Hazleton, Luzerne County-

Everyone in the community is invited to attend a Community Dog Walk being hosted by Mystic Power Yoga this Sunday, August 17th. The walk will be lead by Local Dog Trainer " Arthur Bruno" and the event will benefit the Hazleton Animal Shelter. 

"Arthur is a very experienced and well-known dog trainer in our community and we are excited about our partnership with him on this event.  In addition, part of our mission at Mystic Power Yoga, is to give back to our local community and this is just one of many endeavors we have hosted to benefit one of our local non profit organizations." explains Michele Fisher, Mystic Power Yoga Studio Owner. 

Everyone participating in the walk is asked to bring a donation, which will benefit the shelter. Suggested donations include: dry dog, puppy. cat and kitten food, canned dog food, dog and cat toys and treats, clay cat litter, collars and leashes, stainless steel bowls, dog and cat beds, towels, blankets and sheets, heavy duty garbage bags, paper towels, plastic litter pans, bleach and office supplies. Monetary donations will also be accepted.

The dog walk will leave from the Mystic Power Yoga parking lot at 1:30 pm. Representatives ask everyone to bring their leashed dogs a few minutes early, so the walk can begin promptly at 1:30. Mystic Power Yoga is located at 592 Susquehanna Boulevard, Route 93, next to Becker Roofing near the main entrance to the Laurel Mall in Hazle Township.  

If you do not have a dog, but would still like to participate in the walk and provide a donation, you are welcome to attend. Or if you are unable to attend and would still like to make a contribution or donation toward the collection benefiting the Hazleton Animal Shelter, please do so by stopping by the studio with your donation before or after any regularly scheduled yoga class.
