Festival of Paws

Festival of Paws

The Pyramid Wellness Center will be having the 2nd annual “Festival of Paws” on December 19th! The first one was a smashing success, raising over $1000 for the Rutland County Humane Society.

We will be booking slots for Medium and Tarot Readings and Massage, and all the profits that day will go to the animals!

We will also have doggie and kids games, music, refreshments, a raffle, and new this year, a table of good used pet merchandise.

If you have anything in good condition that you’d like to donate, we’d be most grateful. You can drop it off at The Pyramid anytime from now until December 19th. To book a session (and they were ALL filled last year, so book early!) call 802-775-8080.

Celebrate our furry family members this year by participating in a fun-filled day of pet and human games and activities, tarot and spiritual readings, massage, live music, Rutland County Humane Society booth, raffle and refreshments, with all of the proceeds donated to the shelter’s animals.

Free Admission, Donation for Activities
