Dogs get their day – FAS Dog Walk com­ing up

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Vic­to­ria Vanier

Ev­ery year about this time, lo­cal dogs get their spe­cial day: the chance to go on a nice long walk along the beau­ti­ful Tomi­fo­bia Na­ture Trail, along with dozens of other furry friends, to raise money for the Fron­tier An­i­mal So­ci­ety. The So­ci­ety is home to dozens of dogs and cats and ac­tively looks for homes for their adopt­able charges.

Be­sides be­ing a won­der­ful out­ing for the FAS’ shel­ter dogs who are walked by vol­un­teers dur­ing the event, this is the Fron­tier An­i­mal So­ci­ety’s most im­por­tant fundraiser of the year. This year’s Dog Walk will take place on Satur­day, May 30th, reg­is­tra­tion at 10:30 am, at 65 Em­bury Road, in Tomi­fo­bia. The walk will begin at 11:00, rain or shine (or snow or sleet!), be­cause the dogs don’t mind!

The sug­gested do­na­tion to take part in the dog walk is $25 per fam­ily, how­ever, walk­ers can raise even more by down­load­ing a pledge sheet form the Fron­tier An­i­mal So­ci­ety’s web­site or call­ing 819 876-7747, and get­ting friends and fam­ily mem­bers to help spon­sor the walk. Re­fresh­ments will be served to walk­ers and their dogs fol­low­ing the hike. All dogs are wel­come!
