Puppy Love Caring Canines is a local nonprofit organization that “partners trained assistance dogs with disabled individuals, helping them to maintain a safer and more independent lifestyle.” This wonderful group hosts an annual fundraiser, Wag-N-Wheel. This year it is taking place on August 18th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Roseland Park in Edina. Dog owners can take their dogs on a one mile walk in the dog parade, and there are multiple raffle drawings and a silent auction.
Melissa Faue, Director of Career Services at MSB Shakopee, is working with Valley View Pet Hospital in Burnsville to raise items for the silent auction. Items you can donate include toys, treats, leashes, puppy apparel, beds, books, gift cards to pet stores, etc. If you want to help out a worthy cause, drop off these items to Melissa by August 16th.
