America’s Favorite Beagle Turns 60
Snoopy’s Birthday to Benefit Homeless and Abused Animals in Mecklenburg County
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (August 2, 2010) America’s favorite beagle is turning 60, and Carowinds, along
with WSOC-FM, and CMPD Animal Care and Control, are throwing him a birthday bash he’ll never
forget. Join Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and the rest of the PEANUTS™ gang as we help this cool
canine celebrate, and help other animals at the same time!
On August 7, 2010, beginning at 10AM, bring an unused pet toy, food, leashes, collars, or other pet
supplies, and get $15.00 off a full price Regular Single Day admission. Carowinds will then donate
all proceeds to the CMPD Animal Care and Control to aid the relief efforts of abused, mistreated
and neglected cats and dogs in Mecklenburg County.
“Snoopy was adopted by Charlie Brown and we wanted to recognize that special moment here at
Carowinds, especially on Snoopy’s sixtieth birthday,” said Bart Kinzel, Carowinds’ vice president
and general manager. “There are thousands of dogs and cats in our area who need our help, and
we know how generous our guests are. Together, we can help make the lives of some of are areas
abused and neglected pets a little brighter.”
