Introducing... 2016 "Face(s) of Pet Walk" - Casey, Enso & Junior!
PARL’s signature event, The Rescue, was held earlier this year and includes a really special live auction prize called the “Face of Pet Walk”. PARL supporters “bid their tails off” to see their dog on 2016 Pet Walk promotional materials. ...And the winner this year is Nini Silva and her three dogs Casey, Enso & Junior! Unfortunately Casey wasn't feeling well for the photo shoot but we had a blast with Enso and Junior. They were happy to provide us with amazing shots to help promote our fundraising event! Meet the Face(s) of Pet Walk on Saturday! Casey, Enso, Junior and their Mom will be leading the walk!
