I am sure you are all tugging at the leash for this event or rather your pooches are, but Sunday, October 2nd from 10-3 p.m. marks the third annual Hounds on the Sound Dog Walk and Festival at Glen Island Park in New Rochelle.
The Humane Society of New Rochelle and Pet Rescue have teamed up yet again, and it promises to be an exciting day of K-9 demonstrations, music, food, competition, vendors, a leisurely 1.5 walk with your pooches – and raising necessary funds for these two wonderful organizations while doing so. Lou Young of CBS News will be cutting the ribbon, and look for the Pet Rescue Booth where you will be able to purchase raffle tickets for the October 30th Giants vs. Miami Dolphins Game. 2 tickets to that game have been generously donated – and wait for it, they come with premium parking!
Sponsored walkers who obtain $100 or more will receive a “Hounds on the Sound T-Shirt,” and people who donate $100 or more will also receive a complimentary T-Shirt, and acknowledgement on the website and newsletter. People who donate more than $250 will receive not only that but also a trail marker sign with either your name or company’s name along the trail.
All donations are tax deductible. Any lat minute questions or inquiries, please email the organizations at Walk@ny-petrescue.org
It is the goal to save as many lives as possible for these wonderful animals (cats as well as dogs), so please join them on Sunday. Last year 1000 people attended with 400 dogs… I give that a 3 woofs, and promises to be another howling good time…
There will also be some cats and dogs on hand who would love to meet you and be adopted…
