Rain or shine, the Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center will host the 20th annual ‘Walk With The Animals’ fundraiser at Fairmount Park in Riverside on Saturday, March 17, now dubbed ‘St. Paw-tricks Day’ in honor of this event.
The Grand Marshals for 2012 are Bob Harper (pictured left), from NBC’s The Biggest Loser , and Wolfhound Rescue, protecting Irish Wolfhound companions everywhere.
Put on your walking shoes and grab your pets and leashes for a leisurely 1.3-mile walk around scenic Lake Evans while helping raise funds to help support homeless animals in our community.
First 500 walkers receive a special goodie bag and raffle ticket.
Individuals who collect $75 in pledges receive a Walk t-shirt.
Virtual walkers and Doggie Date Sponsors are also encouraged.
