when we started looking to adopt a dog we ran across this rescue group called Lucky Mutts. while we didn't end up getting our dog from them, i've been helping them promote their first big fund raising event. its a fun run/walk and festival. the festival is free and the 2-mile fun run is only $15 and you can sign up on their web site. here is some more info:
date: may 10
time: fun run starts at 9 a.m. festival goes from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
register and more info on their web site www.luckymutts.com
festival includes low-cost vaccination clinic, dog-related booths (like a doggie massage!), agility dog demonstrations, live music, kids activities, horse rides, arts and crafts, skydiving demonstrations, food and more!
i know we have a lot of runners/health addicts/those trying to lose weight on this board - so go sign up for the fun run (its only 2 miles!) and help out this dog rescue organization.
