"Paws & Hearts"

As we update our quarterly newsletter we will also update our Event Page. Whether you are a volunteer or just an animal lover you are always invited to our events. Community support helps to make our program grow.

Our Summer 2014 "Take Your Dogs to the Movies" will be held in Palm Springs at Windsor Court Assisted Living, 201 S. Sunrise Way. Escape the desert heat with your dog and join us on Wednesday July 23rd at 1pm for a fun couple of hours in the theatre at Windsor. Our feature will be "Hotel for Dogs."

Ticket price--$15.00 per adult, dogs free. One dog per adult, and absolutely no retractable leashes allowed. Straight, short leashes only.

Free popcorn, free sodas, and free dog treats!

Parking--The best place to park is on Baristo Road. To make this easy on the dogs paws..........if you have a large dog, you can drop him or her off at Windsor Court and the doggy valet will hold your dog inside (by the water bowl) until you've parked the car. And upon conclusion of the movie, your dog will be held again until you bring the car to the door. Please carry your small dog once you've parked.

The theater only holds 30 patrons, and once we sell out, we will schedule another showing in August. We are asking for all tickets be purchased ahead of time. You can send a check into our office, stop by the office, or use Paypal through out site.

Looking forward to seeing you and your dog at the movies in July!

The Westin Mission Hills Resort
in Rancho Mirage
Registration at 9:00 am,
Walk kicks off at 10:00 am!

We are about to kick off year number 14!  Who could believe that this would be the 14th Annual Dog Walk and that the little organization that "Lucky" and I founded 13 years ago would boast almost 45 volunteer teams and have such an incredible presence in the Coachella Valley?  Our Canine Ambassadors visit facilities from The Comprehensive Cancer Center at Desert Regional Medical Center in north Palm Springs, all the way down valley to Indio Nursing and Rehabilitation. 

It seems like only yesterday that "Lucky" and I made our first visit with Uncle Phillip helping out.  Much has changed in 13 years, and we've developed an enviable reputation in town as a well run, reliable non-profit.  We probably have the best volunteer pool of any agency in town, and while donations are down everywhere, our core donors are still supporting us.

So please bring along those Zip-lock bags of loose change you have been saving all year and come out to our 14th Annual Dog Walk and lend your support

Raffle Prizes !!!

For those of you who have attended our dog walks in
the past you know that we have the very best raffle of all! 
We sell raffle tickets for our over-the-top raffle baskets and
gift certificates. Local merchants have graciously donated products and services and almost everyone who purchases
a raffle ticket wins something.

"We had a great turn out at our 13th Annual Dog Walk!"

We look forward to seeing you at our
2014, 14th Annual Dog Walk / Fundraiser!
