Washington Humane Society Announces 2014 DC Walk for the Animals & Pet-A-Palooza, September 27


Washington, DC - The Washington Humane Society (WHS) will host its annual DC Walk for the Animals & Pet-A-Palooza on Saturday, September 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. WHS is excited to return to The Kingsbury Center (5000 14th Street, NW), near the Carter Barron Amphitheater in Northwest DC. This is a community event with fun for both two- and four-footed members of the family.

Individuals and teams with their canine friends will walk approximately one mile to raise awareness and much needed funding for WHS. Plus, WHS adopters will now have the chance to become the Grand Marshal of the Walk! When you register to walk at www.dclovesdcanimals.org, just enter your pup’s information for a chance to be randomly selected as our winner. The Grand Marshal and winning pup will help us to kick off the festivities for the day, and lead our Walk!

In addition, Pet-A-Palooza is a festival of games, contests and activities for kids, adults and dogs. Adopt Force One, the WHS mobile adoption unit, will be on-site with plenty of adoptable animals looking to find their forever homes on this special day.

New this year, WHS has partnered with cartoonist Brian Basset, creator of the comic strip Red and Rover, which is distributed in over 250 newspapers. Red and Rover will be offering weekly tips for pet owners to get active and engaged in the Walk fun. Learn more at www.washhumane.org/redandrover.

This fantastic event is free to attend, but WHS encourages people to register as a walker or to create a team to help raise critical funds for DC animals; registration is $20 for adults, $15 for kids (4 - 12 years old), and free for children ages three and under. Registering online at www.dclovesdcanimals.org is easy, plus you can set up your own fundraising page to motivate friends and family to get involved.

Unable to join the walk? Become a “virtual walker” to support DC animals by making an online gift. 100% of the proceeds from this event support the animals and the work of WHS. For more information and to sign up, visit www.dclovesdcanimals.org.
