Sun shines on FAS dog walk­ers Satur­day

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier

Satur­day’s beau­ti­ful weather brought out the big­gest turn-out ever for the Fron­tier An­i­mal So­ci­ety’s (FAS) an­nual dog walk along the Tomi­fo­bia Na­ture Trail. Around one hun­dred and twenty-five peo­ple and about fifty four-legged friends at­tended the shel­ter’s most im­por­tant fundraiser which also gives the shel­ter dogs a chance to get out

and meet some new friends, some­times even get adopted. The walk is get­ting so popular now that nearby res­i­dents hold garage sales on the same week­end, mak­ing the trip to that area of Og­den on and near En­bury Road dou­bly fun.

Event or­ga­niz­ers would like to thank David Labonté, of Marché Tra­di­tions Stanstead, for sup­ply­ing the wa­ter and juices, the Quinn pet sup­ply store, in Ma­gog, for the dog bis­cuits and sam­ples of treats, and all the dog walk­ers who came out. It seems like this ded­i­cated and grow­ing crowd ei­ther has snow and sleet or ex­treme heat to deal with at this an­nual event, re­gard­less of the fact that the event is held around the same time ev­ery year! Re­fresh­ments were served af­ter the hike. The to­tal tally of the event will be an­nounced as soon as it is avail­able.

Peo­ple and their pets were all en­joy­ing the warm tem­per­a­tures and sun­shine as they waited for the be­gin­ning of the Fron­tier An­i­mal So­ci­ety dog walk to begin, last Satur­day morn­ing.
