Sometimes rescue and community groups plan a big event and get the info in too late for LCD to feature it in the appropriate print issue. I've recently been notified about two events very early in October, that sound like a lot of fun. Since the October/Nov issue will only be out a couple of days before these events happen, I wanted to go ahead and tell you guys about them now. Yes, the events are more than a month away, but I wanted to give you plenty of time to plan to attend!
1st Annual Fido's Frolic on Folly
Saturday October 3rd

Fido’s Frolic is a scenic stroll on a Saturday afternoon with your favorite canine(s) and a few hundred other like-minded animal lovers. Registration and activities start at 2:00 PM. The walk begins at 3:00 PM and covers a 2- mile round trip route along Folly Beach, beginning at the pier. Water stations for dogs and people will be located along the route.

Ask everyone you know to sponsor you in the walk by pledging a specific dollar amount as a donation to support the homeless animals at Pet Helpers. Collect all of your pledge payments in advance and bring your Pledge Sheet and Payment checks with you to the walk.  If you are unable to join us on October 3rd, you still make a donation to the animals using

the registration form.
