The WAG 'n Walk Pet Festival

Hard to believe it's almost time for another WAG 'n Walk Pet Festival!

Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 4, 2013 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Meridian Park in Loganville, on Highway 81 at Twin Lakes Road. Meridian is one of Walton County's public parks. We have a blast - lots of vendors, animal demonstrations, and other cool stuff. This festival is in it's fourth year and each one gets bigger and better!


The WAG 'n Walk is a fun  festival, but also a major fundraiser for our rescue program. No secret here - it costs money to rescue animals. For example, since December WAG incurred medical expenses in excess of $3,000 for just two dogs - Brenda and Jake. Jake survived his bout with parvo and pneumonia and is now in an awesome home. Puppy Brenda needed three incisions in her stomach/intestines to remove all the yucky stuff she'd ingested. Thankfully her puppy resilience pulled her through the health crisis and she's also found a family and moved on to her new life. But our Mercy fund was depleted and has yet to bounce back. We don't want to deny lifesaving treatment to any animal we rescue, so donations are always welcomed! Visit our website at for a convenient Paypal link.

WAG 'n Walk sponsor slots are still available. Your business will benefit from flyers, email blasts to hundreds of our supporters and the radio/print media advertising planned. Click here for more info.

Vendor spots are also open. A wide variety of vendors means the festival is a great place to look for unique Mother's Day or Father's Day gifts, or just for you gifts. Vendor fee is only $35 if you reserve early.

All our Happy-Ever-After Club rescue dogs will lead a walk around the lake at Meridian Park. If you'd like to help lots of homeless pets, set up a fundraising page and get your friends/family to sponsor your walk. At you'll see examples of a free fundraising page to use and be able to set up one of your own.

More news about the WAG 'n Walk will be coming, so stay tuned!
