Before the dog days of summer set in, the Highland Village Rotary Club in Texas is celebrating its 2nd Annual Paws for a Cause Dog Walk.
“Its a wonderful event,” said German Short-Hair Rescue Member Steve Mackey. “I didn’t really realize it’s as big as it was.”
This event is about more than just walking dogs. It is a family friendly event focusing on fun and fund raising.
“We believe in fund raising and getting together and focusing our efforts on activities that are going to raise funds for different needs in the community,” said Highland Village Rotary Club member Angela Kreig.
The Rotary Club’s Paws for a Cause not only focuses on human needs in the community, but animals needs as well.
“Our first dog walk last year, we adopted approximately 14 dogs and found new homes for them so this year we’re trying to beat that,” said Kreig.
For Donna Goldfeder and Brooke Rojas, attending this event is bittersweet.
“We came out in memory of our son and brother that passed away a year ago who was a life resident of Highland Village and supported rescue dogs,” said participant Donna Goldfeder. “We heard about the rotary walk and we thought we needed to do that for him and HV.”
Knowing that they’re continuing Douglas Owens’ support of rescuing and caring for dogs keeps Owens’ mission alive. These actions, along with the efforts of all the volunteers , can guarantee that here, every dog will have his day.
