Why do you do the Walk for Animals?
That short walk that goes miles and miles and miles for animals is just a few short months away. The Animal Humane Society Walk for Animals is on Saturday, May 1 and we at AHS want to know: Why do you do the Walk?
Is it because you adopted your best friend at AHS? Or do you simply enjoy being able to help out so many animals less fortunate than your own? No matter the reason, we want to hear from you!
Tell us why you did the Walk for Animals last year or every year. Your story may be used to promote the Walk and could possibly even land you a spot on a Fox 9 or Cities 97 broadcast.
While you’re thinking, take a look at why our friends at Fox 9 do the Walk for Animals…
Tell us by video or tell us in writing. Why do you do the Walk? Submit your stories to YouWalked@animalhumanesociety.org.
Keep watching Pet Dish for more information on this stand-up-on-you-hind-legs and bark event. Online fundraising beings early February!
Emma, many dogs available
and staff at Animal Humane Society Woodbury added one more item to their
holiday wish list this past December, “A new home for Emma.” Unfortunately,
their holiday wish wasn’t granted and Emma still waits for a new home.
a black Labrador retriever mix, arrived at AHS in early November after being
found by a family. She was roaming their neighborhood. The family posted flyers
and when no one rang their bell to pick her up, they knew they had to bring her
to a place where she could find a home.
Although she’s been in shelter for several months, her spirits are
still high and she’s showing everyone who meets her the incredible
energy she has for life. When most of us were grumbling about the
recent winter storms, Emma was taking AHS Volunteer Mike Vallante for a
run through the snowbanks. (read more about Emma...)
