We are all VERY busy getting things in order for the December 12, 2009 Adoption Fair and Fundraiser and wanted to give everyone an update on what you can expect when you come out to visit us.

Calendars - will be available that day for purchase. If you sent in a picture of your PDCR adopted dog and are wondering if it made the cut, guess what?!! They all did! We really couldn't decide on one or two, or even three pictures per month, so instead we made a collage of all the pictures, there were 78 of them, and it looks great! Come and get them while you can!

Dog & Cats for Adoption - several local rescues will be joining us for the day and you will get to meet alot of fantastic dogs & some cats eagerly awaiting homes of their own. We here at PDCR have five new dogs that have come in just this week, more might be joining us in the next week as well. A sneak preview of these dogs will be posted in the next day or two. There will be a full house at the fair.

Bake Sale - Santa's elves are busy at work preparing lots of baked goodies for purchase that day. If you are interested in adding to the goodies that will be available that day, we ask that you make sure to have labels on those items which include a list of the ingredients so we avoid any allergy flareups! Pricing for the items will be done at the fair.

Exhibitors - We currently have several tables booked for the day including crafts for sale, a local pet photographer, RedLine Dog Sports, a local homemade soap company and some cute ponies to name a few. If you are a crafty person and would like to showcase your items, more tables are available, email us so we can put your name on a table too.

Face Painting - We are really hoping to have someone volunteer to do some face painting on the kids that come to the fair. There is lots of baking talent in our group, but not anyone that feels brave enough to try painting faces. If you have such talent and would like to come out for the day, please let us know. There will be some tasty baked goods in it for you :)

Hot Beverages - some hot beverages courtesy of Express Coffee. The show will go on even if its a bit brisk outside. Come for a coffee and cookies.

Raffle Table - Oh my goodness people! We have some awesome prizes to be won. We have got the support of some great businesses here in Lethbridge, and some from Taber. We have some pet products being donated from local pet stores and vet clinics, some pizza gift certificates, a golf bag from Servus Credit Union, Movie coupons for Cineplex, gift certificate from Carefree Lighting, spa and salon gift certificates and many more.

Please come out to support our day, even if you aren't interested in adopting a dog, there will be lots to do that will in many ways help a dog find a new home.
