Walk for the Animals
February 28, 2015 –
It is that time of year! The superb, “howly-dowly-dog-gone” fun time at Miami’s WALK FOR THE ANIMALS Miami! So grab your family—both two legged and four— and walk to support the homeless animals on Saturday February 28, 2015 at Bayfront Park at the annual WALK FOR THE ANIMALS. Presented by Pet Supermarket, the event attracts more than 3,000 people and all proceeds go to the animals at the Humane Society of Greater Miami.
You and your doggie(s) will enjoy a fabulous morning filled with fun activities, entertainment, a doggie fun zone – a thrilling and entertaining run with multi-dimensional lure motivated obstacle course - people and doggie contests, a fabulous raffle and yummy snacks for everyone. Not to miss is the “Walk for the Animals Adoption Arena” where local rescue groups will bring their puppies, kittens, dogs and cats, so loving and permanent homes can be found. A heartfelt thank you to Pet Supermarket for sponsoring the Adoption Arena again this year.
We are honored to have Commissioner Sally A. Heyman as our Grand Marshall and NBC6 meteorologist, Ryan Phillips, will emcee the event for the seventh year. Registration starts at 8:30am, the contest will take place at 09:30am and the one mile stroll around the park—with or without a dog—begins at 10am. You can walk as an individual or form a pack. To register for this unique and fabulous event go to humanesocietymiami.org or call 305-749-1825.
“Every dollar raised from the Walk goes toward sheltering more than 400 homeless cats and dogs in our care every day in our shelter and through our foster care program. In addition, the funds help support our spay/neuter services, quality adoptions, humane education and pet therapy,” said Laurie Hoffman, Executive Director.
