MIAMI - Walk for the Animals to benefit the Humane Society of Greater Miami is scheduled for Saturday, February 23, 2013 at Bayfront Park (301 North Biscayne Boulevard).
This family and animal-friendly event is the Humane Society of Greater Miami's largest annual community fundraiser. More than 4,000 animal lovers will gather together for a morning filled with fun activities for pets and the people they own!
This yearm an "ADOPTION CENTER" – sponsored by Pet Supermarket - will be added to the event. Local rescue groups are invited to bring their puppies, kittens, cats, and dogs so many loving and permanent homes can be found.
All adoptable animals will be spayed/neutered, microchipped and up to date with vaccines.
The event will feature fun-filled activities for the entire family, including all of our furry friends. Sponsors will offer music, games, prizes, product samples, and great food.
Registration opens at 8:30 a.m. and entertainment will be provided from 9:00 a.m. ‘til noon. The one-mile stroll around the park (with or without a dog) begins at 10 a.m.
The minimum donation for an individual walker is $50 and includes a Walk t-shirt, a fabulous goodie bag and doggie bandana. Or, form a Pack (team) with your family and friends and receive personalized Pack goodies. Big Dog Packs are for walkers 18 years of age and over and Proud Pup Packs for those under 18. The Pack raising the most money will be recognized at the event with a special surprise.
"Every dollar raised from the Walk goes toward sheltering more than 300 homeless cats and dogs in our care every day. In addition, the funds help support our spay/neuter services, quality adoptions, humane education and pet therapy," said Donna Tallon, Executive Director.
