Letter to the Editor: Thanks Due for Generosity at Angels on Wheels Animal Rescue

Send your letters to the editor to natalie.stevens@patch.com.

Thanks to our great community for their attendance and generosity at our recent fundraiser for Angels on Wheels Animal Rescue.  We raised over $1100 to help Angels on Wheels with veterinary expenses recently incurred from some puppies with parvovirus and a little terrier with a genetic problem.

We had several teens from Oswego High School volunteer and help with set up, registration, nail trims, selling food, contest judging and clean up.  Thanks to Daniel Breyne at Oswego East High School for arranging the teens.  They did a fantastic job and really helped a ton.

Thanks to Go Dog Go, Flydogs Training, Nurture Your Pets, Wolfmama Animal Services, Fox Valley Animal Welfare League and Pawduke Treats for supporting our event and coming out and participating.

Thanks to Cathy White and Molly Hankins for getting fliers out in advance of the event.  Thanks to Pam Parness, Karen and Tom Walker for the tasty treats and Karen & Tom for selling them at the event.  Thanks to Terri Thompson for organizing the registration area and our fabulous employees Sarah Gane, Angie Stifle and Marty Kowalski for volunteering their time at this event to help homeless animals.

Thanks to everyone that came and donated so generously and participated in the various contests with their dogs.  We all had a fun time and will look to do Howl-o-ween again in 2013.

For anyone wanting to volunteer for any animal rescue event, please contact Central Bark at Oswego@CentralBarkUSA.com.  Our next fundraiser will be the Puppy Bowl on Saturday, February 2, 2013 from noon to 3pm.  We will be raising funds, awareness and supplies for a variety of rescue groups.  Watch our website or facebook page or The Patch for information.
