6th Annual Let the Paws do the Walkin’ Dog Walk and Fair
Saturday, October 4 2014, 9:00AM

3099 Morgan Dr
Wantagh, NY 11793

The goal of this event is to assist in raising the funds required to maintain our newly opened no-kill adoption center for our animals. We rescue many canine and feline friends; however, we must constantly try to acquire foster homes in order for the dogs to have a warm, loving place to rehabilitate following a shelter stay. This fundraising event has helped us achieve our dream.

We will have a blessing of the animals, raffle items, food, contests, vendors and more!! This is a kid, family and pet-friendly event.
