We are rebuilding after the fire that destroyed our shelter building
Our 2018 Halloween Dog Walk date is scheduled for Sunday October 21st. We will have sponsored walk circuits for 1 mile and 3 mile walks, with music, stalls, a raffle, and prizes – so start assembling your sponsors now! You can choose your dog-walk, with a choice between a 3 mile circuit (group dog-walk starts at 11:15 am) and a 1 mile circuit (dog walk starts at 12:00 noon). Please see the dog walk event page for more information and to download the sponsor form for dog-walkers.
The Sweetpea Golf Tournament on August 26th was a really great day of golfing, raffles, and fun! We raised approximately $7800 which will be put toward the Shelter rebuilding costs. This is a brilliant contribution (although we still have a long way to go). You can read the report and see a list of hole sponsors on the Golf Tournament page.
Special thanks should go to the tournament committee: Tom & Gabby Savage, Jennifer & Jim Parisi, and Bonnie Courtemanche. We also thank the volunteers that helped with the tournament: Kelly, Aimee, Jordyn, Andrea — and Sarah who sang for us at lunch. With a shout out to the Dan Sobol of DSFX Graphics for doing the tournament signs.
Thank you to our event sponsors: Cole Contracting, The Brian Moore Team at Fairway Independent Mortgage, and Fidelity Bank – and thank you to all the hole sponsors (listed on the Golf Tournament page).
Fundraising & Progress Report
The new shelter foundations, floor and wiring are now in place. See update photos and status reports on the Shelter page!
Our recent golf tournament raised $7,800 for the shelter, but we still have a long way to go until we can proceed further with construction. We are dependent on the generosity of supporters. Please contribute to our GoFundMe Appeal (linked in right margin).
Our Spring Dog Walk was held on Sunday April 22nd, 2018. We had lots of music, food, and fun …. as well as a little rain. It is your support that keeps us going as we start on rebuilding our lost animal shelter. Our friends continue to help with fundraising – many thanks to Juno, of Juno’s place, for her help!
