On Monday, August 14 and Thursday, August 17, the Alliance together with the City of St. Charles Parks & Recreation, hosted our annual "Pool Paws for Humane Laws", an event that definitely puts the "FUN" into "FUNDRAISER"! (Half of proceeds go to the Alliance).
Seems that no matter what might be happening in our personal lives, seeing a dog cavorting and romping, running and splashing with abandon, helps to elevate our hearts and spirits. The unfettered joy that a dog communicates and shares so generously with us is an experience of the purest kind.
It's a gift.
Here are some photos from our end-of-the-summer pool party, first of three (McNair Park Pool in St. Charles, Kirkwood Pool in Kirkwood, and Alligator's Creek Aquatic Center in O'Fallon) - with more to come!
