I stopped out at CHA Animal Shelter’s Picnic with the Pups Saturday for a bit to take some photos of the event for the shelter. Wow, so much going on for their summer gathering! There were vendors, live music, food and drink, a silent auction and the chance to meet the animals up for adoption! The best part of all, CHA posted on Facebook that they had a record 33 dogs and cats adopted over the weekend! Glad that so many animals had the opportunity to find their new fur-ever homes!
I had the chance to visit with some of the vendors and also other animal rescue groups that had booths at the event. I spent some time talking to Kimberly of Potty Pocket, who offers adorable bags that have one pocket that you can throw your keys, phone, etc. in when you’re off to walk your dog. And the second pocket is for when you are ready to clean-up after your dog, with a slit at the bottom of the Potty Pocket, you can pull out a potty bag. And the Pockets are made locally in Columbus! I also talked with Good Nature Organic Lawn Care, I’m excited that they’ll be stopping out to my home this week for an estimate on natural and chemical-free lawn treatments. Baxter is not pleased when we currently have our lawn treated and he can’t roam free in the back yard for a few days.
I love Beagles and wouldn’t you know that the Beagles rrrrrrr Us rescue group was also at the event. I got to meet just a few of the Beagles that are available for adoption. They get their Beagles from pounds where they are about to be euthanized. What a bunch of sweeties these pups are! Beagles rrrrrrr Us is located in London, OH and they attend the various Franklin County dog events, so be sure to check them out if you’re a Beagle lover like I am!!
Here’s some of the photos from CHA’s wonderful event. Stop by the CHA website CHAAnimalshelter.org to find out about all the the dogs and cats available for adoption and to find out more about their upcoming events!
