The 7th Annual Walk-n-Wag was a great day filled with adorable dogs and their wonderful people. There was such a great turnout that we ran out of goodie bags and gave out every last one of our 250 yellow doggie bandanas! Volunteers from the community led fun, interactive events for people and their dogs, ranging from a Dog Walk Yoga class to leading simple dog tricks like “sit” and “roll over”. Family members of hospice staff and local Girl Scouts hosted ten dog activity stations for the Pawesome Challenge game, and the West Salem Titans Water Polo Team hosted a snack booth. Laurel and Zuzu of Creative Dance! wowed the crowd with their canine freestyle performance.
We are so grateful to Capitol Subaru, Mountain West, and Huggins Bliss, our major sponsors for the event! The funds we raised make it possible for Pet Peace of Mind® to pay for veterinary costs, grooming, pet food, and other needs, helping our hospice patients keep their animal companions close at the time when they need each other the most.
