Kismutt Dog Walk

This coming Saturday May 14th will be the first Kismutt Dog Rescue fundraiser. Come and walk your dog(s) at the picturesque Milt Dunnell Fields and help Kismutt in its mission to give dogs a new life filled with love.

A message from Kimberly Thomas, owner and operator of Kismutt:
Dear Friends of Kismutt Dog Rescue:

Since 2005, Kismutt Rescue has adopted out just over 1200 puppy mill dogs into wonderful homes! Each one of you that have adopted a puppy mill dog, I thank you deeply.

For the first time, Kismutt Dog Rescue is reaching out and doing a fundraiser to help cover the costs of saving these precious dogs. Last year we spent just over $27,700.00 on vetting these dogs.

Two St. Mary's High School girls, Crystal Oliver and Christina Partridge, have decided to do a "Walk in the Park" fundraiser for Kismutt Rescue! I really hope you can join us at "The Flats" in St. Marys, Ontario on Saturday May 14th at 9:30 am. Please bring your rescue dog (and other dogs you may have) and enjoy a very scenic walk followed by a Pet Show! "The Flats", or otherwise called "Dunny's Field", is a very beautiful park along the river, so bring a picnic lunch and enjoy with the whole family! For those of you that have GPS, the address is: 120 Parkview Drive St. Marys, ON N4X 1A8

I really hope that you can attend because it will be AMAZING to see all these furry four-legged friends that I have adopted out over the years. It will be a great socialization time too, to speak with other rescue families and see their dogs. What I am most looking forward to, is seeing how these puppy mill dogs have blossomed from lost timid souls into happy, healthy, out-going, and vibrant doggies!

If you are unable to attend, you can still send in your pledge forms and make the cheque payable to "Kismutt". Please mail to Kismutt Dog Rescue, R.R. # 4 - 882702 Rd. 88 St. Marys, ON N4X 1C7.

There will be some great prizes to be won at the pet show that will be held at 2:00 p.m. sharp! Three judges will be judging:

Smallest Dog
Largest Dog
Best Trick
Shortest Coat
Longest Coat
Best Wagging Tail
Most Unique Breed
Cutest Dog
Ugliest Dog
Most Unique Color
Best Look-a-like (with owner)
Most Obedient (sit, stay, down)
Least Obedient
Best Vocal Performance
People's Choice

Please don't forget to watch the video and I hope to see you all on Saturday May 14th 9:30 am!!

Good luck with this cause. My bother has owned three dogs that have all been rescued from abusive beginnings, an all too common circumstance. All three turned out to be dear pets, much loved.

Thank you so much Mark. So good to hear.

I think it is so wonderful that so many people,like you,love animals and work so hard for there well being. My Sissy Dog was found in the street and she is the bestest little girl ever. Thanks for you effort and thanks for stopping by. Richard at My Old Historic House

What a fun way to help out a great cause! I hope they get a large turnout. All dogs (and cats!) deserve to be placed in loving homes.

Dear Anyes,
First thank you for stopping by, its been a long time since I've posted anything so its nice to see familiar faces.
Second and most importantly, thank you from the bottom of my heart for bringing this cause forward. I for one can't think of anything I loathe more than a puppy mill just so someone can have a "designer dog"!
You are an Angel for being a part of this!

Our little Cheech is a rescued dog. Someone just left him on the step of the SPCA.

I hate to think of all the dogs kept for the purposes of producing puppies. I wish your community all the best with this cause. :)

Richard, Pam, Terry,
I take a lot of pleasure in fostering these dogs, but sadly there's no end in sight because of the legality of puppy mills. Hope the weather will hold off. Thank you so much for your encouraging comments.

Hi Laura,
Cheech is a lucky little guy to be part of your family.
Thank you for your encouraging words.
