2013 Boxer Meetup & Bottle Drive

What a fabulous turnout for Saturday's Boxer Meetup!!  We had about 30 Boxers come out for the event throughout the day. It was perfect weather, as it wasn't too hot or too cool.  And the rain stayed away!

It was wonderful to see all the familiar faces and the new ones as well. All those wiggle butts were well behaved and seemed to understand the nature of the meeting.  Lots of kisses and so much fun was had by all!

Thank you to everyone who donated to the Bottle Drive to help with the medical bills for Pearl & Tripp.  It truly is amazing to see the generosity and kindness that everyone has in their hearts.

Tripp and Pearl are both doing very well.  Everyone got to see firsthand exactly how well they are doing!  The kids made sure that tons of kisses were given to everyone.  They are forever grateful to you for enabling WBBR to help them. 
A BIG Thank you to all the volunteers who assisted with this event.  Many volunteers spent the weeks leading up to the event, by driving to pickup donated empties and returning them to the depot.  The biggest haul of course was on Saturday.  It filled the U-Haul truck completely!!   We are still tallying up all the donations and the bottles, as you can well imagine it will take some time to sort thru it all!  But we will keep you posted.  We are estimating the donations to be close to $2000. 
We are hoping to do another fundraiser next month.  And of course our Annual Pub Night is set for Sunday, August 25th.  So mark your calendars!!!
Here are some pics from the Boxer Meetup.  To see more pictures please visit the WBBR Facebook group .
Thanks again everyone for your continued love and support.  It's because of you that we are able to help so many dogs in need!
