"Dog Day in the Park" was Saturday, October 13th at the McCook Humane Society and was a HUGE SUCCESS!!!
We had an awesome turnout for our 6th Annual "Dog Day in the Park"! We want to thank each and every one of you who came out and supported the event by bringing your furchild and getting his or her nail's trimmed (we had 46 dogs and a cat come in to get their nails trimmed - that's 188 paws!), getting them microchipped (we had 17 dogs microchipped), participating in the games & activities, the raffles or just coming out and having fun with us! Congratulations to the raffle winners: Judy, Marc, Brandi, Matt, Kaila, Melina, Andrea, Carol and Lorie! Thank you to our sponsors: Macfee's Paw Spa & Inn, WalMart, McCook's Ace Hardware, Farrell's Hallmark and Pharmacy, Orscheln's Farm & Home, Common Scents, Tractor Supply, Nick's Distrubution, Citti' Deli, Loop Brewing Company, Kirk/Sehnert's, McCook Daily Gazette, Hometown Radio and High Plains Radio, and of course our friends The Cat Pack! Thank you to the Board members, staff and volunteers of the shelter who helped make this event a huge success and a special shout out to Loretta, Faith & Matt Macfee, and Maddie Shepherd for all of your help! Because of everyone's support and hard work, we were able to raise $880! Wow!! That is impressive!
The agility course was provided by Macfee's Paw Spa & Inn, and there were quite a few furkids having fun and testing their skills. The Cat Pack was on hand with the brand new calendars, the "Cats & Dogs of McCook" Playing Cards, and all kinds of neat things on hand to help raise money for us! This group just doesn't stop!
Macfee's Paw Spa & Inn was there with the Pet Tag ID machine engraving identification tags! We had awesome raffle items from our wonderful friends at Walmart, McCook's Ace Hardware, Farrell's Hallmark & Pharmacy, Orsheln's Farm & Homme, Common Scents (which was donated back to the shelter WOOHOO), Tractor Supply Company, Citti' Deli, Loop Brewing Company, Kirkk Dixon donated a Sehnert's Bakery gift card, and an anonomous donation of pet related items. Walmart and Nick's Distribution donated goodies and snacks to set up a snack/dessert table! It was an AWESOME day at the shelter. We even had two dogs and two kittens adopted during all this... how awesome is that?
A special thank you goes out to our sponsors! A special thank you goes out to the wonderful folks that helped pull this off. A special thanks to everyone who continue to support us, making it possible for us to do what we do!
