Dog walker Dan Meyer and his team of dog walkers at The Leash Team are proud to announce a $6,000 donation to Misfits of Alberta Animal Rescue. The cheque presentation was made at a local dog park Saturday afternoon.
The Leash Team raised funds through its recent Dog Adventure Days. 100% of the proceeds from the dog walking Adventure and donations from clients, family, and friends made this possible. The monthly events provide a unique experience for dogs to explores the local outdoors in and around Edmonton. Activities for each Dog Adventure Day include on-leash trail hikes, dog picnics, dog games, and a lot of love and socialization.
“This weekend’s experience with Misfits has been so incredible and meaningful to us. Even during a pandemic, people step up. That is the true spirit of Edmonton. We are so touched by the support we have decided to take a portion of every Dog Adventured Day and donate it back to Misfits.” said Dan Meyer, The Leash Team Founder. “They are an extraordinary organization that shares our values and love for animals by providing temporary and then forever loving homes and resources for animals in need.”
Misfits of Alberta is an all animal rescue based out of Parkland County, AB, founded by three sisters on a mission to be the voice for the most vulnerable animals. “This donation is a game-changer for us,” said Brooke Roskey, Misfits Co-Founder. “We are 100% volunteer-run and rely on donations and amazing fundraisers such as this to continue saving lives. Thank you to The Leash Team!”
The Leash Team is hosting its next Dog Adventure Day on August 29th. Once again, a portion of the proceeds will go to support Misfits of Alberta Animal Rescue.
