The Sean & Sophia Foundation is proud to announce their First Dog Social and Expo: Sunday, July 24th, 2011, from 12 noon to 6pm. This is a free event, and all fans of canines are welcome to bring their leashed pets to Misty Pines Dog Park. Vendors will be in attendance with health tips, accessories and advice for dogs and their owners, along with great food and treats for all! Scheduled to visit from the Pittsburgh Pirates is the Pirate Parrot; and drawings will be held for prizes from the Pirates, Western PA Humane Society, local media outlets and more!

Misty Pines Dog Park, which is a mile from the Interstate 79 and PA Route 910 exit will have their outdoor agility course and dog pond open to all visitors. Food will be available for pets and owners, and music will be supplied by DJ Tony DeSabato.

Sean, Sophia, and the many foundation volunteers have been working hard to fill every square inch of the indoor expo with FUN for all during this mid-Summer event!


About the Sean and Sophia Foundation:
The Foundation was formed as a fundraising effort for the Forsyth family. Seven-year-old Sean Forsyth suffers from Aspergers Syndrome, a high-functioning form of autism. Early in 2011, the family was presented with a wonderful opportunity to obtain a service dog, Sophia, to further assist Sean's therapy, and to provide a loyal companion and best friend to a little boy who badly needed one. The future goals of Sean & Sophia are to provide financial assistance, consulting, and fundraising assistance to families of children with special needs to purchase services or equipment that either insurance does not cover or is financially out of reach. The foundation works with other local and national organizations across the country to spread awareness of autism, and bring attention to new and breakthrough strategies to help assist those diagnosed, and the families who love and support them.
