The Barkfeast History
In Memory of Scramble
Five years ago we saved the life of Scramble, a senior Doberman Pinscher who was thrown from a truck and taken to a shelter in Youngstown, Ohio. He was heart worm positive and needed a second chance on life. He found that at Secondhand Mutts when he met his angel and foster dad Bradley Lunder. Scramble spent months receiving medical treatment and was welcomed into Brad’s home until he passed on July 5, 2010. In his honor we celebrate his life and raise money and awareness for other heart worm positive dogs in our program.
The funds raised at our Pancake Barkfeast allow us to care for dogs we take in who test positive for heartworm. The Pancake Barkfeast is held to raise funds and awareness for the dogs in our program that are heart worm positive. It can cost up to $700 or more per dog to treat them for heart worm. In 2013 we treated 5 dogs that tested positive for heartworm, one who had serious complications and our expenses to treat these five dogs exceeded $7,000.
This year we are adding a new twist and we have several local chefs who will be serving custom made omelettes at our first-ever Omelette Station. There will be plenty of fresh ingredients to order a yummy omelette to your liking. We will be serving buttermilk and chocolate chip pancakes, breakfast potatoes, sausage, bacon, turkey bacon, vegetarian sausage, a vegan tofu scramble and orange juice. Fresh brewed coffee compliments of Crooked River Coffee. .
There is plenty of seating in their dining hall to accommodate large groups so please put together a table of friends and family. Kids are welcome too!
