Annual Egg Hunt for Dogs -- April 5th

Our annual Egg Hunt for Dogs and their people was held Saturday, April 5 at a new location for 2014 -- Little Creek Park located off Jonestown Road.  Our volunteers constructed loads of gift baskets and filled hundreds (maybe thousands?) of plastic eggs with goodies in anticipation of the BIG day.

Check out pictures of the event provided by photographer Carol Maurin by clicking on and visit our Facebook page for more photos by AARF volunteers.

A special thanks to the sponsors that are making this year's event the best ever: A Kinder Cut, Best Bet Painters, Dynasty Furniture, Elite Canine, North Carolina Art and Antiques Mall, Red Woof Inn Boarding and Training, Signs Now, Systel Printing, Vela, WholePet, and Womble Carlyle.
