Did You Say Walk?

We are excited to be back at McKean Community Park on September 18, to walk as a community supporting our animal rescue.  McKean Community Park (8800 Main Street), offers 2 lovely wooded trails, a ½ mile or a 1-mile trail.  Enjoy being outdoors, with or without your pup, while helping the animals at Because You Care!   This year’s event will feature dog activities as well as activities for children, music (HAPPI 92.7), food trucks  (The Waffle Miracle and Food For Thought) and more. Enjoy being outdoors, walking the paths, and meeting and greeting other dog friends and their humans all while helping the animals at Because You Care! All leashed, well-behaved dogs are encouraged and welcomed!

Our famous Franklin Raffle Baskets: 

Proceeds support severely injured or ill animals who have been abandoned and who are in need of in-depth veterinary care in order to survive. The fund has helped dozens of animals since its inception. The Franklin Fund has helped reverse these once-tragic cases, and the animals who have benefitted from the fund are now in loving homes, living healthy, happy lives.
