Elderwood tells us:

Elderwood at Hamburg invites you to join us for our 2nd Annual Pet Blessing and Pet Extravaganza on Saturday, October 3rd (St. Francis Day is October 4th) from 10am to 1pm. We had 300-400 people attend the event last year and three dogs were adopted even with though it was a cloudy, rainy day. We are hoping for even more guests, adoptions and nice weather!

We plan to have two 40x60 tents, (if we have enough participants, we provide a table, two chairs and lunch for two volunteers. Our Chaplain Deborah Tyler will be blessing pets, providing certificates and treat bags that she has blessed. We will be grilling hot dogs and selling a lunch special (can of soda, chips and hot dog). Proceeds from our raffle and lunch sales will benefit a rescue organization that participates in our event.

If you would like to participate as a rescue or vendor:

  • Plan to have a table, if you are a rescue organization, we’d love you to bring adoptable pets! We will provide the table and two chairs. The sooner we hear that you are committed to participate the more advertising your group’s name will be included in!
  • Donate a basket for our raffle or a service voucher. All groups donating will be listed on our promotional materials. We’d appreciate you dropping off any raffle baskets or mailing any gift certificates.

Attached you will find a short registration form that we ask that you return with a copy of your logo to use for promotional materials if you choose to participate
