Annual festival in support of K9Crusaders will have vendors, bake sale, prizes, canine cuticle care and a doggy Halloween costume contest- plus a pro photographer capturing cute pooch poses.

And… visit with the sanctuary farm animals on site and take in the beautiful fall colours.

Dog nail trims and Puppaccinos available with all funds donated to the rescue. Well behaved, leashed dogs are welcome.

Saturday October 14, 11am to 4pm. Rain or shine.

Go to: Walnut Grove Daycare, Boarding and Spaw, 693 Pinewood School Road, Castleton. Free parking available on site.

So much to see and do at this beautiful country location just outside Castleton.

Just Bee-lieve Apiaries will be on hand selling locally produced honey (their beehives are actually located right at the host site!).

Sweet Pea for K9C is the brainchild of a hand knitter and long time doggy foster mum who donates 100% the sales from her one of a kind handknits back to the rescue.

Indulge in some candy treats courtesy of Mr D’s Sweets and treat yourself to fresh produce and canning courtesy of Castle Farms.

K9Crusaders volunteers will be serving up their ever popular Puppaccinos. Other treats for pet parents include home baking by dedicated volunteers, as well as hot apple cider.

Katrina, owner of Kat’s in the Doghouse Pet Grooming in Port Hope is generously offering her time to do nail trims for your pup. 100% of the $10 fee will be donated to the rescue.

“We are so pleased to be bringing dog lovers from near and far this annual Fall Festival, yet again hosted by our wonderful partner, Walnut Grove,” says Events Coordinator, Helen Firing.
“Because we are a one hundred percent volunteer run organization, we rely heavily on events such as this and our Holiday Market event in November to raise funds to support the care of
our rescued dogs while they wait to find their forever homes. Our thanks to all the vendors who are joining us, and who have generously donated prizes for the event.”

Anna Goloshapov, owner of host venue Walnut Grove Daycare, Boarding and Spaw says “Walnut Grove is so excited to host this fun family event for the 5th year for such a deserving
rescue and the dogs in their care!”

“Once again, we are looking forward to our gorgeous fall event surrounded by the beautiful colours of the season, wonderful friends, and amazing animals,” says Jodi Lane, K9Crusaders’
founder, “Hope to see you there!”
