2016 Wagswalk Proceeds Recipients
Thank you to all the walkers, sponsors and donators.
We had another successful walk this year.
Lebanon County Kennel Club Wagswalk
The LCKC Wagswalk is a fundraiser that benefits local K-9 organizations. The walk is sponsored by LCKC and local businesses (see below) — proceeds will benefit the following organizations:
- Lebanon City Police K-9 Fund, which will help raise money for the purchase, training, and maintenance of the police K-9.
- Dog T.A.G.S. (Train Assist Guide Serve), which is a non-profit organization and a service dog owner training program for veterans suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) and/or MST (Military Sexual Trauma). The veteran trains his/her personal dog with the help of experienced dog trainers.
26th ANNUAL WAGSWALK SPONSORS

.LCKC teamed up with the Harrisburg Kennel Club for a “Hug-a-Dog” booth at the Women’s Expo on October 5, 2019 and we were a huge success!. We were promoting awareness and requesting donations for the Purple Leash effort. The Purple Leash project is a partnership between Red Rover and Purina to help keep domestic abuse victims and their pets together. Their mission is to increase the number of pet-friendly domestic violence shelters across the country because…
•70% of domestic violence victims have pets •71% of domestic violence victims report abuser threatened, injured or killed pets •48% of domestic violence victims delay leaving out of concern for their pets •10% of domestic violence shelters have the ability to take pets
Hundreds of people came into the booth to pet our dogs and share their stories of their pets. Many commented that we were the best exhibit (and the most fun!). Even cat owners got into the ring for a hug or two.
THANK YOU everyone who stopped by and donated to the Purple Leash. We raised $ 543 for this worthwhile cause and we had a great time meeting so many people who shared our love of dogs and understood the problems facing domestic violence victims and their pets.

LCKC supported Pet Valu's "Thanks for Giving" campaign to raise money for local shelter pets on Saturday, November 9, 2019.
Canine customers only needed to perform 3 tricks for LCKC to sponsor a donation. In spite of all the distractions in the store some of our canine friends pulled it off with flying colors and perhaps a little coaxing with liver treats!
John Rebord with Sophie and Missy with Tioga were just two participants.
Thank you all for helping our homeless pets!
