The Prescott Dog Magazine
From The Pack Leader
Hello and Happy Holidays from our home to yours.
2016 has been a big year for our family and The Prescott Dog Magazine. My long-held dream came true on February 19th. That’s the day that the magazine officially became ours; my husband David and I. The sale presented the opportunity for us to use our “day job skills” to continue giving voice to a cause which we both hold dear, that of animals and rescues in particular.
The theme for the year could be summed up in two words; new and more. New ownership, new staff, new contributors and new rack locations. More news, more pages of pets for adoption, more features and more circulation. I hope that the changes have excited you too!
Prescott Dog Magazine also hosts two adoption festivals each year. WOOFstock in Prescott Valley and DOGtoberfest, in Prescott. Both had milestone anniversaries this year, 5th and 10th respectively. Both events provide a fun atmosphere for all ages, as we celebrate “all things dog” but at its heart the festivals provide a stage for loving, deserving dogs from all over Arizona, to find their forever homes. We are honored to report that hundreds and hundreds of dogs have found their forever homes during these events over the years.
All of these milestones are meaningless without the most important factor…You!
I want to personally thank each and every one of you for your continued support of Prescott Dog Magazine, WOOFstock and DOGtoberfest. I encourage each of you to let us know how we’re doing. The staff and I welcome your continued comments and story ideas, through post or email. We cherish each one and respond to many. You are truly the eyes and ears of the magazine. We appreciate that!
It takes a community. The real work that takes place to make “the Dog” run is gladly done by a community of award-winning writers, photographers, and designers. I could not have hand picked a better, more knowledgeable group of individuals to carry out our mission. My gratitude to each of you.
My deepest gratitude goes to Ann Harrington, founder of The Prescott Dog. Ann has been a tireless advocate for animal welfare throughout her career. Eight years ago when Ann created the magazine she created a mouthpiece for those that didn't have a consistent voice; the animals and the rescue groups that help them, in our communities. That tradition will continue. We wish Ann all the best in her retirement!
What does the future hold? In a perfect world every companion animal would be in a wonderful, loving, forever home. Most of us know that our current world is not perfect. Until the day comes when we set the world to right, we will be in this fight, a fight to give voice to the voiceless, innocent creatures that have been entrusted to us humans, where they can live the lives that they were intended to live. Until that day, we'll be there.
Peace, Love, Dogs,
