Chick-Fil-A thanks

A hearty thanks to all those who came to Chick-Fil-A for our Dining to Donate night. Finally learned the results - WAG's share of proceeds was $330!! We had a lot of fun - our mascot "Wags" made his first appearance and enjoyed visiting with WAG fan, tall and small.

Our awesome fundraising crew of did a great job of getting receipts donated and making everyone aware we were there. In fact, we were tough to miss - at the door, in the parking lot, on the street, near the drive-thru - we had it all covered!

Spring WAG 'n Walk

Spring is here - Yay!! I was so tired of cold weather. There's nothing like digging and smelling cool Georgia springtime dirt. April and May are busy for WAG. The Petsmart adopt-a-thon weekend is April 30 - May 1. Some great pets will be available for adoption at both the Loganville and Conyers store, so come out and visit! Adoption hours are 11 am - 4 pm both Saturday and Sunday. We'll be tabling at the Loganville Starbucks this month to raise awareness of local pet issues. Hope you'll drop by to say hello. Our biggest news is the upcoming WAG 'n Walk on May 7 at Meridian Park in Loganville. It's gonna be an awesome event! A fun walk around the park lake, vendors with stuff to buy, helpful info on pets, music, food, fun and more! Also, our first Rescue Reunion will be held during the event. Come and meet other former Walton shelter pets and their adopters - maybe your dog will recognize a furry face! Two ways to participate. You can choose a flat fee ($10 indiv, $25 family), or help even more homeless pets by fundraising for your walk. The more money you raise, the more stuff you'll get! PAWsome goody bags await the high dollars fundraisers - those who raise more than $75 will get a special gift bag!! To sign up, visit Make up your own fundraising page, email family and friends and ask them to donate on your behalf. It's that simple. See you on the trails! B.
