On a chilly weekend in mid-April, Rescue Me Ohio set up a booth with the Humane Society of Delaware County at the Columbus Pet Expo. It was the biggest event that RMO has ever attended so far, and was a great way to meet current fans (thanks for stopping by!) and discuss our mission with those that didn’t know about us.
From Friday through Sunday, members of Rescue Me Ohio were there to discuss with the expo attendees what animal rescue means to them and how RMO is working to fill in the gaps that exist within the community. We worked to encourage people to foster, cross post, donate, or do whatever else they possibly could to get involved in rescue. It was great to see that so many people who stopped by already believe in or are involved in rescue at some level!
HSDC brought adoptable dogs every day and they were a huge hit with the people passing by! The dogs got lots of attention and the shelter received donations and interest! I heard that many of the dogs brought to the event ended up being adopted already, which is awesome!
This event was a huge success, and was so great meeting the wonderful fans out there who stopped to chat! Please spread the word and rescue!
