“Walk & Wag” expected to be a howling good time

Gregory Rosso and his furry friend had a great time at the 2018 Walk & Wag.

Dogs all over Colleton County are excited as they know this weekend is their favorite weekend of the year. The sixth annual Walk and Wag will be held on Saturday, September 28. Grab your leash and your dog and head on over to the Discovery Center Parking Lot located on the corner of Jefferies and Washington Streets. Don’t worry if you don’t have a dog to bring. Humans are allowed even without a canine escort. The fun starts at 10:00 am and will run until 1:00 pm.
Friends of the Colleton County Animal Shelter (FoCCAS) has worked hard once again, ensuring event-goers a doggone good time. A limited supply of t-shirts will be available for purchase at the event for only $15. Hot Dogs will be served for lunch and are FREE if you are wearing the 2019 Walk and Wag T-shirt. Lunch can also be purchased for $3 if you do not wish to purchase a T-shirt. Folks will also be able to take part in one of the two scheduled walks through the Walterboro Wildlife Sanctuary. Walks will leave around 11:00 am and 12:00 pm. Several booths will be set up for humans to browse.
While listening to the sounds of the “Going to the Dogs Band,” pets and owners will be able to place their order for the 2020 FoCCAS calendar which will be available for pick up in November. These are great Christmas gifts and are only $12. For an additional $3, they can even be delivered. The Squealing Sow BBQ and Catering Company will also be offering free snow cones to those in attendance. A fun raffle will also be taking place as Charlie Linder has donated five sweetgrass baskets and Treasure Chest Gold has donated a $250 prepaid Visa card. Tickets can be purchased in advance from any board member or at the event before the drawing at 12:30 pm. You don’t have to be present to win, but who would want to miss out on all of this fun.
FoCCAS doesn’t want folks to let the heat or chance of rain keep them from coming out. Watering bowls are at each tent and are kept full of freshwater and pools will also be onsite for your furry friends to jump in to cool off. All proceeds raised will help FoCCAS continue their Spay/Neuter community program as well as their Rescue and Adoption efforts. Fifty community sponsors have stepped up for the animals, and they hope to see you there too.
