PAR's 6th Annual Hay Day Giveway! - Saturday, December 18, 2004

PAR's annual "Hay Day Giveaway" is an event hosted to help low income families or those at risk for neglecting the needs of their pets, who are kept outdoors in the winter. Bales of straw are purchased from a farmer in Blissfield who sells it to us for a very reasonable price, alone with the use of his horse trailer to transport it to its designated site.

Included with the straw are handouts offering cold weather tips and facts that are pertinent to helping pets survive the winter outdoors. The goal of this event is to help dogs who would otherwise go without proper shelter/insulation and educate the people as well. This may be one of our most important events that we do all year!

This year's giveaway took place from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. at the carryout on the corner of Detroit and Delaware. All 75 bales of straw were dispensed to needy pet owners. A local television news reporter covered the event. Thanks to Sue, Roger, Tami, Keith and Jan for helping to make the Hay Day a success!
