Boulanger - Hollywood Resident is Cover Dog for the 28th Annual Walk for the Animals Benefitting the Humane Society of Broward County

Fort Lauderdale, FL -- Mark your calendars!  The 2018 Walk for the Animals presented by VCA Animal Hospitals is just around the corner.  The cover dog for the big event, appearing on walk brochures and posters, is shelter alumni Ruby a three year old Australian Shepherd and now a resident of Hollywood. Ruby shares a home with other dogs and cats, and adores her human brother Roscoe.

Ruby hopes you will join her and thousands of other animal lovers on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at Huizenga Plaza in Downtown Fort Lauderdale.  The fun begins with registration opening at 8 a.m. and the 1.25 mile walk through beautiful Fort Lauderdale starting at 10 a.m.  You can register now, by visiting  and start collecting donations.  Last year enthusiastic walkers raised over $575,000 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 Doc Reno from BIG 105.9.  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, Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health, Coconut Creek Subaru and many more!

For information about registering, forming a “Pack” or team, or if your business is interested in being a sponsor, contact Linda Sanders at 954-266-6817 or   You don’t need to have a pet to join in the fun.  The more money you raise the more goodies you earn.
