Location: Eldorado Park

The excitement is building already for our fun annual event, Paws At The Park. Please mark your calendars right now for Sunday, March 19, 2023 from 11 AM to 3 PM and don’t let anything else interfere with coming to help us celebrate 14 years in business with 1,226 dogs rescued! The event will be held at the West Ramada of Eldorado Park in Scottsdale. There is a map on the registration form.

The February newsletters went out in the mail on Thursday. A PATP registration form is included; you can also find one on our Facebook page and on our website. Please fill it out and send it in ASAP. Since we purchase food for this event, we must have registrations in and paid for by March 15. You can pay by sending a Zelle transaction labeled PICNIC or including a check or credit card information with the registration form. If you do a Zelle payment, you can scan the registration form and email it to Deb Orwig at dorwigaz@cox.net  Anyone is welcome to attend as long as they register and pay: $16 per person, $8 for children under 10.

This is a family event. Dog-friendly dogs are welcome but must be kept on leash in the park. We hope that most of you who adopted a dog from AGR in 2022 and in the first two months of 2023 are able to attend – we will have an adoption recognition ceremony and do a Parade of Rescue around the park.  Those of you who have lost a dog in the last year may want to acknowledge that dog in our Rainbow Bridge ceremony – Deb will need a paragraph about the dog and a photo you like ASAP.

Questions? Contact Deb at dorwigaz@cox.net or text or call 623-693-0589.

Hope to see you there!
