Event raises money for animal shelter

Posted

People from near and far traveled to the Glendale Farm Open Space in Douglas County on Sept. 22 to hike with their dogs, enjoy rolling views of the Front Range and raise money for the Dumb Friends League Buddy Center.

The Wag `n Trail annual event took over the Glendale Farm Open Space offering attendees a 1.6-mile hike, craft beers to refresh after and food for owners and pets alike.

Registration fees and donations collected through the event benefit the Buddy Center, a full-service animal shelter located in Castle Rock. The Buddy Center offers medical care, training services, foster care and pet adoptions in the county.

Curtis and Donna Hopehill traveled from Loveland to participate, carrying a photo of their dog Rossco, who died of cancer but loved coming, they said. They took with them this year their two new rescues, Maliwan, a German shepherd mix, and Luna, a Great Dane.

“I've been coming since 2008,” said Donna, who used to live in Castle Rock. Hopehill said they love supporting the Dumb Friends League and honoring Rossco's memory. “This was just his ultimate favorite event.”
