Lab Rescue Walk 2016

WOOF!! My friend "Lab Lady" shared with me details of the 2016 Lab Rescue Dog Walk which is celebrating 25 years of saving Labs on Sunday, May 15, 2016!

I met "Lab Lady" several years ago.  I contacted her after reading about the rescue in a local newspaper.  Barkingly pawsome, we've been friends ever since. She keeps me up to date with all the Lab Rescue's work and introduces me to Labs who need humans and "Forever Homes" so I can share them with you through my column, "Friday's Friend!"

"Lab Lady" shares with me, "In 1991, a group of Lab lovers recognized the need to rescue Labs that lost their homes. 2016 is the year we celebrate our 25th Anniversary and it's the year that we anticipate reaching a lifetime number of Labs saved of 15,000!"

"To celebrate, this year's 'Walk' is dedicated to those 15,000 lives saved. Join Lab Rescue as they celebrate the Labs and the countless volunteers who have made it possible for us to meet two great milestones in one year!"

Barkingly pawsome! Get out your walking shoes along with your furry best buddy and help raise funds for Lab Rescue.  Here are few things to know and keep in mind-

  • The walk is an easy mile at the Quiet Waters Park.  The trail runs through the wood so staying cool should be easy. 
  •  A wide variety of shopping, eating, and entertainment choices will be available.
  • All dogs are welcome- don't have to be a Labrador Retriever to participate! Nor, does the dog have to be one rescued by Lab Rescue- this is a "Pawty" for ALL dogs!  WOOF!
  • There will be food and water for humans and dogs- a few talented bakers will be setting up a bake sale!!  And, BOTTOMLESS WATER BOWLS!!  WOOF!!!!!!!
  • Be sure to bring bug spray and screen! Though some will be available at the info. desk, best to bring your own.
  • The Dog Walk is held rain or shine!  Keep your eye on the weather and planning appropriately.  WOOF!
  • Registration is easy- visit "Lab Rescue - Walk" and click "Register!" Volunteers need to register too.
  • Interested in volunteering at the walk, email sarah.h@lab-rescue.org.  She will connect you with a volunteer coordinator.
  • Have a question not covered here, just send an email to sarah.h@lab-rescue.org.  She will be happy to get you an answer!
