This past Sunday, Don and I took Will down to the Farmers Market in Aksarben Village to get some produce, walk around and grab a cupcake at Jones Bros Cupcakes. Much to my delight, there were three women who had a stand selling dog treats.
In talking to these wonderful women, I found out that they sell homemade dog treats all year to raise money for the Nebraska Humane Society’s Walk for the Animals. They also do other events like dog washes and Yappytime Canine Playgroups all year to raise additional money that goes towards their Walk for the Animals total to help homeless pets! They raised over $11,500 last year! Simply amazing!
I eagerly purchased some dried sweet potato treats and some dehydrated chicken for my dogs. (They LOVE both by the way). I’ll be going back to the Farmers’ Market this Sunday and I can’t wait to stop by their stand again.
The Yappy Pack inspires me so much. If we all did just a little more, think of the impact we can have in the fight to help homeless dogs! Zoey, Leroy & Stella send lots of doggy kisses to this wonderful group of women (and men) who lovingly give of their time and talents to give back to dogs in need.
If you are in the Omaha area, you can attend a Yappytime Canine Playgroup every Saturday from 10:30-12:30pm at Ralston Vet Clinic on 78th and Harrison.
