Danbury Animal Welfare Society will be hosting the 22nd Walk for Animals on September 25, 2011. The event will be held at the UConn Extension Center at 67-69 Stony Hill Road, Bethel (across from the Stony Hill Inn). Registration begins at 9:00 and the Walk begins around 11:00. The Walk will include family focused activities such as face painting and a bouncy house as well as dog agility course for the four-legged guests.
The Walk for Animals is a noncompetitive, leisurely walk for dogs and their owners to help raise funds and awareness for Danbury Animal Welfare Society.
• Dogs must be in good physical condition, altered, and up-to-date on all vaccinations.
• All dogs must wear an ID tag and be on a leash.
• Walkers must scoop up after their dogs.
• Dogs must be people-and-dog-friendly.
• Walkers under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
• Visit adoptable cats at our new Feline Fan House, but cats cannot partake in the Walk.
The proceeds made from the Walk allow DAWS to continue its mission to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome companion animals. Please visit www.daws.org/walk for more information and to pre-register through FirstGiving.
Danbury Animal Welfare Society is a non-profit, volunteer-run organization dedicated to improving the lives of animals in our community and beyond. Founded in 1974, we provide shelter and care to animals in need, offer adoption counseling to place our animals in loving, forever homes, promote responsible pet guardianship and the humane treatment of animals. We also work towards ending animal overpopulation through education, spay/neuter, and trap-neuter-return programs.
