Pittsboro, NC - Just put one paw in front of the other and you’re all set to join the fun at the Woof-A-Palooza dog walk benefiting Chatham Animal Rescue and Education, Inc. (C.A.R.E.). Pittsboro Mayor, Randy Voller, proclaimed Saturday, September 27 as “Woof-A-Palooza Day”. This furry fun raising event will be held from 10 am to 2 pm on the campus of Central Carolina Community College in Pittsboro, NC.

You and your pet will have a howling good time as you enjoy the activities, contests, demonstrations, refreshments and shopping. Adoptable dogs will be awaiting their forever homes at Woof-A-Palooza as well.

Proceeds from the walk provide critical veterinary care and supplies for the animals in C.A.R.E.’s all-volunteer foster program.

Participating in Woof-A-Palooza will help save the lives of animals in our community. Top fundraisers will receive prizes at this year’s Woof walk. Now is the time for animal lovers to begin collecting pledges or organizing walking teams made up of family, friends, co-workers, church groups or civic organizations.

A number of sponsorship opportunities are still available for businesses that want to reach the lucrative community of North Carolina animal lovers. Woof-A-Palooza provides a fantastic opportunity for businesses to showcase their products and services while helping C.A.R.E. in its mission. Families that participate in Woof are ‘lending a helping paw’ in our efforts to protect and place abused, neglected and unwanted animals in Chatham County. They support the businesses and companies that join them in supporting C.A.R.E. There are four levels of corporate sponsorship available: Platinum Sponsor at $1,000, Gold Sponsorship at $500, Silver Sponsorship at $250 and Bronze Sponsorship at $150. Vendor booths are also available.

Walk applications, sponsorship forms and additional in-fur-mation about CARE are available online at Questions? E-mail or call 919-542-5757.

Chatham Animal Rescue and Education, Inc. is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit humane society. All C.A.R.E. animals are fostered in volunteer foster homes. C.A.R.E. pays for food and routine medical expenses such as spay or neuter, rabies vaccinations, deworming and vaccinations. Adoption fees cover the very basic medical expenses of animals, but they do not cover additional treatments that some animals require.
