And one final thank you to all of our sponsors:

Last, but not least, please visit your local Unleashed, the Dog & Cat Store to support the host of this event and all of our efforts. Spring Fling is coordinated and run entirely by Unleashed employees, friends, and family. It is a true labor of love that we pour hours of time (and money) into. We love to support all pets, including both those looking for homes and those who have already found their forever homes. Stop by and see everything that we have to offer for your pet(s)!

Unleashed, the Dog & Cat Store is still independently and locally owned and operated. We are a full supply store for all of your dogs and cats' needs. We have everything from toys to treats to a self-service dog wash. We are passionate about holistic health and have pet food experts in all of our locations. We are also passionate about customer service and want you and your pets to have the best possible experience shopping for pet supplies! Learn more and find all of our locations on our website:

And one final note: If you have anything to share with us, please do! We love to see your pictures, would love to hear about adoptions that came from the event and more! Tag us @k9SpringFling or send us a direct message!

And thank you again to everyone that joined us and everyone that donated! Follow our social media pages and blog so you don't miss when we announce next year's date! @k9SpringFling
