Saturday morning, August 27th, visitors may take part in a 5K Run/1 mile walk. Following the race visitors may enjoy activities including demos, vendors, speakers, dog contests, agility course, pet spa, pet portraits and more. On Sunday, August 28th , a benefit pancake breakfast is held.
Activities will be held inside and out at the pet friendly hotel. Well -behaved, leashed and vaccinated dogs are welcomed.
Pro Plan Rally to Rescue is a program supported by Purina to help rescue organizations give pets the nutrition and care they need and deserve.
Excelsior Springs Friends of Animals has been a Purina ProPlan Rally to Rescue Ambassador since 2008. The pet rescue is one of a few organizations that meet program requirements and are selected by Pro Plan to receive a range of financial, promotional and event support.Purina realizes that smaller organizations are often overlooked by potential donors due to their limited fundraising and marketing capabilities.
Similarly, the PETCO Foundation has worked with and supported more than 6,200 local animal welfare groups across the country to help find homes for more than 200,000 adoptable animals every year.
