Retriever's Ball

Pints for Pups.png

We made the unfortunate decision to once again cancel our event, Paws on Parade, because of the constant changes in regards to covid 19. You can still support us through our annual Retriever's Ball! Each year we release hundreds of numbered balls (up to 900!) into the Mill Pond and then we ask a helpful pup to retrieve 6 balls. If your numbered ball is snagged by our retriever, you will win one of the prizes listed below! Our online fundraiser has officially started. Other options for donating toward the Ball will be available (by phone, in person at HSAR as well as Pints for Pups (July 23rd at The Brewing Lair), and mail in to PO Box 548 Portola, CA 96122.) The "drawing" will take place on August 1st, 2022. The last day to donate toward the Ball will be July 31st, 2022. 

Prizes include:

  • Whitehawk Restaurant- Dinner for two

  • Mount Shasta Golf Resort - Two rounds of golf with cart

  • High Mountain Massage- 2, one hour massages

  • Sardine Lake Resort - Dinner for two

  • Kentucky Mine Amphitheater- Music at the Mine "86 Proof" August 13th 7pm - 4 tickets

  • Kentucky Mine Amphitheater- Music at the Mine "The Good Bad w/ Kyle Ledson & Broken Compass August 27th 7pm - 4 tickets


Each ball is $5. 

Each donation will be recorded on our numbered tracker. Then a pup will jump into the Mill Pond and retrieve a handful of balls that are marked with the corresponding numbers. We will take a video of a rescue dog fetching the numbered balls and announce the winners!

100% of proceeds will directly help the dogs in our care! 

Donation is not required for entry.
