Mutts Main Street & Ella’s Walk
Zoom Room Longmont will be opening a store (booth) on Mutts Main Street at the Longmont Humane Society Ella’s Walk Fundraiser on May 19th from 8:30am – 1pm located on the southwest side of Boulder County Fairgrounds.
Ella’s Walk is an annual tribute to Meredith Hope Emerson to continue the loving legacy of the Longmont resident who was tragically killed in January 2008. Meredith, 24, had a deep love for animals, and adopted her beloved Labrador retriever mix, Ella, from a rescue organization. The Emerson family hopes “Ella’s Walk” will be an inspiration to all those who have been moved by her compassion for animals and people.
The Longmont Humane Society’s (LHS) 2012 goal is to reach $45,000! Zoom Room Longmont is proud to be supporting team “The Spice Girls” for the many spicy named dogs we call friends & clients! Help LHS meet their goal by donating and/or joining our team to walk. The walk starting at 9:30am consists of a 3 mile loop from Boulder Fairgrounds to Rogers Grove.
Participants are encouraged to shop Mutts Main Street and watch the many dog-tastic demonstrations provided by LHS training class graduates. There will also be an adoptable pet parade of LHS animals looking for their forever homes. Look for the vests the adoptable pets wear as volunteers stroll around the grounds – you just might trip over your next family member!
For every $125 donation you obtain, Zoom Room will gift you an official Zoom Room t-shirt. All Team dogs will get to wear a Zoom Room orange colored bandana! Be sure to stop at our booth before the walk to get your goods!
If you are bringing a dog – check out these helpful hints:
1. Walk with or without a dog, only one dog per person.
2. All dogs must be on a 6’ or shorter non-retractable leash. Unruly dogs will be asked to leave.
3. Dogs must be in good health and current on all vaccinations, including rabies.
4. Dogs must be at least 6 months old.
5. No dating – dogs in heat may not attend.
6. Don’t get dehydrated! Dog water stations are community style, humans get individual cups. You are welcome to bring an individual bowl for your own dog.
7. Be courteous of others, clean up after your dog. Bags will be available at registration and at the park.
8. There will be a veterinarian on-site in case of emergencies for pets and a first aid station for humans.
(Remember May can be quite toasty so be sure to keep yourself and your dog hydrated and don’t forget the sunscreen!)
