We are again asking Dane-a-Thon participants to get sponsorship from friends and family or simply make a donation. Your generosity helps support the many Great Danes we rescue who are desperately in need of help and makes it possible to save those who would otherwise be euthanized because of prohibitive costs to get them well.
Time and Place
Date: May 3, 2015 – Rain or shine!
Please note: This is the ONLY D-a-T event being held this year.
At: 2447 Victoria St. N., Breslau, ON
