    • There will be a separate table for "trash to treasures". This table will allow you to share grooming, training, toys or other dog related items that you have that just didn't work out for you but might work out for someone else. It will give someone else a chance to use them at a reduced rate. So bring in those ½ used shampoos, grooming tools, beds, toys and anything else. Proceeds from this sale will be donated to rescue and WSS donor advised fund with AKC/CHF.
