progress_2015End of Fundraiser update

Hooray! We had an awesome two months of the Dog Days of Summer. We raised nearly $20,000 for Operation Pets Alive mission to help our needy pets in The Woodlands. Our Fishin’ Derby was great success (see photos on our Facebook page:    ) with 9 pets adopted, 5 fishing prizes were awarded, and a Big Grreen Egg was won in a raffle.

Thanks everyone for making our community a friendlier place to live!

Welcome pet lovers and young anglers!

Our 2015 Dog Days of Summer Fundraiser has three exciting opportunities for you to help our pets in need. We’re sponsoring the following events:

Registration

All participants must register before fishing. Registration may be done with the below form or starting at 7 AM on August 22 at Northshore Park. Each participant will receive a name badge and be eligible for awesome prizes. We only have space for 50 fishing families, so register early!

Free Fishin’ Derby

Ready to fish for dogs and cats? You’ll actually catch real fish, but your participation shows support for our pets in need in The Woodlands. All you need to bring is a fishin’ pole and a youngster. We provide the rest.

The Free Fishin’ Derby is officially between 8AM-12PM, August 22, at Northshore Park in The Woodlands. Open only to participants younger than 16 years old and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

  • scooterFirst Fish – A Coleman Sundae 3-Person Tent for those awesome camping trips to the lake.
  • Last Fish – Fuzion PRO-X3 Scooter for zipping around the neighborhood.
  • Most Fish – Lifetime 44″ ProCourt Basketball Hoop and MacGregor Basketball.

Rules for the Fishin’ Derby
We know, rules can be a bummer, but we need to keep the event fair for the youngsters. The number one rule is for your family to have fun. Try to spend a little time with the adoptable dogs and cats that will be at the park. If you know of a good, permanent home, please encourage an adoption! Official rules can be found here: OFFICIAL RULES OF THE Dog Days of Summer 2015 FISHIN’ DERBY
