Annual Paws in the Park fundraiser set for September

The 3rd Annual Salisbury Paws in the Park dog walk fundraiser, an event of Rowan Surge and the LandTrust for Central North Carolina, has been set for Saturday, Sept. 26, 2009. The event will be held at Knox Middle School located at 1625 West Park Road in Salisbury. Registration and check-in will begin at 9:30 a.m. and the 1.5 mile walk will start at 10:30 a.m. Immediately following the walk, Doggie Olympics, put on by Lazy 5 Ranch Veterinary Services, will begin. The events will consist of best dressed, most talented, marshmallow toss, musical sit, fastest dog and timed eating contests. A medal ceremony for these events will be held at 1:15 p.m.
The entry fee for the event is $12 per person, regardless of the number of dogs in attendance. This will cover the cost of registration and event t-shirt. Individuals under the age of 12 walk for free and may purchase event t-shirts while supplies last. Doggie Olympics fee is $5 per participating dog.
Funds raised during the event will help support public outreach and conservation education initiatives of the LandTrust for Central North Carolina, Faithful Friends Animal Shelter, an animal rescue group, created to establish a no-kill animal sanctuary in Rowan County and No Pet Left Behind Spay/Neuter Clinic. All are non-profit organizations established to benefit Rowan County.
A Port-A-Pit dinner has been added this year to the line-up leading up to the actual event and will be held Wednesday, September 23, 2009 at the J.F. Hurley Family YMCA in Salisbury.

Tickets can be purchased through Paws in the Park committee members and at all Friday Night Outs in Downtown Salisbury beginning July 17.
