Thank Dog I Am Out! #DontShopAdopt Walk Happens May 13th


Thank Dog I Am Out is a non-profit committed to helping pups find their furever homes. They’re putting on their first ever #DontShopAdopt Walk on Saturday, May 13th at Spanish Banks. The charity walk’s aim is to raise awareness for dog rescue, especially for those pups in high-kill shelters.

If you’re looking to adopt a pup, you can get some information first-hand at the event. The non-profit has a couple of orphaned pups available, opportunity to volunteer or become a foster parent! 

The walk is happening in full force, rain or shine, all two-and-four legged creatures are welcome. Besides the absolute hilarity of attending a massive dog paw-ty, there will be a costume contest, live music and a BBQ.
