Wade Bayou Memorial Park
It’s that Time of Year Again!
As Wishbone celebrates 10 years working hard for the Allegan County Animal Shelter, we also celebrate our 6th Annual Dog Walk. This year’s dog walk fundraiser is called “Wag, Walk & Wine From Bayou to Beach” This fun dog/owner event is being held in downtown Douglas, on September 14 at Wade Bayou Park, Center Street, Douglas, MI. This beautiful park is right on the Kalamazoo River. After the 1 mile or less walk, enjoy a glass of wine, beer, or other beverage from one of the merchants in Downtown Douglas. The cost of that beverage is a $5 upgrade on your purchased ticket for the dog walk.
The 6th Annual Dog Walk goes from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Dog Walk starts at Wade Bayou Park and goes straight down Center Street in Downtown Douglas to Lake MI. Stop along the way in Douglas and enjoy the variety of merchants. At Wade’s Bayou Park, there will be vendor tents with pet items, bakery goods, and raffle table. There will be various contests at 1pm in the park for dog and owner. Best dressed, best trick, longest ears/tails, shortest legs and musical squares. Prizes for dog and owner alike!
Help us raise awareness and funds for the lost, homeless and neglected pets of Allegan County. This is going to be a fun event for the entire family, 2 or 4 legged alike! For $25, the Dog Walk will include a goody bag with t-shirt and giveaways, for your 1-mile walk, or shorter walk for senior and little dogs. For those who want to enjoy the beverage at the end of their walk, is just $5.
