If you're up in the Valley - CAPS is having an adoption event called "CAPS day at the mall with some fosters" - they've got a Facebook event page set up that you can go and join up at to learn more and get hooked up with.
It's happening April 9th from 11am to 3pm at the Greenwood Mall.
The Companion Animal Protection Society of Annapolis Valley is a tireless rescue group that saves a ton of animals up in the Valley - and going out into the community to advertise adoptable animals is a key ingredient in the no-kill solution - I am so happy that their organization is getting out there and doing events like this and showing Nova Scotia the beautiful adoptable animals that are available.
The recently opened Pet Valu store in Clayton Park is participating in their chain wide venture to raise $250,000 for local rescues/shelters on the weekend of April 9th and 10th - and they'll be selling "paws" for a minimum donation of $1 as well as collecting food, treats, toys, etc that can be donated in store. Their store will be donating to the metro SPCA. The "paws" are for sale in store now and until the end of April.
I'm sure you'll be hearing a lot more from the group as the year wears on!
Ann MacLean, who owns Flying Tails Dog Training - has a couple workshops going on in April - she has them listed on her website at http://www.flyingtailsdogtraining.ca/ - Two sessions of Spring Ground School (skills focus): Threadles and Push-Thrus, and Serpentines
In May she has Grids and Games on 28 May. It is a first in a sequence of essential skills and foundation work, and will be followed by One Jump and More on Jun 25 and Stunning Jumping (double box and sequences) on Jul 16.
Ann also has - "1 to 4 Flying Lessons": Individual, Semi, Tri, and Quad sessions are available, mainly on evening and weekends, and are tailored to meet your specific needs, whether it be life skills or agility. Individual, Semi, Tri, and Quad sessions are $40, $35, $30, $25 per person for 1h 15min. Team up to save on costs!
As someone who has always only walked her dogs on beaches and in the woods - all of this agility terminology sounds way too much like math!
