This arrived too late for our print edition, but check out this fun opportunity for families with dogs, in a benefit for Angels' Care Animal Rescue on Saturday:
Why should parents of two-legged children have all the fun when Easter rolls around?
Well, the folks at Angels’ Care Animal Rescue have remedied the situation by hosting their First Ever Dog-Gone Easter Egg Hunt. Dogs and their owners are invited to sniff out over 1,000 treat-filled Easter eggs. Every egg contains a doggie treat with some also containing special prizes. One golden Easter egg will be hidden for the finder to win a "Great Dane-Sized Prize!"
Owners are encouraged to dress their dogs in their Easter finest to strut and wiggle their tails in the Easter Bonnet Parade. A prize will be awarded to the canine wearing the best designed bonnet. A donation of $10 includes a doggie goody bag and participation in the Dog-Gone Easter Egg Hunt and other eggciting events including the Easter Bonnet Parade, lots of fun contests for the dogs, and a silent auction/raffle. For an additional donation, Easter photos for pets and people will be available. Egg hunters should bring their own basket or sack to collect the eggs.
This charity event takes place Saturday, April 15, at Reservoir Park in Little Rock. The park is located on Cantrell Road, one block east of Reservoir Road. Registration starts at 12:30 p.m. with the Dog-Gone Easter Egg Hunt beginning at 1 p.m.
All dogs are welcome to join in the fun; the only requirements being dogs must possess an up-to-date Rabies tag/certificate and not be aggressive. Pooches taking part in the event must be kept on a leash, and owners must stay with their dogs at all times. Canine water stations and scooping bags provided.
Angels’ Care is a volunteer-based animal rescue organization with no paid employees; and 100 percent of all donation proceeds from this event will be poured directly back into the community by spaying and neutering homeless animals.
