Sun shines on FAS dog walkers Saturday
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.
