Animal Allies Humane Society invites two- and four-legged community members to the 21st annual Walk for Animals 9 a.m. June 8 at Bayfront Festival Park.
Walk for Animals is packed with exciting activities including an obstacle course, pet contests, beautiful artwork made by shelter animals on sale from Art Junction at UDAC, a continental breakfast for participants and shopping at vendor booths. All activities are free and open to the public.
Adoptable dogs from Animal Allies will be on site to participate in the walk and visit with potential new family members.
“We are honored to announce that Miller Hill Subaru is, once again, the presenting sponsor of our annual Walk for Animals,” states Kim Holland, community outreach manager for Animal Allies Humane Society. “We are very grateful for all of the community support for our event.”
Along with Miller Hill Subaru as the presenting sponsor, 24 local businesses have stepped forward at various levels of sponsorship to help with the event, Holland said.
Over 300 walkers and their pets are expected for the walk and dozens of volunteers and staff will be on hand to ensure success, rain or shine.
“It’s always a fabulous day for the animals,” Holland said.
Walkers of all ages are invited to participate with or without a companion animal. Registration can be done securely online at www.walkforanimals2013.kintera.org, or on the day of the event at Bayfront Festival Park.
Walkers who raise $40 or more will receive a t-shirt and those who raise $100 or more will earn a bandana for their pet and be entered into a drawing to win additional prizes. The top two teams that raise the most pledges will be awarded a pizza party donated by Grandma’s Sports Garden.
All money raised supports homeless pets though Animal Allies Humane Society’s adoption, spay/neuter, and humane education programs.
Animal Allies Humane Society is located at 4006 Airport Road in Duluth and 2225 Hill Ave., in Superior.
