About Our Shelter:Don't miss the 2013 Whisker Walk - 6th Annual on Sunday June 9th 2013 www.whiskerwalk.org for more information!
What's a Whisker Walk you Ask?
Well its a lot of things ... but mostly its a FREE, fun day for families and their dogs PLUS a dog walk-a-thon fundraiser to benefit animal shelters and rescue groups throughout New England.
Held at the Lancaster Fairground (Home of the Bolton Fair) there are 50+ acres for Pet owners and animal lovers to walk, visit vendors, see, do and buy PLUS they can lend a paw for the animals shelters and pet rescues they love and support!
Come see almost 100 booths filled with exhibits, demonstrations, educational programs, special attractions, product giveaways, entertainment, auctions/raffles, food, fun and things for adults and kids to see, do and buy – both human and pet related!
Check back often to see participants, events and attractions!
Top off your exciting day and join us for the Walk - a leisurely (almost) ONE mile stroll on shaded, flat, grassy trails with your well behaved dog (sorry other pets must stay home)
