Walk for dogs in danger

May
26

Mark your calendars for this event. This is from DogsinDanger.com, based here in Westchester County (NY).

Local Non-Profit Invites You to Walk for the Dogs
100% of Walk-a-Thon Proceeds Will Go to Life Saving Mission for Shelter Dogs

WHO: DogsinDanger.com is an award winning, non-profit website dedicated to raising awareness to the plight of the millions of dogs running out of time in shelters across America. Every year, animal shelters care for six to eight million abused, abandoned, or unwanted animals. Of these, three to four million meet a tragic end – euthanasia due to lack of space and resources. DogsinDanger.com is the last hope for many of these dogs, using the Internet to connect dogs in the most desperate need with loving homes before time runs out.

WHAT: DogsinDanger.com is holding the “March for the Dogs” Walk-a-Thon, with 100% of the net receipts from the event going towards the production of a DogsInDanger national television public service announcement to run on hundreds of networks around America, heightening awareness of the website and increasing the effectiveness of its life saving mission. In addition to the two mile walk, the day will feature activities for the whole family, including live music, refreshments, arts and crafts for kids and more. The cost to register is $20, which includes a complimentary DogsinDanger t-shirt and a personal website to circulate to friends and family to invite them to walk or sponsor you. And, of course, all participants are invited to bring their favorite canine companion.

WHERE: Franklin D. Roosevelt State Park, Yorktown Heights, NY

WHEN: Saturday, June 12th, 10 a.m to 2 p.m.
