November Social Event and Volunteer Meeting

Please join us for a social event on Saturday, November 14 at 2 p.m. We will be holding it at Godfather’s Pizza, 2301 SW 336th St., Federal Way and providing pizza and soda. Meet our board of directors and learn more about us!

One of the goals of Park Pals is working on improvements and maintenance of French Lake Off-leash Dog Park. Our organization is a non-profit and relies on volunteers to accomplish our goals. If you are interested in being a volunteer, learn more about us.

Our biggest fund raising event, Santa Paws, is held in December. Park Pals will be doing a Santa photo shoot at Petco every Saturday and Sunday until Christmas. This is not only our most profitable event, it’s one of the most enjoyable! We get to meet lots of great pets and their owners when they get photos taken. The tail wagging and smiles are contagious!

Calendars and Photos on Halloween

This Saturday, HALLOWEEN, the Cover dog of the 2016 Park Pals Calendar will be revealed at Mud Bay! The cover winner will get a free calendar, but the rest of us will have to pay $10 per copy. All the dogs that were in the contest will be in the calendar.

Want to get a Halloween photo of you and/or your pet? You’ll get a 4×6 photo for $10. Costumes are optional, but we’ll have some Halloween scarves on hand so you can “dress up” your dog.

Our volunteers will be there from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. to take photos and sell calendars. The good folks at Mud Bay will be serving refreshments then and will be selling the calendars after Halloween. Come on down to Mud Bay, 1706 320th St. in Federal Way, and join the fun!

Regis and Kelly visited Mud Bay in 2014 for their Halloween phot.
