The Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center’s 20th annual Walk With The Animals fundraiser will be on Saturday, May 19th, at Fairmount Park, located at 2601 Fairmount Boulevard near downtown Riverside.
The event was originally scheduled for March 17th, but a weather forecast for a fierce rainstorm caused it to be canceled and then later rescheduled for this date.
Put on your walking shoes and grab your pets and leashes for a leisurely 1.3-mile walk around beautiful Lake Evans while helping raise funds to help support homeless animals in our community.
The festivities will be near the tennis courts and bandshell, just south of Market Street.
A pancake breakfast will start at 8:00, followed by the walk around the lake at 9:00.
Plenty of activities for people and pets will be going on all morning, including exhibits, boutiques, doggie costume contest, activities for kids, bake sale (for people & pets), breed rescue groups, low-cost vaccinations and microchipping, and Muttley Crew K-9 Entertainment.
Congratulations to the top fundraisers for this years event, who turned in their pledges on the original walk date. The winners were: Olga Hammond (Top Individual), Janet Bennett (2nd place Individual), Chris Schulte (Top Youth Individual), Bohdana Figueiredo (2nd place Youth Individual), and Heiting’s Hounds (Top Dog Pack).
