I really wish my dogs had the attention span for this. I mean, they love treats. Yogi, Simon and Ellie get one every single they time they go outside to pop a squat. Now, do I think they would focus long enough to actually hunt for them with other dogs?  As Aretha Franklin sang, "Ain't No Way." But this event sounds like a ball!

SPARKY, Saving Paws Animal Rescue of Kentucky, has announced plans for this year's Easter Bone Hunt, which will be the 9th annual.  This guy looks happy, doesn't he?

However, you can save money if you combo your ticket/donation.  If you want your dog to participate in the hunt and pose for a photo, you can get both for just $25.

Of course, all proceeds raised with benefit SPARKY.  If you'd like to see the animals currently up for adoption through the agency, CLICK HERE!

SparKy is a local, non profit, no-kill, animal rescue and uses a foster program to house available animals until they find their forever homes.  All three of my dogs are rescues. Two of them, Yogi and Simon, are from SPARKY. Since SPARKY's inception back in 2007, the agency has found new homes for just shy of 3,000 pets. That number is absolutely incredible and heartwarming.
