COUPEVILLE, WA–Raise hope and funds at this year’s Wag ‘n’ Walk! Founded in 1990, WAIF is hosting its annual Wag ‘n’ Walk celebration of pets on Sunday, August 19th. New this year is a 5K Run and 1K Walk taking place from 10am-3pm at beautiful Greenbank Farm. The run/walk will start at 10am with the free festival fun taking place from 11am-3pm.

 

Anyone who is animal lover, walker, or a runner is encouraged to sign-up to help fundraise for Whidbey’s homeless cats and dogs. Proceeds raised will help provide compassionate care for shelter animals while they wait for their forever homes. Participants can register as individuals or as a team and compete against each other to see who raises the most for homeless pets! It’s $35 to register for the timed 5K Run and $25 for 1K Walk. Each paid registrant will receive a commemorative t-shirt showing their support and love for animals who deserve second chances for loving homes.

 

Many non-profit and pet rescue groups will be represented at the festival, along with many local vendors selling tempting things to buy and eat. Lots of fun activities too for dogs and families to participate in like bobbing for hot dogs, egg relay, ice cream eating contest, music, face painting. We’ll have vendors for the owners too with great food with a beer & wine garden.

 

Wag ‘n’ Walk is a joyous celebration of the rescue efforts of all adopters and supporters, and also an opportunity to share how one can make a difference of giving homeless dogs and cats a second chance. Join your community and register today at www.wagnwalk.org. To learn more, contact Cinnamon Hudgins at waifcomm@waifanimals.org.

I’ve always loved to fly. I grew up in a family of pilots – my dad was a bush pilot in Alaska and his brother, my uncle Don, retired as a 747 pilot. They built kit planes growing up, and I inherited that same fascination with flying.

EXCITING NEWS – The Slow Food USA Ark of Taste has added another one of Whidbey Island’s treasures to their stock of seeds.  The Rockwell Beans have now officially been added and can be found on the Ark of Taste page of Slow Food USA.  The Rockwell Bean is currently grown by only four farmers, who are the descendents of Ebey's Prairie pioneer families: Georgie Smith of Willowood Farm, Wilbur Purdue of Prairie Bottom Farm, Wilbur Bishop of Ebey Road Farm, and Vin Sherman.

Winter is just around the corner, and it’s time to think about cold weather safety; specifically hypothermia. Hypothermia is a dangerous drop in body temperature, usually caused by prolonged exposure to cold temperatures.
