An event to benefit the Sebastian County Humane Society

As a business, one of our favorite things to do, is a good community project. It’s fun to work together and try to do some good for our community and we always have a great time. Planning an event is exciting, time-consuming and ultimately exhausting. But exhausting in a good way! Its wonderful to be able to sit down at the end of the day and know you’ve accomplished something big.

So when Marc Sparks approached us to be involved in Fort Smith’s first annual Paws in the Park event to benefit the Sebastian County Humane Society, we didn’t even need to think twice before we said YES! We will be there tomorrow doing temporary
airbrush tattoos for dogs as well as feather extensions. They’re a fun, temporary way to decorate your dog for the party! $5 donation for each and 100% of the money goes to the SCHS!

We’ve been meeting and planning for months and finally tomorrow, July 15, is the big day!

I know you’re super excited to know what all we have planned for the day - prepare to be amazed!

The day will kick off with a dog walk around Ben Geren Park - you can print out your registration and bring it to the event tomorrow - and the rest of the day will be filled with a ton of family friendly activities.

Check out the agenda!
