Special Event: Paws for Peace Dog Walk

Paws for Peace

To end the suffering caused by landmines

On Saturday, April 28th, 2007, the Red Cross will be hosting the 5th annual Paws for Peace Dog Walk. This very short walk will be held at Trout Lake's picnic site and will be a family-based event featuring face painting, a dog agility course, and refreshments. The event starts at 10 a.m. Pre-register by emailing paws4peace@redcross.ca.

The Red Cross hosts this event annually to raise awareness abou the humanitarian costs of landmines and to raise funds to help end the suffering they cause. Landmines still contaminate over 80 countries and kill or injure someone every 30 minutes.

Proceeds from this event will support the training of mine detection dogs, who play a crucial role in assisting their human partners. These dogs are specifically trained to sniff out explosives, greatly accelerating the removal process. Partial proceeds will also support landmine victims assistance. At Paw for Peace, dogs will walk together for a better and safer world.

Come and participate so one day no one will have to walk in fear.

If you would like more information, contact Michelle Hassen at 604-709-6653 or email paws4peace@redcross.ca
