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.

Start Time: 11 a.m.
Location: PARIS FAIRGROUNDS, 139 SILVER STREET, PARIS, ON

- Sales Table
