Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

The Fron­tier An­i­mal So­ci­ety’s spring Dog Walk, a ma­jor fundraiser for the an­i­mal shel­ter which is as much fun for the dogs get­ting walked as it is for the walk­ers, will be held on Satur­day, May 28th. “Peo­ple who want to par­tic­i­pate can ei­ther walk their own dog or walk a dog from the shel­ter, but if they want to walk a shel­ter dog, they have to call ahead of time,” ex­plained Joyce Dekker of the Fron­tier An­i­mal So­ci­ety.

The reg­is­tra­tion for the walk will be at 9:30 am, on the day of the walk, at David Lepitre’s print­ing shop on Duf­ferin Street, where the walk will be­gin. The ‘dog pa­rade’ will go down Maple and take the bike trail all the way to Beebe Me­mo­rial Park where re­fresh­ments will be served to man and beast.

To take part in the Dog Walk, peo­ple must make a pledge of at least $10 but of­ten they are able to col­lect more from friends, neigh­bours or rel­a­tives. Tax re­ceipts can be is­sued for amounts of $10 or more. To get a pledge form, call the shel­ter at 819 876-7785.
