The Paws on Fire flyball team is hosting a tournament called “The Region 20 Co-Host Tournament” on Saturday and Sunday, September 6th and 7th, at the Carp Fairgrounds. Over 150 people are registered to compete in this tournament. We also expect 50 to 100 spectators. That’s a lot of dog lovers in one place! Paws on Fire is generously donating the profits from this event, including the raffle and the canteen, to two dog rescue groups in the Ottawa area, Hopeful Hearts dog rescue and Bullies in Need dog rescue.
Both rescues are operated by volunteers who work tirelessly in the rescue and placement of dogs that, through no fault of their own, find themselves in a shelter, abandoned or abused, and slated for euthanasia.
BIN (Bullies in Need) focuses on the rescue of bully breeds and also takes in other breeds that find themselves out of time on death row in the shelter system. Their website is: www.bulliesinneed.ca
Hopeful Hearts rescue focuses on the senior and special needs dogs that are often overlooked by other rescues. Seniors and special needs dogs still have a lot of love to give and deserve a chance to find a new forever home. Their website is:www.hopefulhearts.ca

Lots of people came out to the Charity Walk for Hopeful Hearts Rescue held at Bark & Fitz Westboro. A great walk was had by all as the shoppers and walkers on Richmond Rd. pointed and smiled at all of the good looking pooches walking down the street together. After the walk, Bark & Fitz’ Groomers generously donated some nail trims for a donation of $5 to the rescue.

The Friends of Abandoned Pets 10th Annual Dog Walk was held on Saturday June 7th. The day was hot but it didn’t rain and everyone who attended had a great time! The event was a tremendous success and helped to raise close to $20,000!! The money will go towards some animals who really need it. Some toiled long and hard to make this year’s walk the best yet.
