A great event to get your family and German Shepherd out of the house this spring! Be sure that you keep your GSD on leash and under control at all times while in public. You are not only representing yourself but the entire breed!
Event: PAWS-4-A-Cause Adopt-a-thon & Family Fun Day 2012
Date: May 12, 2012
Time: 9:30 am to 3:00 pm
Location: Cleveland Metroparks Polo Field in Moreland Hills
Admission Cost: FREE
Benefiting: PAWS Ohio (Public Animal Welfare Society). PAWS is a non-profit rescue organization that has been around since 1976. In 2011 alone, they found new homes for 400 pets.
If you wish to participate you can register for the 1 or 2 mile walk around the park with your dog. If you pre-register for the dog walk it is just $25 and you will receive a doggie bag and a t-shirt. You may also register at the event for $30 and will receive a t-shirt while supplies last.
In addition to the dog walk, there will also be a raffle where you will have the opportunity to win some big ticket items. You will also be able to see different canine demonstrations, participate in contests with your dog, shop at the vendor booths, purchase food and much more.
Several dog rescues will have pets there available for adoption. If you have thought about adopting or fostering a GSD, this would be a great opportunity to get out there and make some contacts.
Hosting this event will be local celebrities Stefani Schaefer and Dick Goddard with Fox 8, as well as Bobby Thomas from 107.3 The Wave.

This is sure to be a fun family event where you can bring your German Shepherd Dog along. Please be sure that your GSD is under control at all times and well behaved. Remember, not all dog owners are responsible, so it is your job to keep your dog safe and sound. When you bring your GSD to a public event like this, you are acting as a representative of the breed.
