The Petco parking lot was a hub of activity as dog lovers arrived from all over the metroplex to give their furry companions a day of fun. Many owners watched their dogs go all out on the Rotary’s obstacle course while other dogs dazzled on lookers with a variety of tricks. Most of these north Texas canines were amazingly well behaved while others at times exhibited some unsportsmen like conduct. Take a look at the video above!
All of these pet owners would tell you that their dogs are genuine members of the family. Rotary member Reyna Castillo would agree. She finds it hard to picture what her life would be like without her four year old Airdale Terrior Max.
The Dog Walk is the first event to be put on by the new Rotary Club here in Highland Village. Highland Village Mayor and Rotary member Dianne Costa was also on scene enjoying the days festivities. The Rotary foundation is a nation wide organization with over a million members dedicated to upholding the motto service above self. Each chapter is required to find innovative ways to bring their community together while raising much needed funds for various local charities. Rotary applicants must meet a certain field of qualifications before they can become members.
“They look for people that are active in the community, that live or work in the area of the Rotary Club and that are going to give back,” said Club President Barb Ross. “That’s the whole spirit of the Rotary Club is service above self is the motto.”
Even though the afternoon was dedicated to fun and games several representatives of local humane societies were hard at work trying to find new families for some needy pets. For people that would like to have a dog but face demanding schedules that make it difficult to allow them to adopt the Hope for Humane Society offers them to take a dog home for the weekend. Each dog has received their shots, are fixed, and excellent with family interaction. Unlike your latest movie rental it would be completely acceptable if you decide to keep them.
