My husband Jack, Hope ( Our Golden Retriever, adopted from LCGRR ) and I participated in The Grand Strand Humane Society Walk last weekend. We set up our beautiful exhibit and had many goldens and their families that had been adopted in the MB area come out to help. Broadway at the Beach was an awesome location for this kind of event. Live entertainment by 10 year old Gabbie Rae was especially nice.
Everyone was so festive! I only saw 2 dogs that were not in costume. Hope wore hers but after seeing the competition she changed her mind about entering the costume contest. Many entered the best Halloween costume contest. Even children were in costumes showing their pets. Free nail trimming was offered and they stayed very busy. Huge raffle with at least 25 baskets, GC, services and even a large dog house. Lots of excited people when their tickets were drawn. Very very well-organized. There were 4 other animal rescues / shelters represented. Sprint, Melissa Marks Pet Photography, Liberty Restaurant and Invisible Fences also had exhibits. Hopefully we will be invited back next year. We will certainly go! – Glenda Barnett
