Charity Dog Walk

Paws in the Park--one of our major fundraisers-- is scheduled for September 13, 2020. Everyone has been affected by Covid -19 including the Buddy Foundation. We are just starting to cautiously open the shelter but contributions have been down and we are counting on having this fundraiser as planned. We normally start taking registrations in July for the dog walk but this year we are doing something different. We are anticipating a decline in the number of businesses who sponsor the event as the economy has taken a hit. As a result we are hoping the wonderful people who support the shelter will help offset the loss by sending in their registration fee early . We have bills for vet care and medications that have not "sheltered in place" and your early registration would help now. You do not have to walk in the event to register. Send your check for $30 to: The Buddy Foundation 65 W. Seegers Road Arlington Heights , IL 60005 Attention : Paws in the Park. Include your name , phone number and T-shirt size. When the registration forms come out in July, fill one out and bring it to the event. You will be on the pre-paid list and you will receive your t- shirt and goody bag. If you do not plan to attend ,your $30 tax deductible contribution would really help and you will still get an event t-shirt. I know finances are strained but our dogs and cats would really appreciate your contribution!!🐕🐈

This is the 9th annual dog walk fundraiser for the Buddy Foundation- a no-kill non profit animal shelter for dogs and cats. All proceeds raised go to the care of the animals at the shelter. Registration fee of $30 ( before August 25) entitles you to walk one dog in the event and you will receive an event T-shirt and a treat bag. We will have a raffle of various prizes at the event.
