West Gate Lodge / 2925 W. Broad St. / Noon–4:00 p.m. / Rain or Shine
Thank you to everyone that came to our event on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.
We raised $1,062 through our Raffles to be donated to pet charities.
Join us next year on September 8, 2024!
For now, take a look at some of our pics from this year’s event…
Westgate Neighbors Association is proud to present Westgate Wags and Whiskers, with the generous support of Brewdog Franklinton and Schoedinger Pets. So, save the date and get ready to leash up, Columbus! All proceeds from our Red Rover Rrrraffle and Purrrfect Pets Basket Raffle will go to pet and animal charities.
Westgate Wags and Whiskers promises the ultimate dog (& cat) day of summer!
This FREE event is open to all pets and their well-behaved humans in and around the city. You must keep your human leashed and under control at all times!
Here’s what you can expect:
Snuggle Up Pet Quilt Throw
Schoedinger Pets Rainbow Bridge
Red Rover Rrrraffle:
We have two items in this raffle. Both were specially created for Westgate Wags and Whiskers!
Tickets: 1 for $5; 3 for $10; 8 for $20
With this first item, you can enjoy quality time together with the Snuggle Up Pet Quilt Throw:
The second item is a 3D miniature version of the large on-site Schoedinger Pets Rainbow Bridge. It is created out of plywood and lumber, and painted by hand. It is coated with marine varnish so it can be displayed outside if you choose.
Purrrfect Pets Basket Raffle:
Multiple baskets will be available to choose from.
Tickets: 1 for $3; 4 for $10; 10 for $20
Everyone who checks in at the Welcome Tent will be given a FREE TICKET for the basket raffle.
Drawings will be held at 3:30 p.m. You do not need to be present to win. All proceeds benefit animal & pet charities.
These coloring pages deserve a round of “a-paws”! Download our Westgate Wags and Whiskers coloring pages just for the fun of it!

Applications accepted in March
The Westgate Neighbors Association Scholarship was established in 2015 as an extension of our mission to “help our community thrive”. The $1000 postsecondary education scholarship is funded by a portion of the proceeds from the Westgate Home & Garden Tour. It is awarded annually to a qualified resident of Westgate who contributes to the betterment of their community through their demonstrated service and leadership. While GPA and course selection are considered, the committee is focused more on the candidates’ involvement with their communities.
do not delete
If it is determined by the scholarship committee that none of the applicants meet the eligibility requirements, or embody the standards by which the scholarship was established, we reserve the right not to award the scholarship for the current year.
Submit all of the above to email@example.com no later than Sunday, April 30, 2023 at midnight
