MWCR hosted a Collie Frolic in Milwaukee, a Collie Frolic in the Twin Cities, and will be hosting another Collie Frolic on October 4 in Madison. We participated in the No Kill Walk for Animals held at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds where Barb Gibson, along with Laddie and Emily, led the pack by raising $100 in pledges for MWCR. We had a booth at the expanded Canine Carnival held at the Wildlife Science Center outside Forest Lake, Minnesota where our dogs got up close and personal with the wolves, bears, and other wildlife.
In June, MWCR will have booths at the two most heavily attended events of the season – the Pet Expo held at the Minneapolis Convention Center on Saturday, June 13, and the CBS Radio Pet-A-Palooza on Saturday, June 27, at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds in Saint Paul. Over 10,000 attendees are expected at both of these events, so we will have great visibility for MWCR and our collies. We need more volunteers to help at both of these events, so let Cat (firstname.lastname@example.org) know if you can help for a few hours. This is the perfect way to show off your beautiful collie and talk with potential adopters. We truly appreciate the time our volunteers give to helping our rescue be more visible to both adopters and those who may, unfortunately, need to surrender a dog.
