...Responsible Pet Care Mission Statement

Fun Dog Day

Fun Dog Day raises awareness of the 700+ homeless dogs and cats Responsible Pet Care serves yearly, and in particular celebrates dogs.

Events include a 1k poker dog walk, a sponsored dog walk, Wayne's Water World for dogs (a huge hit), professional pet photos, a dog show with categories that allow each and every dog participating to shine, games with dogs; and amazing demonstrations by working dogs and their handlers. Also available throughout the day: a small food court, vendors/crafters with wonderful items to sell, a children's craft area, and many educational booths. Folks come to spend a laid back, pleasant day with dogs and dog lovers.

Proceeds from Fun Dog Day go toward specific needs at the shelter.

We invite you to participate. Whether you choose to walk with your dog, participate in some of the events, sponsor an event, set-up a vendor's/crafter's table, or just enjoy the day with your family, you will be supporting this event that is so financially important to Responsible Pet Care.
