Animal Allies Humane Society presents the 25th Annual Walk for Animals on Saturday, June 3rd at Bayfront Festival Park. Registration begins at 9:00 a.m. and the walk begins at 10:00 a.m.
Get ready for a howling good time! This event attracts more than 400 human participants and their companion animals. The route follows the Lakewalk from Bayfront Park, behind the DECC to the lift bridge, and back to Bayfront Park. There will also be an agility course, vendors, and contests held throughout the morning for cutest puppy, silly pet tricks, best wag, and more!
Participants raise money with donations from family, friends, and co-workers. Fundraising can be done in person, online through social media, or a combination of the two! Donation tracking forms are available by calling (218)-722-5341, or online at www.animalallies.net/walk. Participants who raise $40 or more receive a t-shirt the day of the event and those who raise $100 or more also receive a bandanna for their pet (t-shirts and bandanas are on a first-come, first-served basis). Any walker who raises over $300 in pledges will be honored as a Grand Marshall and will be registered for special prizes and receive a professional photograph of their pet taken the day of the walk!
All proceeds from the 2017 Walk for Animals support Animal Allies adoption, spay/neuter, and humane education programs.
Animal Allies Humane Society is a non-profit organization that strives to ensure a lifetime of loving care for every pet by increasing adoption, decreasing overpopulation, and fostering humane values.
