Wellspring Virtual Pooch Parade

October 16 - October 18

Did you know that many times victims of domestic violence and sexual assault will not leave an abusive relationship out of fear for what might happen to their pet?
Wellspring’s Safe Pet Partnership Program can help! Our Safe Pet Program assists victims by providing safe, temporary placement of family pets through a network of volunteer foster families. These volunteer families provide pets with a loving home while our clients move to safety. Once that is achieved, our clients and their pets are reunited!
Pooch Parade is an annual event that helps raise awareness and funds for our Safe Pet Partnership program.
And this year instead of parading around Congress Park we are inviting you to parade around the safety of your own home, neighborhood, or nearby park!
A HUGE thank you to our Presenting Sponsor Benson’s Pet Center and to our Honorary Sponsor and friends at Adirondack Veterinary Clinic!
How this year’s virtual Pooch Parade will work:

All donations made during registration directly benefit Wellspring’s programs and services (you can also register by mailing a check made out to Wellspring.) Make sure to include your mailing address so we can send you a Wellspring sign for your Pooch Parade photo ops!
2. In preparation for the walk, once your sign arrives, take a photo with your pup and Wellspring sign and post it in the discussion section of the Pooch Parade Facebook event so we can all share in your excitement! (No Facebook? No problem! Email your photo to Development@WellspringCares.org and we will share on your behalf!)
3. Plan a time to walk with your pup sometime on October 16, 17, or 18!
