Mark your calendars for the 6th Annual Whisker Walk on Sunday June 9th 2013!
What's a Whisker Walk you Ask?
Well it’s a lot of things ... but mostly it’s a FREE, fun day for families and their dogs PLUS a dog walk-a-thon fundraiser to benefit New England animal shelters and rescue groups. Each year Whisker Walk draws THOUSANDS of people and their dog/s.
With almost 100 pet related groups, companies, vendors, sponsors, manufacturers and animal rescue groups in attendance each year this is an “event not to be missed” for pet lovers and their dogs with a Blessing of the Animals kicking off the noon multi-organizational DOG WALK!
Whisker Walk has something for every one with two legs or four! Spectacular exhibits, demonstrations, hands-on animal petting opportunities, educational programs, special attractions, kid’s area, rides, adoptable pets, product giveaways, raffles, auctions, Agility Course, Frisbee Dog Show, Canine Good Citizens testing, Ask the Vet, FREE rabies vaccines, low cost micro-chipping, Blessing of the Animals, lots of food, fun and things for adults and kids to see, do and buy!
Held at the Lancaster Fairground (Home of the Bolton Fair) there are 50+ acres for Pet owners and animal lovers to walk, visit vendors, see, do and buy PLUS they can lend a paw for the animals shelters and pet rescues they love and support!
Top off your exciting day and join us for the Walk - a leisurely (almost) ONE mile stroll on shaded, flat, grassy trails with your well behaved dog (sorry other pets must stay home)
