May events preview

mwcr logoThe Minnesota Wisconsin Collie Rescue will be participating in three dog events in May.  Hope you can either volunteer at our booth or stop by our booth while attending these fun events.

The Pause 4 Paws Adoption Event will be held on Sunday, May 1, from noon to 3 p.m. at the Fetch Delivers Warehouse located at 777 Harding Street NE in northeast Minneapolis.  In addition to many adoptable dogs and cats at the event, there will be games for kids and face painting, a food truck, a raffle, and samplings from Northgate Brewery located next door.  Pause 4 Paws always holds entertaining events for the entire family.

The American Cancer Society’s Bark for Life of Stillwater is a noncompetitive walk for dogs and their families to raise funds for the American Cancer Society and to honor people and pets who have been touched by cancer.  The walk will be held from 8:30 a.m. to noon at Barkers Alps Park located on 5th Avenue N. between Stagecoach Trail N. and 9th Street N. in Bayport, Minn.  Local dog trainer, author, and radio personality Katie K9 is on the planning committee for this event and reached out to several rescues, including MWCR.  Games, demonstrations, and contests will be held in addition to the walk.  This is MWCR’s first time at this event.

The Heart of Minnesota Animal Shelter in Hutchinson, Minn. will hold its annual Paws on Parade event from 9 a.m. to noon at the McLeod County Fairgrounds in Hutchinson.  The day includes a walk, demonstrations, a silent auction, games, and prizes.  Thanks to Robin Kashuba’s involvement and leadership, MWCR has participated in this event for several years.  It is always fun to see who participates in the walk besides dogs – sometimes cats, horses, and other pets.

Hope you can join us at these events which promote MWCR in our communities, showcase our gorgeous collies, and help other nonprofit organizations.
