Our friends at Good Dog University and K-9 Daycare hosted their fifth annual Wag-a-thon fundraiser to benefit Deaf Dogs Rock so we can continue to sponsor deaf dogs out of kill shelters into the loving arms of rescue. We are so blessed to have supporters in the Northeast to help us continue to help deaf dog in need.
Every June the patrons and team members at Good Dog University organize a Wag-a-thon. I bet you all are wondering what a Wag-a-thon is. A Wag-a-thon is when a dog participates in a tail wagging competition. Each person who participates with their dog tries to get his/her dog to wag their tail as many times as they can in one minute time period. Every dog is timed by a stop watch with a couple of spotters counting each wag. Each human participant agrees to pay so much money for each wag (could be quarter a wag, fifty cents a wag or even a dollar a wag) prior to the competition starting.
The fifth annual Good Dog University Wag-a-thon was a huge success with GDU raising just over $1500 so Deaf Dogs Rock can continue to sponsor deaf dogs out of kill shelters into the safe arms or rescue. With the Pandemic going on this is a huge gift so we can continue to help deaf dogs in need.
