Fall Four-footed Frolic

12 10 2010

The Frolic Inn, formerly Vinroc Kennels, invites dogs and their families to the Fall Four-footed Frolic charity event on Saturday, October 23 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. It’ll be a day of fun for the whole family!

Admission to the event is $5 per family or one bag of pet food (any size) to support Stray Rescue, Dent County Animal Welfare Society (DCAWS) and Canines in Crisis Inc. Events include hayrides, face painting, behavior demonstrations, bobbing for hot dogs (for dogs only), and pictures with your dog. Y-98 radio personality, Paul Cook, will kick off the event from 10 a.m. to noon and the doggy costume contest will start at 2 p.m. Rescue dogs will also be on-site, ready to shake paws, lick faces and sniff out good prospects for a new adoptive home.

The Fall Four-footed Frolic also marks the reopening of Vinroc Kennels as The Frolic Inn. Over the past three years, the facility has expanded to include nature trails, animal daycare, a Japanese garden, an off-leash dog park, and now a new name and mission: Giving the dogs entrusted to us the best quality care possible when they are with us, so that we can not only better their lives, but also better the lives of all animals.

The Frolic Inn is located at 16932 Rodgers Ave. in Wildwood, Missouri. If you would like more information about the event, please refer to the poster below, visit www.frolic-inn.com or call (636) 458-3090.

Come join us on Saturday, October 23, rain or shine!

I hope this event went well. My family miss out. We had a 5k in the morning and the day got away from us! I’m very happy you got to put the flyers in the Friday Folders at Pond. I’m wondering if you allow volunteer opportunities. I have 9 and 7 year old boys who would be happy to come by some time and perform dog walking and other activities (with any necessary training). I’m just very happy about your improvements (love the new website) and am excited about my two dogs’ upcoming stay. There is always room for the big chains…the Starbucks and Walgreens in our developing community…but we just have to show support for the local businesses, especially those that do more than just business…they provide outreach on another level. I enjoyed a lengthy phone conversation with you and you gained my support!!

Karen,
I hope the 5k run went well for you. Kristen’s Father, who lives in Toronto, happens to be the fastest man in the World, over 65. When he comes to visit he knocks out 10 – 15 miles every morning, regardless of weather. I think the running keeps his mind at ease and his daughter gets the same balance from working the dog park.

Thank you for believing in all the changes we’ve made out here. I too feel that this is the time for communities to support more local family business, especially when it’s proven time and again that the energy and proceeds of local business goes right back into the community they reside in. Work from the ground up, rather than top down.
We always welcome volunteers, but I do like to see the kids a little bit older, just from the sheer safety aspect of working with dogs. We have a lot of really large rescues here that can overwhelm even us veterans. However, let us talk about it further and see what we can come up with for the little ones. Learning how to become an active volunteer and helping those in need, 2 legged or 4 legged, is so important at an early age.

I look forward to meeting Tabasco, Mulligan and yourself today and can’t wait to talk to you in more detail.

Have a happy dog day,
John Madlinger
