Get your pack together for a fun-filled, howling good time! This year’s Annual Reunion will be held at Golden Gateway in the Thomas and Marian Ludwig Adoption & Activity Center at Golden Gateway.
The event will be held on Saturday, October 21, 2017 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. (rain or shine) and will be a day of fun, games, food, and friends! “Howlin’ at the Kennel” will begin with a costume parade! Suggested donation is $10.00/family and sponsorship opportunities are available. Click here to be an event sponsor.
This event is open to all well-mannered DVGRR canines and their siblings as well as their human family members. (Dogs must be on lead, no flexis.) Food (hot dogs, burgers, barbeque) will be available for purchase (or pack a picnic). There will be dog games, silent auction, raffle baskets, and outside retail vendors who will be donating a portion of their proceeds to DVGRR. Currently, vendors include LuLaRoe, Magnolia, and Vine, so plan to start your holiday shopping early. (If you are interested in participating as a vendor, please contact Lisa to discuss.)
Pap’s Place will be open to stock up on your fall DVGRR logo wear and toys for all your four-legged goblins.
The event highlight will be the Halloween Parade at 11:00 a.m., and dogs and their owners will parade around our campus and will be judged on costumes. There will be prizes for best dog, best dog/human combo, best group, scariest, funniest, and most original. Dress your dog (and yourself) to win a prize!
