In between the Dog Walks, Love-A-Stray will host educational information sessions with local trainers and a Veterinarian from the Avon Lake Animal Clinic. The trainers will touch on solutions to common training problems and answer questions. The Veterinarian will go over some basic pet first aid.
The event will also include a large Raffle. Last year we had over 80 raffle baskets. This year's raffle will include Gym Memberships at several area gyms, Vouchers for Kids Parties and Activities at local attractions, Teeth Whitening Kits, Memorabilia from our Cleveland Sports Teams, Gift Cards to area Salons, Restaurants and more! The raffle tickets cost $1 each for some items and $5 each for our larger items. All proceeds will be going to support the good continued work of Love-A-Stray. The winners will be drawn at 1:30pm. Individuals need not be present to win.
The event also includes Kids Activities and a Fair, with lots of things to see. A couple dozen businesses will display a wide assortment of items at the Pet and Business Fair. Contact LASDog5K@gmail.com for more information on how to participate. The "Rescue Row" area of the fair is made up of nearly a dozen of local rescue groups who will be present to provide information about themselves, their animals and give attendees a chance to look at some of the animals up for adoption.
Throughout the day, the DJ Crew will be on site providing music. The DJ Crew has been a supporter since the first year, and in 2013 managed to still provide fun tunes even in the pouring rain! Food will be available for purchase throughout the day from the Cleveland Food Truck, Krave.
Please come out and support Love-A-Stray
The Fur Fun Event is bound to be fun for the whole family!
