For the past 14 years, thanks to the Douglas County community and participants like you, the Dumb Friends League Buddy Center in Castle Rock has been the recipient of Wag `n Trail proceeds, and we are so grateful for your continued support over the years. Hosting a well-rounded event that draws crowds, maintains interest and is financially successful is essential to making a fundraiser viable.
One of our core values is being good stewards of our resources. We take this seriously, and it has led us to the understanding that the Wag `n Trail does not raise enough money to support the Buddy Center to justify the cost to execute the event. Thus, Wag `n Trail has been retired as a Dumb Friends League event.
Our team is busy designing an ongoing event in Castle Rock to raise much needed support for the Buddy Center. While the next signature event will take a year to plan, please support the thousands of animals served by the Buddy Center at the Bone Appétit Give Back Day. On October 17, you can raise funds simply by eating or celebrating at our first ever community-wide restaurant and brewery fundraiser. In the meantime, lace up your sneakers, fetch your four-legged companion and head out to Washington Park on May 4 for the 26th annual Furry Scurry. Learn more and register at furryscurry.org.
Thank you again for your Wag `n Trail support. We look forward to seeing you at future events! Be sure to check out ddfl.org/events for upcoming happenings!
