Planning your day
10:30 Registration begins at the shelter in the large meeting room.
11:00 – 2:00 Happy Hunting
Refreshments will be available during the egg hunt.
All participants (or guardians if under 18) must sign in at registration and sign the event waiver prior to starting your hunt.
Remember that there are a limited amount of eggs and prizes, so come early and enjoy the day. To share/spread the wealth, we will be limiting prize winnings to one per participant. All eggs will have doggie treats inside and a select few will have a prize sticker denoting that you are the winner of one of our prize baskets. Prizes will be awarded on a first come first “picked” basis.
When hunting, please pick up only 12 eggs at a time. You may continue hunting once the 12 you have picked have been verified and opened.
All eggs are sealed and must be opened at the verification table inside the shelter. Any eggs that have been opened prior to verification will be disqualified should they contain a prize.
Everyone is welcome, with or without a canine friend.
Our egg hunt will proceed rain or shine and will be spread over the entire property, so please dress for the weather and be prepared for a little mud in places.
Dogs must be leashed at all times and must be kept away from our outdoor pens. If your dog does not enjoy the company of other dogs or people, please leave them at home.
Our rabbits have been busy producing many more eggs this year. Come on out; join the hunt, support the animals and have some fun.
