Belle Mead Animal Hospital was proud to be the lead sponsor of the WOOF IT! Dog Walk and Celebration on Sunday, May 7, 2017 to benefit Animal Alliance of New Jersey. The event took place at the Sarah Dilts Farm Park in Stockton from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. with all proceeds to help the rescued dogs and cats.
The $15 pre-registration fee ($20 the day of) included a 3/4 mile dog walk on the trail around the farm park, contests for the children and dogs, face painting, and balloons. Music provided by a local DJ added to the festivities. The dog participants received souvenir bandannas and were treated to “Wag Bags” full of goodies. A caricaturist, raffle baskets, vendors, and food were also available for purchase during the event.
There were a few rules to follow for the safety of all those participating. Only well-mannered, non-aggressive pets were welcome to participate with a limit of two dogs per walker. Non-retractable, 6 ft. leashes were required as well as proof of rabies vaccination.
Dr. Kim Somjen and Technician Taylor Boylan offered pet rehabilitation and massage therapy demonstrations at the Belle Mead Animal Hospital table. Visitors were able to ask questions and had a chance to learn how the rehabilitation therapies offered at the BMAH Pet Pain Clinic might benefit their own pet.
It was a fun day for a worthwhile cause! Visit our Belle Mead Animal Hospital YouTube Channel to see some of the pet rehabilitation demonstrations in action!
