Potluck Lunch

Welcome Corgi Lovers!
Everyone is invited to join us for an afternoon of Corgi fun!

We will be meeting Sunday, October 14 at Friends Forever Dog Park in Freeport, Illinois. This 10-acre park includes an agility course, an area just for smaller dogs, and a huge pond. The park is fenced so your dog can run, play, socialize off leash and go for a swim! This park was chosen by Pet Fancy Magazine as one of the top dog parks in the country!

Check it out!

There will be a potluck lunch. Plan to bring something to share with the group. Cook up something delicious or pick up some potato salad, brownies, or picnic food from your favorite grocery. Bring your own drinks and table service (plate, silverware, napkin, etc.). Other items you might want to bring are lawn chairs, coolers, cameras, sunscreen, dog towels, etc.. Don’t forget those lovable Corgis!

To enter the dog park each participant must show a current rabies tag and proof of current vaccinations for each dog. DHLP is required. Bordetella is recommended, but not required. There is a $5 fee per dog for a one day pass. Daily passes are available in the shelter office the day of the picnic. No puppies under the age of 4 months are allowed in the dog park. There is a maximum of 2 dogs per adult. To read more information about the Friends Forever Dog Park rules or to download the form for admittance prior to your visit, go to the following link.
