Known throughout the region for their hard work and dedication to helping dogs and cats in need, AC PAW will celebrate a major milestone, their 20th birthday, on June 21st from 10 am to 4 pm with a big Birthday Bash at Timber Ridge RV and Recreation Resort in Traverse City.
This would be a great event to take your dad to on Fathers Day this year especially with the car show going on! And what a great weekend to drive up to Traverse City and spend the weekend at the Timber Ridge RV and Recreation Resort.
This event is a family friendly affair, with live music including the Accidentals, food (BBQ lunch cook off!), family games, dog agility and flyball show, a $20 micro-chip clinic, classic car show, 5k run/walk, and a craft and vendor marketplace.
In addition, AC PAW is encouraging all past adopters to join them for a “family reunion” for those who previously adopted a pet from AC PAW, with a giant “family photo” to be taken at 11:30. Of course the event wouldn’t be complete without pet adoptions. Many Northern Michigan rescues will be in attendance, with everything from dogs and cats, to horses. It promises to be an amazing day.
Scheduling so far includes the following:
• Classic Car Show 10 am to 3 pm
Guest will be voting on the awards for fan favorite, best in show and best car & pet duo. Registration deadline June 10th. Contact Patti Clouse for more info. at 231-409-4491 or email her at email@example.com
• Run 4 Rescue Check in at 10 am – Race at 10:30 am

All family reunion attendees will receive a special AC PAW gift. Please sign up ahead of time – contact Heather Johnson at email@example.com.
