6th Annual Sarge’s Annual Downtown Dog Walk

It is that time of year for the annual Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation Annual Downtown Dog Walk – next Saturday, August 6. This is the largest fundraiser of the year for our local all-breed rescue and they are having a dramatic impact on our shelter’s euthanasia rate. If you are in the area, come on out, walk with us, and help a great cause. And if you are not in the area, feel free to click on that Sarge’s link, click the donate button, and send a few dollars (in the description, tell them The Herd sent you).

Here is a great video we found on YouTube of last year’s walk. You will see a certain Herd within the first few seconds.

And here was our own collection of pictures from last year (and, yes, we shared this on our Facebook Page yesterday, so sorry for the repeat for our FB Friends).

    We don’t have anything like that around here. It sounds like a fun time for a good cause!

    I still can’t believe they let you lead the parade. Lucky you had the hu-dad on a leash.

    Loved watching both videos, but to me ‘n Ice, there’s only one breed of dogs that stand out. Us Siberians, of course! The Herd is very outstanding at standing out in these videos. Hope you have a great walk again this year. (Ayla)

    P.S.: Loved the theme music, too. “Who Let the Dogs Out?”

    Excellent! We’ll see if we can round up Mom’s debit card (she sells stuff on half.com to fund her doggie donations, and it goes in a special account with its own debit card, so when Mom’s made sales she donates money… she just put a few more things up for sale…) and send a few bucks for Sarge’s!

    That “Who Let the Dogs Out” video is worth a donation in itself!! How fun that the whole town participates – even the police dogs!! Hope it’s a huge success again this year!!

    I remember how exciting it was last year when you were leading the parade. Is The Herd leading the charge again this year, or just walking in support? Perhaps this is the year Rusty will make his move towards greater celebrity, since The Herd will be watched less closely if they’re not right in front. Not that I’d enjoy that or anything! *grin*

      We were so honored to lead the parade last year, but Sarge’s wisely rotates the lead position to honor different people. This year’s leaders are the Youth for Sarge’s – a terrific group of young people who conduct fundraisers for Sarge’s. But we will be there and are, once again, a proud sponsor of the walk.

    I remember how much fun everyone had last year. I hope this years event is just as much fun and helps even more animals.
