SMOOCHES & POOCHES BOWL-A-THON

Secondhand Mutts is teaming up with the Friends of the Cleveland Kennel valentine’s style at Madison Square Lanes in Lakewood for a Bowl-A-Thon. We will have two start times for bowling: 7:30 PM and 9:30 PM and hope you can put together teams of 4-6 people or come as you are, bring a friend and meet up with animal friends. We will put a team together for you. We will also have plenty of raffle baskets to raffle off.
This event starts at 7 PM and we’ve got the lanes until 11 PM. This is not a dog-friendly event, please leave your pooch at home. $20 per person ticket price includes 3 games and shoe rental, pizza and snacks. A full bar and snack bar is availble on site.
This is a CASH ONLY ESTABLISHMENT.
Sunday, February 6
“As promoted by Subaru, the Lakewood Dog Park would like to join in the festivities of exercising our dogs on Superbowl Sunday. Let’s get out in the fresh air and allow our four-legged friends to play prior to the start of the big football game. Many of our pooches do not visit the park as often in the winter, and this would be a great way to keep them socialized and to reconnect with your two-legged friends, as well. While the park will be open during normal hours, we hope to increase our attendance between the hours of 10am and 1pm on Sunday, February 6. In addition to the fellow dog park attendees, a representative from Ganley Subaru will be at the park during these hours, and would be happy to discuss Subaru’s involvement with local dog charities. We hope to see as many dogs (and people) as possible!”
Portaits by Martha will be on site to capture a loving moment between you and your pet. Appointments are available on the 1/2 hour starting at 9 AM. Please call 216-621-6888 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. A portion of the proceeds will go directly to Secondhand Mutts and The Friends of the Cleveland Kennel. Two 5×7′s for $15 and other items available to choose from too.
