Helping Paws Animal Shelter is hosting the 14th annual Paws in the Park Walk & Pet Fest fundraiser on Sunday, September 15th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m at Veteran Acres Park. The event has two goals: raise needed funds to operate the animal shelter and to find loving homes for the very adoptable dogs and cats housed there.
The shelter's goal is to raise at least $20,000.
Registration is $35 and includes event t-shirt (for first 100 registrants), dog bandana, goody bag and door prize ticket.
$10 for each additional dog registered.
All well-behaved dogs that are leashed and current with vaccines are welcome.
People are encouraged to go to the event website at www.pawsintheparkwalk.com to register online and can also download a pledge form to further fundraising efforts.
You can even form a pack (a team of people and dogs) and get your family, co-workers or neighborhood involved.
Participants will have a chance to meet some of the adoptable shelters dogs, as well as enjoy an array of activities, including a walk around the pond, games/contests for dogs, raffles, face painting and canine demonstrations, including carting and nosing. Food will be available for purchase from Jersey Mike's of Crystal Lake, as well various items for purchase by vendors including animal treats, collars, and more.
