On Saturday, July 21st from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. more than 1,000 dogs and their families will meet at Fort Steilacoom Park in Lakewood to have a great time while helping homeless animals.
Choose the one-mile stroll on the paved, level trail around Lake Waughop (perfect for the older dog) or hike the four-mile forested trail that leads up to spectacular views of the lake, Mt. Rainier, the Olympic Mountains and the waters of Puget Sound. Along the routes, stop and enjoy the Treat Stop, Toy Stop, Water Stops and the Photo Stop.
Walking with your dog is only half the fun! There will be opportunities to participate in the Magnificent Mutt Show, and to observe demonstrations by: Tacoma’s Police Department K-9 Unit, Department of Corrections drug sniffing dogs, Ewe-Topia Herding Dogs, or collapse on the grass and soak up the sun with the friendliest dogs (and people!) around. If that isn’t enough, stop by and have your pet microchipped for only $20!
To get started, log onto thehumanesociety.org and download a pledge form or call (253) 284-5811. This day is for the dogs!
