Hundreds of animal lovers helped raise $50,000 to help with medical, behavioral and life-saving care for homeless pets.
Dogs dressed in their best and most creative costumes were a highlight of the second Toby's Pet Parade and Fair on Sept. 16 at Parfet Park in Golden. Proceeds benefited the Foothills Animal Shelter.
Prizes were awarded for best group and most original costumes, and guests enjoyed food trucks, a beer garden, live music, dog demonstrations, family activities and vendors.
“We are thrilled with the success of the second annual Toby's Pet Parade & Fair,” said Richard Eveleight, executive director of the animal shelter. “The support from our community is overwhelming, and it's only because of this support that we are able to care for more than 9,200 animals every year.”
Toby, an 11-year-old Australian shepherd, was found running the streets of Westminster with his mouth taped shut with electrical tape. Toby was brought to Foothills Animal Shelter for care and recovery. Despite being a victim of abuse, Toby's good-natured, loving spirit never waned and he was eventually made the official mascot of Foothills Animal Shelter. To honor Toby, the shelter created the community event to raise the critical funds needed to support and care for homeless pets like him.
