Can Do Canines invites the public and their well-behaved pet dogs to take part in the Can Do Woofaroo on Saturday, September 18, 2021. The event will take place at the Can Do Canines campus from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., with a one-mile walk beginning at 11 a.m. The Can Do Woofaroo celebrates the amazing partnership between assistance dogs and the people who need them.
Individuals can register at www.candowoofaroo.org on their own or as part of a team, and everyone is encouraged to collect pledges and donations toward this fundraiser. The proceeds make it possible for Can Do Canines to match assistance dogs with people with disabilities, free of charge. Event coordinator Melissa Herman says, “We are so appreciative of the participants who will raise funds for this life-changing mission. Our work in forming essential partnerships between these special dogs and deserving individuals is dependent on the generosity of our donors.”
KARE 11 Reporter/Anchor Rena Sarigianopoulos will serve as Master of Ceremonies for this outdoor event, which will include a one-mile fundraising walk, live music, a dog costume contest, an assistance dog demonstration, dog-centric vendors, tours of the Can Do Canines campus and more. Fundraising prizes will be awarded to those who raise certain dollar amounts, as well as to the top individual fundraiser and top fundraising team.
