Previous WLTA Spring Conference-2018

WLTA held it’s annual Spring Conference in April at the Delafield Hotel and the North Lake Bear Trap Pub.

WLTA “Pays It Forward” fundraising efforts at this event and a match provided by WLTA member Todd Withey raised over $4,500 for Gunnar’s Wheels which provides carts for disabled dogs.

Each time a dog is fitted with a cart from the money raised by WLTA, pictures and/or videos will be provided and displayed on the WLTA Facebook Page of the dogs and their stories. Click on the link above to find out more about those lucky recipients.

If you would like to support Gunnar’s Wheels with a donation, please mail a check made out to them and mail it to the WLTA office.

Thank you to our 2018 Sponsors
