“They are long term supporters and over the years has contributed thousands of dollars. This money goes a long way towards insuring that we can provide exceptional care for over 1,000 homeless dogs and cats that come through our doors every single year,” said Berenbak.

“This past event was as much of a success as it was in past years and we had a great time. It was a beautiful fun day and a ‘pawesome’ day for our shelter animals.”
