Letter: Paws All Day In Elburn

By on April 1, 2010

On Saturday, June 12, Elburn and the surrounding areas will be treated to a new event at the Elburn Lions Park.

From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Paws All Day In Elburn will be a day-long celebration of dogs and cats, their owners and their abilities, and lots of family fun.

Although this event is new to Elburn, the response has been huge, and we are looking forward to a rewarding, educational, fun and event-filled day.

Vendors will be attending with apparel for pets and their people, all kinds of supplies, healthy pet food, crafts and decor.

There will be shelter and rescue groups on the premises, showcasing animals looking for “forever“ homes, with various live demonstrations throughout the day.

In addition to shopping for your furry family member, local pet-related businesses will be on hand. Find a groomer, pet-sitter, trainer or boarding facility near you.

At this event, you can find out how to get involved with service, therapy and reader dog organizations. Does your dog have what it takes to be a therapy dog?

Admission and parking for this event are free. Contests, raffles, events and displays will be ongoing. Lunch will be available, provided by the Elburn Lions Club.

We still have room for more vendors. If you have a pet-related business, service or product and would like to join us for this event, please visit www.PawsAllDayInElburn.com for full details, or call (630) 885-2732. There is an early bird discount for vendors if your application is received by Monday, April 12.

You may also sponsor our event. Sponsors donating $50 will have their business name printed on our banner; $75 donations include publication of your business name, phone number, website and/or other information in our brochures; and a $125 sponsorship will include both the banner and the brochure. All sponsorships will be listed on our website. Sponsorship will help with the cost of the event, and a portion of all proceeds from the day will go to Dr. Jane’s HealthyPetNet foundation.

Dr. Jane’s foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion, establishment, maintenance and management of animal rescue groups committed to rescuing homeless animals all over America.

Because of the high number of animals expected to participate in this event, for liability reasons, and for the safety of all, the public is asked to leave their pets at home.
