Easter puppy is coming to town
THE Easter bunny will be leaving special little treasures for the Mareeba Animal Refuge this Easter Sunday for families to hunt down all whilst raising much-needed funds for the local animal shelter.
From 9am, participants will be given a rescue pup guide and clues to take them to the treasures hidden amongst the walk-ing paths.
Whilst bonding with their rescue dog guide, families will also benefit from bonding with each other and experiencing the great outdoors.
“The morning will be a scavenger/treasure hunt along our walking trails, encouraging families to spend time together and in the great outdoors,” refuge staff member Felicity Pollard said.
“One of our rescue pups will be offered to ‘assist’ them on their adventure. Upon completion of the track, a prize basket will be presented with goodies for the whole family to enjoy.”
Kobe (pictured), is the refuge’s longest term resident and is looking forward to guiding participants through the challenge.
He also looking for his “furever” home. Meet Kobe at 35 Hicking Avenue any day of the week.
It is $25 per family to participate with all funds raised going straight back into the animals being sheltered in their facility.
Bookings are essential and a parent/guardian must be with children at all times. Call 4092 3060 to register or for more information.
