Who’s on the cover?


2016 Cover

Did you know that all dogs entered in the contest are in the calendar? Another fact: Dublin’s photo was the first one entered in the contest!

Dublin’s owner picked up her copy of the calendar at our Halloween photo event. Her calendar was free since Dublin is our 2016 Cover Dog, but everyone else will pay $10 per calendar.

The calendars are now available elsewhere. You can buy your calendar at one of the following locations in Federal Way.

  • Mud Bay   -  1706 S 320th St
  • Splish-Splash Doggy Bath  -  1606 SW Dash Point Rd
  • Lucky Paws Pet Salon  -  4618 SW 320th St
  • Sacajawea Health Care for Pets  -  1530 S Dash Point Rd
  • Simply Paws  -  35419 21st Ave SW
  • Poverty Bay  -  1108 S 322nd Pl

Everyone can use a calendar and they make great gifts!

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!

Santa Paws Volunteer Opportunities

  • Have you ever wanted to be Santa? We’ve got a suit and will provide a beard for you!
  • Just want to be an Elf? There are several opportunities for you. Help Santa and the pets pose for the photos. Greet customers, answer questions, and get information for their photo. Be a general helper and help where needed.
  • Are you an experienced photographer? Put your skills to work at this event!
  • Are you a computer person with experience working with photo printing? Crop, edit, and print the photos.

There will be two 3½ hour shifts per day. Your best buddy will appreciate that you did this on his/her behalf!

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.
