January 2017 – Great Lakes Pet Expo
The 2017 Great Lakes Pet Expo will be held in January at the State Fair Park in Milwaukee Wisconsin If you are looking to immerse yourself in everything PETS, this is for you! Vendors from across the midwest will be there with everything from gourmet chew bones to doggie water purification systems. The Expo is a family friendly event put on by the Alliance of Wisconsin Animal Rehoming Efforts (AWARE).
Stop by our booth to play Pick-a-Duck for a chance at some great prizes. Every duck is a winner!
The Great Lakes Pet Expo is a chance to meet many of the state’s shelter and rescue organizations and their adoptable pets. Bring the whole family for a day of fun. There are also excellent seminars and demonstrations throughout the day. Mark your calendars and have an enjoyable Family Day!
March 28, 2015 – Blue’s Blues and BBQs
Join us on Saturday March 28 at the Oxford VFW, across from Eyes of Hope between 6 pm and 10 pm. In memory of our buddy Blue, King of the Lobby, who we lost to cancer in July 2014, the Greg Schick Band will be playing the blues and BBQ sandwiches provided by Captain Jack’s BBQ will be available for sale. There will also be a silent auction. Hope to see you there for a night of fun to benefit our pups.
If anyone would like to contribute items for the auction, they can drop them off at Eyes of Hope Shelter by Wednesday March 26th. Thank you for your support.
Join us the third Saturday of October for our Eyes of Hope Dogtoberfest. We will be woofing it up inside and out. There will be food, fun, games and CRITTERrrr MAN will be here for the young and the young at heart! The event is open to the public with a special invitation to our formerly adopted dogs with their new families. A donated pet food item for the area food pantry gets the donor a free beverage to boot!
Dogtoberfest 2011 was a fun-filled day. The air was crisp, the coffee was hot and the hot dogs and BBQ were oh so tasty. CRITTERrrr MAN entertained, educated and painted paw prints on any willing faces or hands, carnival games (even the tennis-ball bob for the dogs) were a hit with all, and our own Oxford Volunteer Fire Department volunteers were there to give the kids a first-hand look at their firefighting vehicles.
Dogtoberfest will be more exciting with the addition of vendor booths too! If you are a vendor and would like to place a booth at our next Dogtoberfest, contact Kris at (608) 547-5448, or email Kris
