vendors and plenty of food all day. Other activities and demonstrations include a “good citizen” dog test, pet blessing, pet psychic, pet first aid, dog agility, face-painting and much more. Pet contests will include “best-dressed dog” and “best dog trick.”
Registration is just $15 prior to May 27, and $25 after May 27. The walker collecting the highest amount in pledges will receive a prize valued at $1,000! Second prize is $500 worth of gift certificates, and third prize is a pet gift basket. For more information or to pre-register, or to donate a basket for the auction, please call 652-0192.
