New this year: Sign up to run for your favorite dog team, Team Canon, Team Aphrodite, and Team Piper! The participants who raise the most money for our shelter get the special perk for our dog park for their team…
Canon gets agility equipment! Aphrodite gets pool toys! Piper gets tennis balls!
Piper has been waiting for her forever home for two years. She can’t wait for our dog park to open so she can have grass beneath her feet as she chases tennis balls all day long! If “Team Piper” raises the most money for Wiggle Waggle, Valley Animal Center will purchase a tennis ball machine along with 500 tennis balls for Piper and all her canine friends!
Canon is an energized explorer who just got adopted after waiting for more than 3 years! He can’t wait to come back to visit the dog park with his new family so he can put all of his energy to a positive use with lots of open space to run! If “Team Canon” raises the most money for Wiggle Waggle, Valley Animal Center will purchase dog agility equipment for Canon and all his canine friends to enjoy!
Aphrodite is one of the staff favorites here at VAC, and just got adopted after waiting nearly a year for her forever home! She absolutely loves to romp and play in the water, so she can’t wait to come back to the dog park with her new family to make a splash in the 2,000 gallon swimming pool! If “Team Aphrodite” raises the most money for Wiggle Waggle, Valley Animal Center will purchase $500 worth of water play toys for Aphrodite and all her water-loving friends!
