Here’s the outline for this event that promises to be a LOT of fun. More promo and information to follow soon. Any questions, please post below. Thanks!

Join Greyhounds Rock  and Tripawds for a Great Time!

Memorial Day Weekend, Fredericksburg Virginia

Attention pets and people! Greyhounds Rock Fredericksburg and the Tripawds Community are together again! This time for a fun-filled Memorial Day Weekend fundraiser in Fredericksburg, Virginia, especially for all pet pawrents, dogs and cats who have been touched by pet cancer and life on three legs (but every pet pawrent is welcome to attend!).

Make plans now to be there on Saturday May 23 and Sunday May 24 for two days of all-things dogs (and cats too!). Whether you are owned by an animal with three or four legs, you are invited! Here’s what you and your furry companions can expect:

Day 1: Hoppy Hour!

Saturday, May 23, 5pm
Location: Hartwood Manor, Hartwood, VA

Let’s get to know each other over a wine and cheese during a fun-filled happy hour at Hartwood Manor, a pre-Civil War era home lovingly restored by Greyhounds Rock members Connie and Steve Hilker. Butt-sniffing is not required.

Day 2: The Main Event

Sunday, May 24, 1pm – 9pm-ish
Location: Piney Branch Ranch Spotsylvania, VA This day-long event will include non-stop fun, learning and friendship for pets and their people. We’ll have a wild time with activities that include:

  • a doggie-centric scavenger hunt and walk
  • door prizes!
  • interactive pet health education with veterinary experts
  • memorial bonfire in honor of our beloved animals whose lives were lost to cancer.
  • fenced-in area for dogs to run.
  • a day in the country with your best friend

A casual but tasty old fashioned cookout will be served, along with refreshing beverages and plenty of healthy treats for the furkids.

Logistics:

Advance registration is required through Greyhounds ROCK Website. The event is a fundraiser for Greyhounds Rock and the new Tripawds Foundation . Cost is $20 per person. Any funds remaining after expenses will be divided among the two organizations. All dogs must be leashed. We’ll have plenty of water bowls but you can make sure your dog has access by bringing a water dish. Although we know our dogs would prefer hot dogs and hamburgers for dinner, please bring your dog’s usual food to eat at dinnertime. For ultimate comfort, bring a doggie bed / blanket for lounging and there will be plenty of room to set up X-pens around the property. To ensure your own comfort, bring an outdoor chair, wear plenty of sunscreen and comfy clothing suitable for warmer weather.

Traveling from Out of Town?

Historic Fredericksburg is located approximately 50 miles from Richmond and 50 miles from Washington, D.C. If you’re traveling from out of town, a block of rooms has been reserved for this event at the pet-friendly at Fredericksburg Hospitality House Hotel and Conference Center, located just a few miles from weekend activities, (room rates are $89 + a one time pet fee of $25 and taxes). Please reserve your room now and specify you’re attending the “Greyhounds ROCK” event.

Miscellania

If you want to volunteer door prizes or helping with set-up for the event, please contact us, we’d love the help!

Next year I am coming to this.  Maybe not with my furkids but I will be there.  This year with surgeries for the girls next week I just don’t have the funds but I will plan on it next year.  :)   That is a promise I intend on keeping

 

Hope everyone has a great time

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife
