Welcome Thor!

April 14, 2011 at 1:01 pm Leave a comment

Summit County is “dog country” and the Outlets at Silverthorne, being in the heart of the county, decided to celebrate the passion the mountain communities have for animals by honoring a newly adopted homeless dog as their official shopping center mascot. Thor (named after Silver”THOR”ne) was adopted by a member of the center’s management team through a rescue organization after he was found in a ravine in New Mexico. At the time, less than 10 weeks old, Thor was brought to a shelter and shortly thereafter he was making his way up to his new home in Summit County.

Outlets at Silverthorne management team saw Thor and heard about his rough start in the world and decided to help. The shopping center made him their “official mascot” in March and then invited local partners, including Bark Busters Home Dog Training, who is providing all of Thor’s professional dog training, G’day Pet Care who is supplying his first year of puppy food, and Farmers Korner Veterinary Hospital who will provide his regular scheduled vet services, to join forces.

If you’d like to meet Thor you can stop by Outlets at Silverthorne Tuesday’s through Saturday’s from 9 am to 5 pm (minus any vacations and/or days off he has scheduled). He will be in the Management Office or in our Customer Service & Summit County Visitors Center. If he’s not there you’ll find him walking with his team around the shopping center visiting with our shoppers and retailers. Thor will also be hosting and attending events throughout Summit County with his owner and the staff at Outlets at Silverthorne as he helps other homeless animals in Summit County find a new home.

Thor’s a pretty lucky dog to not only be adopted by a great family living in Summit County but to get a bigger, extended family with the community that work and shop at the Outlets at Silverthorne. Knowing this, Thor, in partnership with Outlets at Silverthorne, are making a difference. They have joined forces with LAPS (League for Animals & People of the Summit) and will donate fifty cents ($0.50) to LAPS for every new person who visits the Outlets at Silverthorne’s Facebook page (now through May 31, 2011) and “likes” their page. LAPS is a 501-C-3 non-profit organization that raises funds to support a variety of programs for the pets of low-income families living or working in the Summit County area.

This fundraising event for LAPS is just the first in a series of community activities Thor and the Outlets at Silverthorne will be doing to help homeless animals in need. To keep up with other ways Thor is helping animals in find homes follow his adventures on Outlets at Silverthorne’s Facebook page.

We hope you will help Thor with his fundraising efforts by sharing this blog or telling your friends to “like” Outlets at Silverthorne’s Facebook page before May 31, 2011. Your “like” will help raise needed funds for LAPS.

From the staff and retailers at Outlets at Silverthorne they say “thanks” and from Thor “woof”.
