Humane Society PetsWalk coming up July 13

Pet lovers can sign up now to participate in Kitsap Humane Society’s 20th Annual PetsWalk.

All proceeds from PetsWalk help homeless pets at the Humane Society. Participants of all ages are invited to pledge or donate at www.kitsap-humane.org and create their own PetsWalk web page.

Participants will ask family, friends and co-workers to contribute pledges for their 1K or 5K walk for the animals on Saturday, July 13, from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds.

The PetsWalk event will feature kids’ activities, contests, demonstrations and adoptable animals. At 8 a.m. sharp, participants can start by treating the whole family to breakfast to fuel up for the walk that starts at 9:30 a.m.

Kitsap Humane Society encourages pet owners to bring along pets of all types, breeds, age and beauty to scamper, amble, march and meander along the walk.  (All animals must be restrained with leashes or harnesses).

Vendors of pet products and supplies, music, animal exhibits and demonstrations will round out the activities throughout the day.

At 11:30 a.m., prizes will be awarded to the most successful fundraisers in the adult, youth, child, team, small business and corporation categories.  Winners in costume contests and kids’ contests will also get prizes.

KHS plans to use funds from this year’s event to support its spay/neuter programs, medical and behavioral rehabilitation and ongoing dog kennel improvements.
