Dogwood Animal Rescue Event
Saturday, December 4th – Berger Lawn, 9 AM – 12 PM.

Dogwood Animal Rescue is a volunteer based organization. Fundraisers & Donations are how they stay in business to care for their beloved foster animals and find them homes. Many Oakmont residents have wonderful “rescue pups” obtained through Dogwood. Thank you all who supported a locally owned businesses and local, nonprofit organization by attending Dogwood’s October Fundraiser at Pawsarotti’s. Canine Club will sponsor another Dogwood Event – Saturday, December 4th – Berger Lawn, 9 AM – 12 PM. Dogwood will bring some pups, have crafts for sale, a raffle drawing, etc. Rain moves the event to the following week, Saturday, December 11th.

Have You Visited Happy Tails Dog Park Recently?
Because of all the rain and then the sun, grass is growing and is absolutely luscious! The new Shade Sails are up. A big thanks to our fellow Woofer, Heidi Klyn, and OVA Board of Director members, for making that project happen. Happy Tails Dog Park is the ONLY place in Oakmont where your pup can run free without a leash, other than your own backyard. The Dog Park hours are from Sunrise to Sunset.

Early Bird Special for 2022 Membership Renewal
Welcome to the many new members who have recently joined, your dues are paid up through 2022. The new member application form can be found on our website if you need one. Now it’s time for all returning members to renew. Your Canine Club dues for 2022 are due in January. Starting with our recent club picnic we are gearing up for a great fun-filled 2022. Dues will continue to be $12 for a single membership or $20 for a household. But we have an early bird special for you – if you pay before the end of this year- your dues are reduced to $10 for a single and $16 for a household.

Checks should be made payable to the “Oakmont Canine Club.” You may return your dues payment to the Canine Club folder in the OVA office. If you prefer, you may mail it to our club treasurer’s home or simply drop it in his home mail box, as it will fall through into a secure box in his garage:
