Main Street Delaware’s First Friday Petwalk In Pictures.

Downtown Delaware, Ohio went to the Dog’s last Friday Night for Main Street Delaware’s Petwalk. The City of Delaware was out with their BIG TRUCKS and cool equipment, and let the kids climb all over. Dog’s EVERYWHERE having a good time sniffing, eating, drinking, and…. well doing what dogs do out doors.

Talking with the Director of Main Street Delaware, Frances Jo Hamilton, they will be closing off parts of Sandusky Street for this event in the future, which seems to work well!

Otterbein University Students Host 5k for K-9 Cancer Run/Walk – Saturday April 26, 2013

Dogs and dog lovers are invited to participate in the family-friendly 5K for K-9 Cancer Run/Walk from 9:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 26, at Otterbein University’s Cross Country course, 350 N. Cleveland Ave. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. and the race starts at 10:30 a.m.  The entry fee is $20 without receiving an event t-shirt or $25 with an event t-shirt. The event is open to the public and all proceeds benefit the MedVet Charitable Foundation.
The 5K for K-9 Cancer Run/Walk is organized by Otterbein students, who hope it will educate and raise awareness for canine cancer in central Ohio. Their goal is to raise at least $10,000, with all of the proceeds earmarked for clinical investigation of the diagnosis and treatment of canine cancer. In addition to the 5K, the event will feature contests, an obstacle course challenge, silent auction, educational materials, informational presentations, exhibitors, and family-friendly activities like inflatable games and paw print art.
The event was inspired by Hilary Seif, a current Otterbein employee and dog owner who lost her golden retriever, Newman, to cancer in the summer of 2013. Canine cancer affects one out of every three dogs; more than half of them will die as a result. Cancer is the leading cause of death in dogs over the age of 10. The warning signs of cancer in dogs are similar to those in people, including lumps or bumps; wounds that don’t heal; any kind of swelling; enlarged lymph nodes; lameness or swelling in the bone; and abnormal bleeding. But sometimes there are little or no signs in the early stages of the disease.

Jet Is Fueled And Ready To Take Off – To A New Home!

Its a bird, its a plane, no its JET!

Who Can Leap Tall Fences In A Single Bound? JET!

Jet is a male Rat Terrier/Pom mix around 2 years old. He LOVES people and belly rubs and is such a joy to be around. He made it to the Highland Shelter because he and chickens do not get along! They had to switch his kennel to one with a top because he can climb a six foot fence! He would do best in a family with lots of love to give and a fenced in yard or someone willing to leash walk to do his business.  To begin the adoption process for Jet, please visit and click “adoption application.”

Jet’s adoption fee is $175 and covers the cost of his neuter, vaccines, preventative medications, microchip and 30 day free trial pet insurance.
