Festival of Dogs supports animal rescues

The dog days of summer came to the Lions Park soccer field on Sunday, July 14, as dogs and dog lovers alike braved the scorching weather to take part in the Festival of Dogs in support of Angels of Hope Animal Rescue Inc. and Bright Eyes Dog Rescue. 

         The event included nail trims, mini obedience classes with trainers Kass Doig and Katie Mryglod, pet photos by Alaina’s View Photography, face painting by Hilary Mack, a doggy fashion show, agility equipment to try out, a raffle and for the humans in attendance. A Second Family Dog Lodge, owned and operated by Deb and Blair Andrew of Carlyle, served a BBQ lunch with proceeds going to Angels of Hope Animal Rescue Inc.

         Despite the multiple water stations and wading pools, the heat was so dangerous to the animals and humans alike that the organizers shortened the timetable up so everyone could head home out of the heat.
