Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation 2018

By: DogTrekker Staff

Meet Lisbeth Salander, Nordic heroine, who's just emerging from puppyhood and anxious to find her lifelong family. Preferably one who's interested in getting out and exploring — this girl comes from huskies and border collies, and needs something to do. She loves exploring outdoors, and also playing with her human and canine friends. At 58 pounds, she's just about the perfect size for a companion dog. Lisbeth still has a lot of puppy bounciness, and would benefit from a manners class with her new family so everyone knows what's right. Learn more about her here.

Lisbeth is currently enjoying the hospitality of Tony La Russa's Animal Rescue Foundation, which hosts the Animals on Broadway festivities in Walnut Creek on May 19. It's a day of fun for dogs, kids, and their adult companions that kicks off with a walk raising support for ARF. (Individuals and teams can register for the walk at The fun continues at the free post-walk community celebration. Rescue groups will be on hand, so if you're looking for a new family member, here's a chance to do a lot of meeting and greeting.

And if you think your dog should be on TV, KOFY-TV will be on hand doing Doggie Casting Calls for those coveted on-air spots.

All funds raised by the walk help support ARF's many lifesaving activities, as well as those to help support pets and their families in the community, from health and wellness programs to a food bank, youth camps and school programs. It's a great day of fun for a great cause, and lots of dogs like Lisbeth thank you!
