Fundraiser to enable free dog training
for disabled dog owners in need
A dog-friendly fundraiser will help provide free dog obedience training classes to low-income disabled residents of the Minneapolis area. The "Make It Pawsible" event is slated for Thursday, Aug. 6, from 6-8 p.m. in the Waterbury Building, Room 107, 1121 Van Buren St. NE in Northeast Minneapolis.
The Make It Pawsible event will feature free pizza (while supplies last), door prizes, dog treat samples, a "photo with your dog" booth and more. Raffle items will include everything from a "Shed Happens" T-shirt and pet-product gift baskets to a free dog dermatology exam.
The event has been organized by a Thrivent Action Team of volunteers led by Minneapolis resident Melinda Weir. Sponsors and raffle prize donors include Thrivent Financial, the Animal Humane Society and more than 10 local businesses and organizations that provide pet-related products and services.
