What We Do

We work with area rescue groups and shelters to promote adoptions and bring awareness to Black Dog Syndrome. Our yearly FREE Family Event "Paws in the Park" attracts over 4000 attendees and on average, over 300 dogs find forever homes through our event.


How We Are Impacted:
Unfortunately, our annual event "Paws in the Park" scheduled for April 4, 2020 was cancelled due to COVID-19.
We are moving all sponsors, vendors, 20 rescues/shelters and entertainment (Circus Stella & Chairmen of the Board) to our NEW date of April 10, 2021

How You Can Help:
To reschedule our event, we need $4,000. to cover new obligations.

If you would like to make a small donation, do a fundraiser or be a sponsor for us to put toward our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

We have a few small Fundraisers coming up Howl-A-Ween, Giving Tuesday and Santa Photos.
