Wellspring's Pooch Parade!

Did you know that many victims of domestic violence choose to stay in an abusive situation for fear of retaliation against their pet? Wellspring’s Safe Pet Partnership Program can help! Our program assists victims of domestic violence by providing safe, temporary placement of family pets through a network of pet “foster homes” while they reside in our shelter.

Pooch Parade is an annual event that helps raise awareness and funds for our Safe Pet Partnership program!

What? A fun day for you and your pooch filled with ‘pawdicures’ (nail clippings), an agility course, pet vendors, free giveaways, a raffle and more followed by a walk with your pooch and the community around Congress Park!

When? Saturday, September 29
10:00 Registration and activities
11:00 Walk begins (rain or shine!)

Where? Congress Park, Saratoga Springs

How much? $5 for pooches and people are free! You can either register here now, at the walk or by calling 518-583-0280
