    About Canine Companions Rescue Center:
    Canine Companions Rescue Center is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation founded in 2004 for the purpose of working with the community and area animal control agencies to promote the adoption of dogs without families. It is our goal to rescue dogs with good family potential. If our adopters and our dogs are both happier after the match, then we've done our job!

    Our adoption fee for all of our dogs, regardless of breed, is $200 for adults and $275 for puppies. As part of this fee we will bring your dog up to date medically, including a spay or neuter. The adoption fee also includes a post-adoption vet visit with one of CCRC vets. For more details on what is covered, please see our Health Statement on the Adoption Application page. These services would run over $300 at the vet, so adopting a rescue dog makes good financial sense!

    - FROM FARM TO FAMILY

    Oakland County Market is a mainstay for providing grower-direct fresh produce and flowers to county residents and visitors. The maket hosts more than 100 farmers and artisans, representing 17 Michigan counties.

    A producer-direct market, participating vendors must grow or make the products that they bring for sale during the main season (May-October). During the off season (November-April), vendors may bring approved farm market type items no produced by themselves.

    MORE THAN JUST FRUITS AND VEGGIES

    Shoppers will find fresh vegetables, fruits and baked goods as well as flowers, artisan crafts and more.

    Spend the day at the market and enjoy a breakfast sandwich or barbeque lunch served by market vendors.

    The market also hosts many special events and educational programs and can be rented by the public for various purposes.

    Not all vendors participate in the market year-round; many are seasonal.

    About Canine Companions Rescue Center:
    Canine Companions Rescue Center is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation founded in 2004 for the purpose of working with the community and area animal control agencies to promote the adoption of dogs without families. It is our goal to rescue dogs with good family potential. If our adopters and our dogs are both happier after the match, then we've done our job!

    Our adoption fee for all of our dogs, regardless of breed, is $200 for adults and $275 for puppies. As part of this fee we will bring your dog up to date medically, including a spay or neuter. The adoption fee also includes a post-adoption vet visit with one of CCRC vets. For more details on what is covered, please see our Health Statement on the Adoption Application page. These services would run over $300 at the vet, so adopting a rescue dog makes good financial sense!

Fun things to do in Waterford

Since 1986 the Town Planner Calendar has been keeping families across America up-to-date about events and other fun things to do right in their hometown.

Delivered free of charge every December to millions of homes across America, our full-sized, full-color calendar is a time-tested and beloved tool for helping families stay organized. The large date blocks are not only loaded with lots of nearby events and fun things to do, there's plenty of room for you to record your own family's important events like birthdays, anniversaries, parties -- anything you have planned -- so everybody in the house can see them whenever they go to the fridge, out the front door, or wherever you choose to display it.

But there's more! Every calendar is full of coupons from popular local merchants, so you can save money while supporting small businesses right in your hometown.

And don't miss our beautiful full-color photography! Every month you'll recognize a new photo from someplace close to home, submitted to us by a local photographer. If you'd like to have your own hometown photos included in our calendar, please contact your local publisher for more information.

We truly believe it's better to "keep it local". From coast to coast and border to border, our network of franchisees work with organizations and merchants right in their community to make sure you get the information and savings you care about. We prefer to feature family-friendly events that are a short walk or drive away, and coupons from local businesses so you can support your hometown economy.

If there's something happening close to home that folks in your neighborhood need to know about, why not submit it to us today? Please note that publication of your event is subject to approval by your local Town Planner publisher.

If there's no Town Planner calendar in your area, you could be looking at a great business opportunity! Town Planner franchisees set their own hours and can work out of their homes while providing a valuable service to both homeowners and local businesses in the area. To learn more about how to become a Town Planner franchise owner, please view our franchise information page.
