Over the past years our annual walk has been a great success, proving that Paws in the Park
is the place to be this summer! This year the walk will again be one of our major fundraising events.
The event will be held outdoors, at the Wayside Inn in Sudbury, MA from 10:00AM to
3:00PM on Sunday, June 3, 2012. With the field size, we will be able to offer space for a larger number of
vendors and rescues groups. We will start the day off with our group walk at 11:00PM. The activities
include an agility ring, demonstrations, parade of adoptable dogs, doggie games, face painting for the
kids, a silent auction, raffles, vendors and more. We also had around 50 dog rescue groups and
commercial exhibitors in attendance last year.
The event will attract many people from the greater Boston and the Metro west area who have
adopted from Save A Dog as well as people currently looking for a new dog companion and local
dog owners enjoying a fun day out with their dogs! The event will be advertised on the internet
as well as in many newspapers and on the radio stations that have chosen to sponsor us this year.
These sponsorships are designed to afford companies an opportunity to interact with the community
in a positive, upbeat venue. This is an opportunity to promote teamwork within your company
in a non-work setting. Your staff and their families have an enjoyable time while working for
a specific goal of helping a local non-profit. Companies that choose to participate are given
their own booth to staff and decorate with company products (upon approval of the Paws in
the Park Committee).
Your staff is allowed to wear company clothing to aid with marketing your organization. Participating
companies have found that it is a great way to promote themselves within their community with a
limited investment of time, money, and effort. Please review some of the available sponsorships and
see how you and your company can help support Paws In The Park 2012.
Every sponsor receives a 10 x 10 booth space at Paws in the Park (please bring a table and a pop-up tent).
