Hello! My name is Christina and I am raising money for the West Suburban Humane Society’s BARKAPALOOZA & Walkathon. I will be walking with my little dog Daisy (a “Yorkiepoo”- yorkie and miniature poodle) and we hope to raise at least $100 to help provide supplies like: • Paper Towels, • Anti-bacterial hand soap, • Dishwashing liquid, • Pet food! Canned cat, dog, kitten, and puppy food (any brand), Dry food (ONLY Purina One Smartblend, cat, dog, kitten, and puppy formula), • Kitten milk replacement, • Small baby bottles & bottle nipples, • Dog and cat toys, • Cat litter, • Postage stamps, • Garbage bags (13 & 30 gallon sizes), • Six-inch paper plates, • Bleach, • Laundry Detergent. THIS IS IMPORTANT TO ME because the West Suburban Humane Society is truly passionate about the work that they are doing! They do not just care for animals until they find their “forever home;” they provide the community with an animal resource center, humane education, and events throughout the year. Their resource center includes the opportunity to “Ask a Trainer,” to “Ask a Vet-Pet Watch,” recommend “Helpful Pet Links,” and access “Downloadable Files.” Their humane education includes shelter tours, after-school programs, junior volunteer summer camp, party pals, and classes throughout 2016. This particular event, BARKAPALOOZA, is fantastic because it is not just a walkathon! There are many vendors to shop from, breed specific rescue groups, on site micro-chipping, face painting, balloon animals, kid zones, crafts, food, and giveaways. West Suburban Humane Society does not receive any government funding; so it relies on the kindness of individual and corporate donations. Please help me and Daisy raise money to support such a great group that believes Love is a Pet Away. The event takes place Sunday, September 25, 2016- 10am to 2 pm (rain or shine) at the Lisle Community Park.
