Our FIRST Annual Rescue Reunion was held on Sunday, September 11, 2011 at Kingston Park in Chatham, Ontario. Our adopters, foster families, volunteers and adopted dogs and fosters were invited to get together to reunite under one roof to catch up! It was such a wonderful time to see several of our precious rescues who had been adopted once again – for some it was a few weeks and others several months. There was a lot of hugging and poochie kisses going on! It was a time filled with new memories!
The day started off cloudy with a little rain but the skies opened up to beautiful blue skies, white clouds and bright shining sun. The BBQ was fired up with delicious Ball Parks and many who attended brought food and goodies for our potluck table – salads, fruit and veggie trays, desserts. No one left hungry! The poochies also had their own treats to snack on!
Words cannot express the feeling of gratitude we all feel to have met so many wonderful and loving adopters since we first started our rescue. To see the amazing progress and happy faces of the adopted dogs who have found their forever families is such a rewarding feeling that warms the heart! Thank you for giving our rescues a second chance to have a new life filled with love!
We are blessed to have a team of volunteers who give of their time to help with our many events and the love they generously share with our rescues when we need temporary homes while they wait for their new families. Without the dedication and commitment of our volunteers, we couldn’t do what we do. Thank you all for loving our rescues!
Next year we plan to do it again! Enjoy a few pictures taken during our reunion, it was a wonderful day to remember….
