This years’ Dog Jog once again was a BIG SUCCESS! It is because of all of you who hold a special place in your heart for the animals who are both a part of your families and for those who deserve the opportunity to have a loving home. We could not do it without you!
This is a great example of all of us working together as a community to make a difference one animal at a time. Together we raised over $38,000 in both monetary and donated items. When you took a moment to look around during the event you could see the love everyone has for their animals and vise versa, it makes what we do so much more worth the time and effort!
