Dearborn Animal Shelter’s ‘Must Love Dogs Singles Event’ Sept. 24

Sunday, September 13th, 2009

If you were planning to take part in the Friends for the Dearborn Animal Shelter’s 5K for K9s walk/run on Sept. 20 you’ll have until May 2010 to get into shape.

The Dearborn Animal Shelter and GoodBoy Events have cancelled the Sept. 20 event and have now decided to hold the run next May in conjunction with the Mutt Strut, which will celebrate its fifth year in 2010.

The good news is the Dearborn Animal Shelter will be holding another event on Sept. 24 called what “Must Love Dogs Singles Event.”

This event takes place at the Buffalo Wild Wings on Michigan Avenue in Dearborn from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.  Cost is $20 and includes appetizers, nonalcoholic beverages and a chance to win a date for two at Buffalo Wild Wings. All proceeds will benefit the Dearborn Animal Shelter.

To register, visit www.DearbornAnimals.org  or call 313-943-2697. The event is limited to 40 singles (21 and over) and their dogs.

Kelle S. Sisung, development director, Friends for the Dearborn Animal Shelter, says the event is part of the Dearborn Animal Shelter’s “Dog Nights in Dearborn.”

“Kiernan’s Steak House launched Dog Nights in August and the event brought almost 200 people (and some pooches) to their Silky’s patio and they raised $5,300 for our shelter,” Sisung said. “It was great to see so many people out and about on Michigan Avenue. Buffalo Wild Wings is now generously opening their patio for singles and their pooches.

“Dog Night is part of the nonprofit’s continued attempt to infuse some energy into our downtown business district, which so desperately needs,” Sisung said.
