Rufus Says “Dog Jog is for Dogs!”

Dearest Calgary Humane Society Supporters,

Late in the day on June 10, 2015, Team Rufus was alerted that one Mr. Gary Van Meowski engaged in the spreading of false information related to our upcoming Dog Jog event.

Those of us on Team Rufus would like to respond to this by letting all of our faithful supporters know that at no point has the renaming of Dog Jog 2015 been discussed. At this time, the name of Dog Jog and the role of Spokesdogs within the event are secure.

Calgary Humane Society notes that Dog Jog has a special historical significance for the organization. Having evolved out of the “Great Calgary Pet Party”, Dog Jog has been a signature event for Calgary Humane Society for more than a decade. Today, Dog Jog is one of the most significant fundraising events at Calgary Humane Society, bringing people and pets together to create second chances and brighter futures for Calgary’s animals in need.

Again, we would like to reiterate to all of our generous supporters that Dog Jog 2015 is a GO for this Sunday, June 14th, 2015 at South Glenmore Park. We look forward to seeing all of our incredible teammates on the big day for some fun, festivities and fundraising.
