A big thank you to everyone that came out to our event. Especially to the vendors and our wonderful volunteers.

Even tho we did not have a great turnout, we hope that all that attended had fun. We sure did and we loved the Doggie fashion show too!

With the combined events of our Awareness event and our Sneakers & Paws event we made just a little over $1,000.

Once again, thank you!
