Walk-a-thon Slideshow

Can you believe it?!  We have been holding our Annual Pat McGee Memorial Dog Walk-a-thon for 10 years now!  We appreciate everything this community does to show their support for our many animal orphan friends. Check out our slideshow (above) of previous dog walks.

Come join us for a fun-filled day with your four-legged companion(s).  You don’t have a dog?  Come and watch the fun.  There will be all kinds of doggie contests, including a Frisbee dog catching contest, and a Dachshund race.  Bring your company that may be visiting you that day.  They will enjoy Point Gratiot Park along with one of the nicest dog walks around.

We will also be holding the drawing to win the Grill!  See detailed announcement about this great raffle for summer on our home page.  Make sure you get your tickets. 

Registration Time: 9-10:00 a.m. at Point Gratiot Park in Dunkirk, New York.  Walk will begin at 10:15 a.m.*  

*In case of rain, the walk will be held on June 29, 2014.  Registration Time: 1-2:00 p.m.  Walk to begin at 2:15 p.m.

Please print off the registration form and bring it with you.  You may download the form in this announcement.
