Somerset, NJ:  When asked why she decided to get involved with DogFest New Jersey, Kathy Burr of Somerset said, “It just made sense to see what I could do.” A long-time volunteer for the organization, Kathy is well-aware of Canine Companions’ fundraising needs, and was one of the first to sign up and create a fundraising team.

With a goal of $1,000, Kathy is reaching out to friends and family to ask them to support the organization she volunteers for. 

You can help make DogFest Walk ‘n Roll New Jersey a success by participating in this event on Oct. 7th at Roosevelt Park in Edison. Create a fundraising page and share the story of you and your family pet.  There’s even a spot for a picture!  Then share your page with your family and friends…
