Dear Friends of Animal Protection League,
We are excited to invite you to join us Friday, July 29, 2022, to our third annual Delta Dog Day UNLEASHED Poker Run. It will be another exciting fast and fun event supporting the Animal Protection Leagues’ ability to improve the lives of homeless and abandoned animals in the City of Stockton and surrounding San Joaquin County.
This year’s participation is simple, safe, and enjoyable for ALL boaters and guests. During this event, we have two exciting routes- one for those of us who enjoy our leisure/recreational (boats of 60mph or less) and the second route is for those with a need-for-speed! Recreational boats begin at Garlic Brothers in Stockton, and the Need-for-Speed group will begin at Orwood Resort in Discovery Bay. Sign-in at both locations will open at 8 a.m. and close at 10 a.m., with a breakfast on the go offered to all participants. You will have an amazing day of fun and adventure on the Delta that will include live music, exclusive event t-shirts and swag bags for all attendees, as well as professional overhead boat crew action shots! From your starting point, you will continue to multiple stops before all boaters end the run at Windmill Cove with check-in between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. The evening will conclude with dinner, a high-end silent auction, fun raffle prizes, as well as the announcement of the Poker Run winner. The top three poker hand prizes will total over $10,000!
The Animal Protection League (APL) has been in existence since 1996. Every day, our work involves supporting/staffing the Stockton Animal Shelter and the community it serves. We provide community outreach programs and care for the pets of the homeless. We provide pet food pantries for low-income and homeless community members, to ensure that the animals do not go without quality food. APL works to ensure that lost, abandoned, and homeless pets find a loving and stable forever home or short and long-term loving and caring foster families to prepare them for their new forever homes. Help us solve the problem of overpopulation of dogs and cats by supporting our spay and neuter clinics for low-income families in the city of Stockton. There have been vast improvements to animal welfare in Stockton and San Joaquin County, but there is still so much left to do! Your participation will help us continue our work in the community!
We hope you will join us in “Chasing Tail on the Delta” and become UNLEASHED as we make the most of summer 2022! We are eternally grateful for all levels of partnership. Our work is only possible because of your participation and generosity. You will directly impact our ability to continue to support, help and raise awareness of animals in dire need.
