Attention owners of Labrador Retrievers and Golden Retrievers -- Retriever Fever will be here soon.

Don't panic. This Retriever Fever is a good thing! It is being put together by Paws With A Cause. They hope to have the largest gathering of retrievers in Michigan!

This event will allow dog owners to meet up and learn more about Paws With A Cause. And let's have some friendly competition amongst the retriever owners to see who can raise the most support for Paws With A Cause in one afternoon.

It all happens at Grand Ravines Dog Park, in Jenison, from 11 am-2 pm on Saturday September 11th, 2021. It will be a action packed day with vendors, a 50/50 raffle, merchandise, food trucks, along with Assistance Dog and Agility Dog demonstrations.

Most importantly...there is a large fenced in area for all the retrievers to play in! The Grand Ravines Dog Park is managed by the Ottawa County Parks Department. It is a 21-acre, off-leash dog park that is free to the public.

Even if you don't own a Golden Retriever or Labrador Retriever, come out and enjoy the fun. WFGR's Scott Winters will be doing a remote broadcast from the event.

Be part of this exciting fundraiser. There will be a large group photo taken at noon. They will be using a drone to take the photo to make sure everyone is in the picture.
