There is SO much stuff to do coming up - I can't believe it. The rest of July and August is going to be amazing.
This Sunday July 18th - there's going to be Meet ‘n’ Greet Bark-B-Que - at Flynn Park, in Halifax from 12:00pm - 4:00pm in aid of the Animal Rescue Coalitions - what it says on the facebook page is "The main attraction will of course be ARC's residents and adoptable fur babies, there to Meet and Greet you with puppy kisses" - there's tons of information on the Facebook page - so you should go check it out!
Also on Sunday (July 18th) at 1pm - if you've got a small dog, or specifically a pug or Boston - you're in luck, because there's going to be a combined pug and boston meet at the Shubie Park off leash beach area. They have a Facebook event page set up to get things organized - because those groups like to be organized, so go check out the page to see who all is going.
The Al Fresco Film Festo starts July 23rd - and in past years it's been dog friendly - so I'm really hoping that this year it will continue with that tradition - it's down on the Halifax waterfront, so take your canine life companion - and go watch Dirty Dancing together!
And in that same vein - Shakespeare By The Sea down at Point Pleasant Park is also dog friendly - if your dog can handle that kind of atmosphere - sitting quietly by your side for a couple of hours while people act silly in front of you - and other people are laughing and crying and gesticulating and having fun - and if your dog is up for that and you are crazy like me and want to spend as much time with the most important sentient being in your life - spend your hard earned dollars at a cultural event that lets you take your dog with you! Go to their website to find out what's playing and when at - http://www.shakespearebythesea.ca/ - you can also check out my Point Pleasant Park page on my Charlie loves Halifax site to find out more about the park!
Saturday, July 24, 2010 H.A.R.T. is having a "Paw Raiser" - there's going to be a yard sale, chance auction, bake sale, bbq and door prize - it`s going to happen from 9:00am - 3:00pm at the Centrelea Community Hall, Hwy #201 Centerlea, Bridgetown, NS - they also have a facebook event page set up for you to check out.
July 27th is one of the NS SPCA's major fundraising events - Kwik Kopy's Putting for Pets taking place at The Links at Penn Hills Golf Course. Registration is from 8:00 am to 9:15 am and tee time is 9:30 am. Prices are $170.00 per person or $600.00 per team which includes green fees, carts, dinner and prizes. This year they want to raise $12,000 - so that's a lot of golf balls that need to be putted, or teed - or whatever it is that you do on golf courses - I'm not a golfer - so I hope they have a good time on the golf course - although I do like to wear golf shirts though! haha!
The folks at Kwik Kopy are pretty passionate about the SPCA - and they're having hot dog barbeques at their store periodically throughout the summer to raise extra money for the shelter in Dartmouth - you can check out their blog which features their store dogs Gollum and Rose to look for upcoming dates!
Also benefiting the H.A.R.T. rescue is a golf tournament Saturday, July 31, 2010
11:00am - 5:00pm at the Annapolis Royal Golf and Country Club - there`s a $50 registration per person or $200 per team that will guarantee you a fun filled day of golf that will help out a ton of kitties down in the Valley. Sounds like a win-win situation to me. For more information - go to the Facebook page!
August 1st from 5-7:30PM there`s going to be a critter walk to aid Healing Animals SCARS over on the Boardwalk at Fisherman's Cove in Eastern Passage to help the kittens and cats - Please email email@example.com for a pledge sheet and check out her facebook page for more info

August 29th - Atlantic Small Dogs Rescue is hosting a picnic and fund raiser - at "Sandra's house" - that sounds like fun! haha!
