Circle of Friends Humane Society "Six in Six" Fundraiser

Posted: Updated:

The Circle of Friends Humane Society kicks off the second annual online fundraiser, Six in Six which hopes to raise $6,000 in six days for the ongoing medical care of pets at the Circle of Friends Humane Society.

Starting Monday, September 30 running through Saturday, October 5 donors are asked to donate online at gfpets.com. Several animals at the shelter received extensive medical care before being placed for adoption. The pets require medical care throughout the year averaging $1,500-$2,000 monthly.

In conjunction with this week's events the Circle of Life Humane Society presents its Fifth Annual All 4 Fun Dog Festival on Sunday, October 6, 2013 from 11am to 2 p.m. Results of the Six in Six fundraiser will be announced at All 4 Fun on October 6.

All events are free, open to the public and will be held at the Circle of Friends public dog park at 4375 N Washington. Donations are appreciated and will be accepted to assist the Circle of Friends Humane Society in their mission to shelter lost, unwanted pets. Dogs must be leashed except when participating in games.

The doggy games at All 4 Fun will test dogs' abilities in several very important skills: musical sit/stay, doggy dash, obedience baseball, doggy bowling, peanut butter lick, obstacle course and ball toss (games subject to change).

For dogs whose abilities lie in areas other than physical activity, there are the contests for best costume, best trick, cutest, most disobedient, sing-off, best tail wagger and Who's Your Daddy?

The Second Chance Alumni Reunion will recognize dogs adopted from the Circle of Friends Humane Society and the very special caregivers who gave them that second chance. And last but certainly not least, the Manvel Fire Department will be grilling food for the event with the proceeds going to the Manvel Fire Department.

For information please call 701-775-3732 or visit our website at www.gfpets.com
