What is Labrapalooza - Walk & Play 2016?
It is an event where any four legged furry canine (not just labs) can attend. The PLAY time will KICK OFF with a 2 km WALK (reduced for “senior” dogs) around the park. Then a walk into the park to enjoy some frolic time in the leash-free park, play doggie games, owners can enter draws for some great prizes. Canines can get a quick lesson from a professional dog trainer, and owners can watch some agility training and much, much more. It will be a great day of fun while raising awareness and much needed funds for the Lab Rescue organization.
Why are you having a Palooza?
Lab Rescue has made a tremendous impact on the lives of the Labs that have come into our care. Many of these Labs come to us without having had proper medical attention and require Lab Rescue to provide necessary vet care. Sometimes a simple set of vaccinations or more often, serious medical care that range in cost and sophistication. Providing this level of care for surrendered Labs has been quite a financial strain on the organization and so, we need your support. We can all make a difference in the lives of many Labs in different ways. Some people volunteer, some people donate, and some people show support by attending an event like Labrapolooza. It is ALL helpful and appreciated!
Do I need to pre-register for the event?
Yes! (If you choose to be part of the walk and collect pledges). Registering is EASY! Visit our web site and click on the WALK & PLAY icon and follow directions from there. You can personalize your pledge page with lots of your own dog photos, so go ahead and have some fun with it! All walkers with a base pledge $50 will receive a t-shirt for registering for the walk. The more you raise the more gifts you receive.
If you choose to just join us for the PLAY part only, then there is no need to register for the event. There will be a registration booth as you enter the park and we will ask you to stop and sign up there.
If I don't sign up ON-LINE for the walk is there still a way to attend the walk and take in donations by cheque or cash?
