I posted last week about how thrilled I was with the way the city of North Canton is approaching dog adoption. They’re using a bunch of related community events to call attention to the dogs who need to be adopted from area shelters and rescue organizations. Presented by Pawsitive Ohio, DogGone North Canton runs from August 3rd to August 9th.
Today’s event, the Downtown Dog Walk, was sponsored by the North Canton YMCA, and drew a couple dozen hearty walkers and their pooches, despite the grey skies and a few sprinkles. The event began at Bitzer Park right in the middle of downtown and proceeded down Main Street to Ro’s Custard Creations, where each dog could add back on the calories s/he just burned off with a puppy cone.
Here are a few of the dogs as they finished their walk and enjoyed their treats:
Coming up tomorrow: Tuesday, August 5 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Adult Program: Paws & Prayers will explain how to get involved in fostering a rescue dog, including supplies, contacts and expectations. You might be surprised how easy it is! Register beginning July 21 at ncantonlibrary.org.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
