EVENT: Adoption FurFest and 5K 2016
Wrigley and I decided to participate in this years FurFest 5k to help pets who aren't as lucky as Wrigley get a chance at adoption into a good home. The participation requirement is a fundraising goal of $25 but we know we can raise more than that for this worthy cause. All monies raised go toward the expenses of the Montgomery County Humane Society and Friends of Animal Control. These folks work tirelessly to find good homes for stray and abandoned dogs and cats in Montgomery County, VA. They use the monies raised to pay for veterinary services, food, transportation and other services for the animals they serve. They are also working toward building a new shelter to serve more animals in need. Wrigley and I would appreciate donations (of any size! Every penny helps!) and I know the dogs (and cats) at the shelter would be grateful for the help. If you're local to the NRV, come check out the FurFest events: Our Second Annual MCFACC Adoption FurFest is April 23rd from 10 - 1 p.m. We are very thrilled to have a new venue on Pratt Drive at the Corporate Research Center. Our goals are to promote animal adoption, health and wellness. Along with over 30 vendors from Animal Rescues, Veterinary Offices, and Crafters, to demonstrations of Agility, K9 Units, Frisbee Dogs and much more. This years FurFest promises to be exciting! For the first time we will also host a 5K Fun Run along with the event.
