Shelter Planning 3rd Annual Dickson Street "Pup" Crawl


On Saturday, April 26, various bars on and around Dickson Street will be hosting a dog party!  The 3rd Annual Dickson Street Pup Crawl is set to take place from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. that day.  "We are so excited to be hosting this event for the third year running," stated Shelter superintendent, Justine Lentz.  "Last year was our biggest year yet and we had about 175 participants and raised just over $3,600," Lentz continued.

All of the money raised goes directly to the Fayetteville Animal Shelter, which adopted out almost 2,500 pets in 2013.  "We are able to save over 90% of the pets that come through our doors each year, but we can’t do that without community support," Lentz said. 

You can pre-register for the event by visiting the online event website:  The $25 pre-registration fee includes a t-shirt for you and a bandana for your dog, as well as access to the all of the participating bars.  The bars include Kingfish, Jose’s, Grub’s, Dickson Street Pub, Speakeasy, Powerhouse, Dickson Street Social Club and Infusion.  Each bar will have one canine themed drink special.  If you wait to register the day of the event, the fee goes up to $35. 

"This is a fun, adult-oriented event.  We encourage people to make a date with their dog and come enjoy the beautiful weather, support local business and help your local animal shelter, all at the same time," Lentz said.
