Come Join Us For The 2014 DC Walk for the Animals & Pet-A-Palooza, September 27 - The Washington Humane Society


Washington, DC - The Washington Humane Society (WHS) DC Walk for the Animals & Pet-A-Palooza is just over a week away! Join us on Saturday, September 27, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at The Kingsbury Center (5000 14th Street, NW) for a free community event, offering fun for both two- and four-footed members of the family.

We are pleased to announce that our Masters of Ceremonies will be ABC7/WJLA Senior Political Reporter Scott Thuman and WTTG Fox 5 Reporter Lauren DeMarco. This dynamic duo will help to kick off the festivities of the day, including our fundraising Walk, festival of games, contests, and activities for kids, adults, and dogs.

There is still plenty of time 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 (four to 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. Online registration is open through 5:00 pm on Friday, September 26, and onsite registration will also be available ($30 for adults, $25 for kids).

In an exciting new partnership, Cartoonist Brian Basset (creator of the comic strip Red and Rover - distributed in over 250 newspapers) has designed a collection of comic strips exclusively for this event. Basset will be onsite to meet fans and help with the program. Learn more about this partnership at www.washhumane.org/redandrover.

Don’t have a dog? Don’t worry! We encourage all animal lovers to come and join the fun, plus, 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.

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.
