Bulldogs Unleashed Expecting Christmas Puppies
 
Batavia, Illinois: The Bulldogs Unleashed popular painted statues are expecting puppies just in time for Christmas adoption.  A 30-day public adoption campaign for 8” tall puppies (statues) kicks off on September 15, 2017 and ends at midnight on October 15, 2017. Partners Batavia Library Foundation, the Batavia Foundation for Educational Excellence, and the Batavia Parks Foundation are excited to provide this opportunity for the community to adopt (purchase) their own souvenir size bulldog puppy.  Puppies are now available for order online at www.bulldogsunleashed.org or until the litter is all adopted.
 
Event chairman, Steven McKenna remarks, “Everyone loves puppies, so the committee thought this would be a great new addition to the Bulldogs Unleashed family.” McKenna reminds Batavians that this adoption campaign is just 30 days long. “Families who want a puppy in time for Christmas need to order by October 15, 2017.”  The fee to provide a forever home to an 8” tall x 12” long bulldog is $75 (white/unpainted) and $95 (Crimson, gold or black).  A reminder that all proceeds from the puppy adoption fees is shared equally by the three partner non-profits. Batavia Bulldog puppy pick up date/s and location/s will be posted on the Bulldogs Unleashed website and sent to families who adopt them after November 15.
 
All puppy owners are invited to decorate or paint their pup and enter it in the Windmill City Fest “Parade of Puppies,” where the decorated puppies are on display during the July festival, eligible to win “Best of Show” and “People’s Choice” awards.  Pair your puppy gift with a painting class and you’ve got two items checked off your Christmas list. A puppy painting class by community partner, Water Street Studios and is being scheduled for early 2018 with details coming soon.
