wagthedogAngelDogs Foundation (www.angeldogsfoundation.org) will host “Rock, Walk & Wag” (www.rockwalkwag.org), on April 27, 2013 from 9:30 am to 2 pm at Central Park in Santa Clarita.  The community event is designed to increase awareness of the overpopulation issue, educate the public, and raise funds for spay/neuter services throughout Southern and Central California.  The day will be filled with lots of free, family-oriented fun, live music, vendors, pet adoptions, L.A. food truck favorites, and veterinary clinic services.

“Our goal is to provide the community with a free, festive springtime event, suitable for the entire family,” said Lisa Tipton, Director of AngelDogs Foundation. “We want to take this opportunity to explain to the public why spay and neuter is so important, how as a pet owner it’s the responsible thing to do, and how this common procedure actually saves so many lives.…and we also want to find as many forever homes as possible for the adoptable dogs and cats brought to Rock, Walk & Wag by the participating shelters and rescues.”

Title sponsor Galpin of Santa Clarita was happy to come on board and support AngelDogs Foundation’s mission. “Rock, Walk & Wag is right up our alley. We all know Subaru and pets go hand in hand,” said David Gillum, General Manager of Galpin Subaru. “Subaru has supported national animal welfare organizations for many years. I feel it’s important to focus on our local community by giving back and supporting events such as this one. AngelDogs Foundation is a wonderful organization who services our community and has a mission we can believe in.”

Rock Walk & Wag will begin promptly at 9:30am with a short, fund raising dog walk along Central Park’s Perimeter Trail, followed by the festival at 10 a.m. Those looking to add a four-legged member to the family can stroll along Adoption Alley, sponsored by Natural Balance, where LA County Department of Animal Care and Control, Kern County Animal Control, and Best Friends Animal Society – Los Angeles, will be offering reduced fee adoptions.

“On the back of every package of Natural Balance Pet Food, you will find the words ‘Help Me Help Animals’ directly above Dick Van Patten’s signature. It’s not just a slogan, but a vow we take very seriously. As a pet food manufacturer, we believe it is our inherent responsibility to support organizations like AngelDogs Foundation and the extraordinary work they do on behalf of animals in need,” said Lindsay Kirschner, Affiliate Program Manager at Natural Balance. “By committing as a sponsor to Rock, Walk & Wag, our hope is that we can help spread the mission of AngelDogs Foundation and educate the community about their cause.”

Guests will have the opportunity to interact with a variety of vendors and sponsors such as Santa Clarita Animal Hospital, take part in the silent auction, enter prize drawings, and enjoy delicious food from popular food trucks such as Hang 10 Tacos, Meat the Greek, Crepe’N Around, Streets of Thailand and Kona Ice. Performances from Wildwood Highway, Lock Down and Sierra Highway will take place throughout the day. Friendly, well-socialized dogs are welcome to join their owners on the walk and/or at the festival.

Walkers are currently being recruited to help raise funds for spay/neuter, with online registration available at www.rockwalkwag.org/walkers.html. You can also register to walk day of event, onsite at Central Park in Santa Clarita, the morning of the event. “It’s a fun, fantastic way for anyone to help less fortunate companion pets in their community,” Tipton said.

 

AngelDogs Foundation operates a non-profit mobile spay/neuter clinic that services Los Angeles and Kern Counties, and founded the first all-breed deaf dog rescue ranch (www.angeldogsfoundationdeafdogranch.org) in the country, located in the high desert of Southern California. Committed to improving the lives of companion animals and their people, their services help prevent loss of life, and create safer communities in some of the most challenged neighborhoods in Los Angeles and Kern Counties. To date, the mobile clinic has fixed, vaccinated and micro-chipped over 26,000 animals and has become a sustainable, self-supporting program. The deaf dog ranch has saved the lives and rehomed hundreds of deaf dogs, rescued from all over the country.
