Doggy Easter Egg Hunt! Wood Dale County Park
April 7 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$5
Let your pooch follow their nose to Wood Dale County Park and join HousePaws and the BooTiki Fund for our 1st Annual Dog-Gone Easter Egg Hunt!
Plastic eggs will be scattered in the fields donning special treats and some eggs will have a note if your dog has won a prize! Adoptable dogs from local rescues will be joining us in hopes of finding a forever home!
All donations from this event will go to the BooTiki fund, a local non profit, that helps pet owners who cannot afford emergency medical care and provides wellness clinics in low income areas where pets are in desperate need.
Two areas will be prepared for small dogs and large dogs….so everyone has an intimidation free egg hunt!!
Feel free to dress your pet in costume!
10:00 am Check in & meet the vendors & rescues!
