2023 Dog Walk & Play
Enjoy a fun day while supporting a great cause!
What is Labrapalooza - Walk & Play 2023?
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 playing 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. The grand finale of the event will be a show by the great Ultimutt.ca team. 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 $75 will receive a Labrapalooza 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?
Yes, absolutely, just download the PLEDGE FORM from our website or email us and we will send it to you. On the day of the walk, bring the form and all cash and cheque collected and you will be manually registered.
Is there a prize for the most funds raised for the walk?
Should we bring our own chairs to stay and enjoy the party?
Yes! There are a few park benches to enjoy but there may not be enough for everyone and since there is an awesome Grand Finale show by ULTIMUTTS.ca it would be a comfy way to enjoy the main showcase!
What method of payment is accepted the day of the event?
Credit card, Cash or Cheque.
Who can I bring?
The whole family as there are lots of activities and things to do at the event. Games, face paintings, corn hole fun, popcorn, cotton candy and more.
It is a big park, where do I go after after the entrance booth?
There will be signage! Section A, Shelter Green.
What if it rains?
This event is rain or shine.
