“This event gives folks an opportunity to show off their four-legged friends in a family-oriented environment, while supporting two awesome organizations actively involved in our community,” said Allison Hungerford of SQSPCA. “I’m most excited to see some of our cutest SQSPCA alumni who I hope will be coming to the show!”
“Rotary has always been such a wonderful partner for the Susquehanna SPCA,” said Stacie Haynes, Executive Director of SQSPCA. “We are thrilled to come together again to bring this new and exciting event to our community. Our goal is to spread awareness of our two organizations, which both work to improve the world around us, and also to raise funds to support our missions. We encourage folks to attend as either competitors in the dog show or spectators there to enjoy the fun.”
Families are encouraged to come with or without their dogs to watch the show and enjoy the activities — food trucks, vendors, activities for children, and more! Proceeds from the event benefit SQSPCA and the Cooperstown Rotary Club.
