Fido Spring Fling



Story and photography by Cynthialynn Jones

The 3rd Annual Spring Fling was in full force the last beautiful day in April at the Lane Agri Park. This family friendly event hosted more than 5,000 eggs filled with snacks, hundreds of dogs for the hunt, and more than four dozen for the costume contest. Dogs and children of all sizes were present and had a wonderful adventure cruising through the pop up boutiques, food vendors, and hunting for prizes.

Nashville PAW Magazine hosts this shindig for the benefit of local P.A.W.S. and Beesley Animal Foundation. PAWS (Pet Adoption and Welfare Services) is the local shelter for strays, abandoned, and dogs and cats in need of forever homes. Beesley Animal Humane Foundation is Rutherford Counties local nonprofit 501c spay and neuter clinic, offering spay and neuter services, education, vaccinations, heartworm medication as well as flea and tick prevention at greatly reduced costs.
