Kudos to the following clubs for promoting AKC events, activities and opportunities across the country. Recognizing and utilizing your members' particular expertise and capabilities to put your own “spin” on AKC's message points helps them go even further.
Cape May County Dog Obedience Training Club (CMCDOTC)
for presenting a check for $2955 to the Cape May County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit. The amount represents one-half of the proceeds of the 2012 Mutt Strut held on the Cape May Promenade in September.
The $2955 donation is earmarked toward the purchase of canine protective vests. None of the county’s K-9s are currently protected. With a cost per vest of approximately $2000, this is a start on an important project.
share of the annual Mutt Strut proceeds is used to defray the cost of training programs for members and those offered to the public and for the Club’s canine community activities. In the past, the group has donated almost $6000 to the Shelter Building Fund of Animal Outreach of Cape May County, supplied pet oxygen masks to fire and rescue companies in Cape May County, contributed to pet food drives, and collected leashes and toys for the County Animal Shelter.
Plans are underway for the 7th Annual Mutt Strut to be held on the Cape May Promenade on Saturday, September 21, 2013 with a rain date of Sunday, September 22.
Does this give you any ideas for community activities in which your club can get involved?
