About The Furr Bowl

Each year, Great River Rescue saves, cares for, and finds homes for hundreds of companion dogs and cats in need.  As a community non-profit, we can only continue this work with the support of our community.  Please join us for the 2018 Furr Bowl and help us raise more funds by creating your own fundraising page.  Seek contributions from family members, friends and colleagues.  Top fundraisers will have first pick of specially-made bowling pins by the artists of Gallery North and will win other great prizes! 


Event Details

The Furr Bowl event will be held on Sunday, April 15 from 1 to 3pm at Bemidji Bowl.  Registration is $25.  Everyone should register as an individual, but you can form teams of up to 6 people.  If you are part of a team, simply include your team name when registering and we'll make sure you get on the same lane with your teammates.  All registrants will get to enjoy 2 hours of bowling, free pizza and pop, and lots of great prizes.  All the while you will be supporting a great community cause!

We only have space for 16 lanes of bowlers. Please register early. If you wait, you might miss out!



The best way for you to impact Great River Rescue and our animals is to use your own fundraising page to seek donations from family and friends. GiveGab makes it really fun and easy to do your fundraising. Plus, you will earn lots of great gifts when you reach various levels of fundraising. Here is a list of some of the things you can win:

At $50 - you win a special "Opt to Adopt" Lanyard
At $75 - you win a Great River Rescue T-shirt

For every $50 you raise, you will be entered into a drawing for an Easy Walk Harness, Gentle Leader, Leash and Martingale Collar!

Start fundraising today and help us raise over $8,000 for companion pets and the people who love them. 


This event would not be possible without help from our incredible sponsors!
