On Sunday June 6th the 3rd Annual Whisker Walk is being held at the 50 acre Lancaster Fairground, Lancaster, MA. It is open to the public from 11am – 3pm and the Walk starts at noon.
The Whisker Walk is the Nation’s only multi-organizational dog walk and benefit. The Walk draws pet lovers and owners from near and far and is an incredible event to witness with thousands of pet lovers strolling with their pooches!
What’s a Whisker Walk you ask? Well, it’s a lot of things … but mostly it’s a free, fun day for families and their dogs plus a dog walk-a-thon fundraiser to benefit New England animal shelters and rescue groups. With almost 100 pet related groups, companies, vendors, sponsors and manufacturers and animal rescue groups in attendance there is so much to do, see and buy!
There are many new exciting events for the 2010 Whisker Walk!
• Geo-caching with or without your dog. If your not familiar with this new sport Dog Caching is a dog friendly “scavenger hunt” you play with your GPS and in this case, your dog. The purpose of the game is to locate containers hidden at our Whisker Walk Fairground.
• 2nd Annual Top Dog Photo Contest sponsored by WXLO 104.5 fm (Top 5 photos win prizes worth hundreds of dollars)
