Fort Lauderdale, FL -- The 2017 Walk for the Animals presented by VCA Animal Hospitals is just around the corner. Packs (teams) are being formed and people are getting their walking shoes ready for the Humane Society of Broward County’s largest fundraiser of the year. The event takes place on Saturday, March 18, 2017 at Huizenga Plaza in Downtown Fort Lauderdale, with registration opening at 8 a.m. and the 1.2 mile walk starting at 10 a.m. The walk attracts thousands of animal lovers each year. You can register for free by visiting www.walk4theanimals.com and start collecting donations.
Walk day is a celebration of months of fundraising with proceeds going to the animals the HSBC cares for and the programs and services offered to our community. Last year enthusiastic walkers raised over $525,000 for the animals and the goal is even higher this year.
Event Chairs Carey Morgan and Deanna Kubinski, both of Fort Lauderdale, are thrilled to be back along Jacey Birch of WPLG Local 10 News and U-Turn Laverne from 99.9 Kiss Country Radio. There will be a bounce house and face painting for the younger crowd. Dogs can receive the star treatment with red carpet photos courtesy of Little’s Photography and a dip in the doggie pools all while their owners enjoy free pancakes from IHOP, and live entertainment. Participants can also visit sponsor booths and pick up fun items from VCA Animal Hospitals, Purina, Pet Supermarket, BB&T, PETCO, Coconut Creek Subaru and many more!
For information about the walk call Linda at 954-266-6817 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You don’t need to have a pet to join in the fun. The more money you raise the more goodies you earn.
