Supporting the Pope Memorial Humane Society is as easy as walking your dog! On Saturday September 13th 2014 folks and their pets from all over join us at Harbor Park in Rockland for the annual Whisker Walk Family Fun Day & 5K. Animal lovers walk/run as individuals or “packs” and collect pledges to raise funds in support of providing food, shelter, medical care and finding homes for homeless pets in our community. The more money you raise through pledges the more lives we can save. After the 5K and mile long walk the festivities continue with agility course demonstrations, animal rescue organizations, children’s activities, a doggy day spa, food, live music, pet retailers, crafters and more. All are welcome, you do not need to bring a pet to participate. Registration starts at 8:00 am, the 5K starts at 9:00 am, the mile-long walk starts at 10:00 am and the festival continue until 2:00 pm. Visit hskcme.org for more details and to register. Then come September 13th lace up those sneakers, leash up your pup, and join us for the Whisker Walk Fun Day & 5K!
