‘Paws for a Cause’ unleashes education, fun on April 22
exeter – Dogs are a wonderful animal. They protect the home, no matter how big or small, and they bring a sense of calm with them wherever they go. That is why Exeter Union High School’s Compassion for Shelter Animals Club (CSA) wants the community to join them in a fun-filled day of exercise and education in the first annual “Paws for a Cause” Pet Walk and Festival.
Community member can turnout on Saturday, April 22 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event begins at Exeter High School and finishes at Exeter’s own Bark Park. The festival is an opportunity to have fun, become educated about pet wellness and help combat pet overpopulation in Tulare County. Valley Oak SPCA will host a low-cost vaccination and microchip clinic as well as an adoption event. The City of Exeter will host pet licensing, too.
The purpose of this fundraising event is to have a fun educational day with your favorite four-legged family member and to bring attention to the number of stray dogs and cats in our shelters that need adoption, with emphasis on spay and neuter.
Registration for the Dog Walk starts at 9 a.m. and is only $10 to register yourself and your dog. The dog walk begins at 10 a.m. at Exeter High School and continues to City Park, winds through downtown and ends at our Exeter Bark Park. There, the fun continues with vendor booths, pet wellness clinics, rescue organizations, dog trainers, and a “kids-educating-kids” table. In addition, Valley Oak will be on site with wonderful dogs waiting to meet their forever loving family. Please note that dogs participating in this event must be leashed and must be dog- and people-friendly.
Compassion for Shelter Animals (CSA) is a high school club that helps bring awareness to the plight of the thousands of stray dogs and cats found at local animal control facilities and that are often euthanized due to pet-overpopulation. The mission of CSA is to find loving homes for shelter dogs and cats and to educate the public about the importance of spaying and neutering. Due to the dedicated efforts of this student based-club, CSA club has saved over 1000 lives through pet adoption events and rescue.
