Bring your dog to Whisker Walk on Sept. 27
● By Lev
Oxford Feed & Lumber’s Annual Whisker Walk is a benefit for local pet rescues.
Whisker Walk, the annual dog walk through Oxford sponsored by Oxford Feed & Lumber, will be held Sept. 27.
The event benefits local pet rescues. The walk is a leisurely one-mile loop, beginning and ending at Oxford Feed & Lumber. Departure time is 9 a.m., and participants are asked to arrive by 8:30 if not pre-registered. With the $15 donation fee, participants receive a T-shirt and doggie goodie bag.
All non-sale pet-related items will be 15 percent off at the store. Several local pet rescues will be on-site with adoptable pets. There will be discounted microchipping, nail trims, pet obstacle courses, and pet yogurt. PAWS Training Center and Chester County Police K9 Unit will perform demonstrations.
The doggie costume contest features a traditional Halloween class (costumes are available at the store) and an owner/dog lookalike class. Gift card prizes will be awarded in both classes.
