Wigglebutt Walk 2009
Photo Gallery


Our Sixth Annual Wigglebutt Walk was held on September 12th at Brighton Dale Park in Kansasville, WI. It was a huge success thanks to your support!! 162 Cockers were registered from 5 States -- Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota, Indiana and New Mexico. They walked with their families to raise money for Shorewood Cocker Rescue, Wisconsin Cocker Rescue and Illinois Cocker Rescue. The weather was absolutely perfect and mosquitos were not an issue this year, so we were once again able to walk in the beautiful wooded area of the Park. The day's activities featured the Wigglebutt Walk. What a truly awesome sight to see so many Cockers of all colors doing their part to help other Cockers in Rescue. Other Activities included a huge Silent Auction, Raffles, Natural Instinct Testing, Lure Coursing, Contests for your Cockers, Refreshments and a Bake Sale. The Picture People were there offering professional photos of your dogs or the entire family. Air Play DJ Service was back this year providing awesome music for our event. Many of our Adoptables attended the event as well. I'm so happy to say that Daisy091 found her forever home at this year's walk.

Itís always such a pleasure to see so many of former fosters again and to see just how fabulously they are doing in their forever homes. Itís just as wonderful to be able to talk to their families who dearly love them.

We sincerely want to thank everyone who attended this event and made this such a wonderful day for us all! We want to extend a very special Thank You to so many Family Members and wonderful Friends of some of our Volunteers who consistently pitch right and do so much to help make our Big Day such a Success! Thank You John and Angela Mertens, Susan Borezinski, Elizabeth Schuette, Deb Acerbi, Donna Rush, Jeanette Meizner, Leon Kristal, Danielle Graf, Vince, neighbor to Donna Pfingsten, our treasurer, who was there again this year and did so much to help us all out. Donna's mom and dad, Lina and Dick Sytsma, were also there helping out in the food area again this year. This year, we had a special treat -- Tom Maugher was there making crepes.

The Park furnishes the beautiful setting for our event, the shelter and picnic tables. Everything else that we need for the day's events has to be brought in by our Volunteers. This year a number of volunteers and friends of volunteers arrived at the Park by 6:00 a.m. to start setting up snow fencing; setting up canopies; rearranging tables in the shelter for the food area and bake sale; setting up tables and preparing the area for the silent auction; starting grills and getting food cooking; etc. As other volunteers rolled in, they joined the others already there getting things set up and ready to go. A huge THANK YOU and job very well done to all of our Volunteers who put so much into making this such a Awesome Event! All of your efforts are noticed and so very much appreciated!

Wigglebutt Walk 2009 is now just a wonderful memory and weíre already looking forward to Wigglebutt Walk 2010! Hope to see you all there!!

Wigglebutt Walk 2010 will be held on September 11th, so mark your calendars!

This is what the Wigglebutt Walk is all about. Raising much needed funds to help the dogs we currently have in our program and all those who depend upon us and will come in the Future.
