Yesterday Brian, Cello, Hooch, and I volunteered for the GSP Rescue of NJ at Doggie Appreciation Day, held on the grounds of L’Oreal in Cranbury, NJ. This was a free, dog-friendly event.
Just some of the great activities going on were:
- Puppy stadium races
- 10th annual NJ State Puppy Limbo Championship
- NJ State Dog Bone Stacking Contest
- Rescue Bingo all day (great prizes to benefit our Rescue friends)
- Doggie Swimming Pools
- Over 75 Rescue Groups and Pet Vendors
This event was an opportunity to talk to people about German Shorthaired Pointers and rescue/adoption. It’s important as a rescue to “get the word out” of animal-related events happening in the area, and spread the word about the work rescues do. Brochures and other materials were available to help publicize our organization, rescued GSPs were present, and adoptable GSPs were displayed on a information board.
Hooch won over the heart of fellow rescue friend, Jen:
And Rescued GSP Eve welcomed Hooch to the event:
Overall, it was a great day spent education people about the breed and rescue!
