Pet Lover’s Weekend 2013


The 5th Annual KSQM’s Pet Lover’s Week.  August 5th – 11th. For every $10 donated to KSQM during this week, one pound of animal supplies will be given to local area pet agencies providing pet adoption services.  This year KSQM will be able to donate over 400 pounds of pet supplies to four local agencies:  the Olympic Peninsula Humane Society, Center Valley Animal Rescue, Peninsula Friends of Animals, and WAG (Welfare for Animals Guild).

The week’s broadcast featured pet music, stories, memories and informational spots. Listeners were invited to bring their pets to the Studio for a “tour and a treat” and to PET DAY celebration at Petco on Saturday August 10th.

KSQM ED/GM Bob Schilling and Mojo, the mascot of KSQM, were on hand to welcome the hundreds attending the “KSQM’s Pet Day” Event at Petco, which featured over 20 pet friendly booths, and a variety of pet and animal attractions and demonstrations.

Almost 150 hot dog plates, as well as other refreshments were served to the happy pet loving crowd as all enjoyed the pet attractions and demonstrations including:

  • Miriam Rose and Northwest Noseworks
  • Peninsula Therapeutic Riding with their petting zoo, saddling demo and goat wrestling
  • Deb Cox and Puppy Pilots
  • Shelly Denton of Country Paws with her “Dog Dancing”
  • Sequim Animal Hospital provided micro-chipping

Other entertainment was provided by local guitarist/singer/composer Luke Meeker (sound system provided by Owen Blake).

A host of KSQM volunteers helped make this year’s PET DAY a huge success. A special thanks goes to Hurricane Ridge Kennel Club for providing the demonstration rink again this year, Petco for providing the venue and kind hospitality, and the KSQM Hot Dog Slingers.

Over 42 local businesses and agencies came together to support this 5th annual KSQM Pet Lovers Week.  Mark your calendar for next year’s Pet Day which promises to be bigger and better.
