Nokomis Vet Service Hosts Fundraiser For Dog Park


Owners of dogs, cats, horses, rabbits, gerbils–you name it–can go home with a unique portrait of their pet by participating in the Paint Your Pet Party sponsored by Nokomis Veterinary Service. 

The party will be on Sunday, March 24, from 1 to 4 p.m. at The Event Center of Montgomery County, the former KC Hall on Route 185 south of Hillsboro. 

Photos of pets will be used by owners to create one-of-a-kind paintings. An artist will be available to assist.

Dr. Stacey Funderburk, veterinarian, said she's happy to help raise funds for the future Hillsboro Dog Park. "We are all about giving back to the community and offering fun and educational events," she said. 

Tickets, $50 each, include all painting costs and snacks. The event is limited to the first 50 who RSVP by calling the clinic, 217-563-7221, and by submitting payment and the pet's photo. Deadline to register is March 18. Photos can emailed to
