The third annual fundraising dog walk – THE NATIONAL DOG SHOW CHARITY WALK - is set for Sunday, October 16 from 9am - noon, at Wilson Farm Park, 500 Lee Road in Wayne, PA. The event kicks off National Dog Show Month in Philadelphia.
All dogs are welcome with their owners, friends and admirers as the Kennel Club of Philadelphia and The National Dog Show combine forces to raise money for important Delaware Valley charities - The Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House, Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), PACT For Animals, Morris Animal Refuge, and New Leash on Life USA.
An entire morning full of fun activities for adults, kids and canines features the National Dog Show Therapy Dog Ambassador Team along with agility dogs, national and Delaware Valley celebrities and pet personalities. The event also features contests for Top Dog Trick, Costume and Beauty, plus music, prizes, fun, food, raffles and free stuff.
We are saluting all of the dogs that enrich our lives by doing exactly what they most desire - spending time outside with us and with kids and with anyone who has love in their heart.
Join our supporters and sponsors, including Nestle Purina, University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, NBC 10, 95.7 BEN FM, 102.9MGK, Geis Realty, Royal Bank of America and more.
Please help us get the word out by sending this link to your family, friends, places of business and to others who might want to participate as registrants, sponsors, donors or raffle prize providers.
