Wellspring - Ending relationship and sexual abuse in Saratoga County

7th Annual Pooch Parade to Raise Awareness About Domestic Violence

Join us for the 7th Annual Pooch Parade

Presented by:Calling all pooches!!9d27eb95-7130-40c5-97bf-09668b8b2508

Saturday, September 30 in Congress Park, Saratoga Springs
(We Will Gather by the War Memorial)

 Help us raise awareness of the connection between pet and family violence and support Wellspring’s Safe Pet Partnership Program.

The Safe Pet Partnership Program assists victims of relationship abuse who remain in their abusive environments because they don’t want to leave their pets behind. We do this by providing a resource network of  pet “foster homes” for safe, temporary placement while the family transitions to violence-free living. Once that is achieved, the families are reunited with their pets.

Proceeds of the Pooch Parade support the Safe Pet Partnership – providing safe and loving homes for pets of those who need time to heal.
