Walk your dog through Festival of Lights

Published 9:08 am Thursday, November 9, 2017

Paws in the Park is a unique opportunity to walk through the Tanglewood Festival of Lights with or without a four-legged puppy pal.

Last year had 2,000 participants. The 2017 goal is to have 2,500 attendees for the 4th Annual Paws In The Park. Proceeds will help us rescue, care for, and place abandoned dogs and cats into homes.

It will take place at the park in Clemmons on Tuesday, Nov. 14 from 5:30-9:30 p.m., rain or moonshine.

The evening will also include:

• a food truck rodeo;

• holiday shopping;

• a stroll through the enchanted light display with or without your tail wagging friends.

Here is what a few past participants said:

“I’ve attended the Paws in the park every year and thoroughly enjoy it. I like walking through the lights with my family and our furbabies and getting to dress them up in the holiday spirit. It’s just a fun event that I have always had a good time at. Most importantly, I love the fact that it goes towards the humane society to help other furbabies out.”

“We like everything about it. All dogs were very well behaved, the walk was perfect and the lights magical. Wrapped up the evening with excellent food from the food trucks.”

Tickets are: Advanced Adult Ticket, $20,

2 Adult Advanced Tickets Package, $35 or  Advanced Family Deal : $40. This ticket includes two adults and all accompanying children.

The Humane Society of Davie County (HSDC) is a non-profit animal rescue organization focused on preventing cruelty and suffering among dogs and cats through rescue, adoption, and education. Rescue efforts center on pulling dogs and cats from the county-run animal shelter and placing them with area adopters, area rescue groups, and out-of-state rescue groups.

HSDC offers spay/neuter clinic transports for local pet owners and seeks to assist in volunteer-led community cat spay/neuter projects. Education initiatives in the local school system and community events focus on responsible pet ownership. All of these programs contribute to reducing animal overpopulation and saving the lives of more abandoned cats and dogs. Donations of time and money contribute toward HSDC’s mission.
