5th Annual Dog-Gone Easter Egg Hunt (April 1, 2012)

On 4/1/12 the 5th Annual Dog-Gone Easter Egg Hunt will happen at Rainier Vista Park in Lacey.

For just $3 per adult (kids under 12 get in free) you can give your canine buddies a fun-filled day with the focus all on them. All proceeds go to two local charities: Feline Friends and Old Dog Haven.

Here are three great reasons why the tiny $3 cover charge is more than worth it:

  • Your dogs will get social time with other dogs and dog-lovers.
  • You’ll get a free bag full of goodies if you’re one of the first 500 people to arrive!
  • All the proceeds go to Feline Friends and Old Dog Haven.

The event that most dogs enjoy is the egg hunt. They hunt for plastic eggs that have stickers inside, each of which can be exchanged for a dog-oriented prize. (The hunt is fairly easy, and each egg that your dog’s nose touches counts as a “find” and can be put in your basket.)

There’s also a dog fashion show/contest. It costs $3 per dog entered into the contest and there are prizes for two categories: Big Dog and Little Dog.

In addition, there will l be:

  • Booths for local businesses (mostly pet-related) and rescue groups. (Often these businesses have give-aways to anyone who stops at their booth.)
  • Agility, flyball, and nosework demonstrations.
  • A bake sale with very tasty homemade treats. (All bake sale proceeds go to the charities!)
  • A raffle for fantastic pet-related items donated by local businesses. (All raffle proceeds go to the charities!)
