Louie’s Legacy Race to Rescue and Community Event
Join Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue for the first annual “Race to Rescue” on Saturday, September 15th, from 2PM to 6PM. This special event, aimed at spreading the word about responsible pet ownership, building fellowship with other pet parents, and helping special pets find forever families, will be held at Kennel Resorts in Milford. The rescue group is holding this event in conjunction with its sister location in New York City to build solidarity for animals across the country.
The keystone of the event will be a dog walk at 3PM, repeating a half-mile long trail as long as walkers would like. To participate in the walk, please pre-register here; top fundraisers will be awarded prizes. In addition to the walk, Cincinnati’s “Race to Rescue” will feature a free community event filled with pet-friendly vendors, pet care information, raffles, a pet adoption station, a children’s area, and more! The first 30 families also will receive free “Wag Bags” packed with special gifts, and everyone will get a booklet with a Kennel Resorts map, pet ownership tips, games, and coupons for pet products. Demonstrations and other learning experiences also will take place, including the Ohio State Troopers K9 Division, Animal Communicators and Animal Healing Touch Practitioners Cindy Huff and Terri Noftsger, and pet trainers.
Louie’s Legacy was established in 2009 as a no-kill, all breed animal shelter that rescues, rehabilitates, and re-homes animals saved from high kill shelters in Ohio and New York. Emily Gear, founder and president of Louie’s Legacy, hopes families will come out for a fun free day, and leave with a new understanding of responsible pet ownership (and maybe apply to adopt a new friend!) Even if you can’t make the event on the 15th, please visit the Louie’s Legacy website to see their animals for adoption or other ways you can help or volunteer! What ways can you help to save the 8,200 – 10,960 cats and dogs who are euthanized in the United States each day?
