Tails on Trails on Oct. 8 is a Harbor Humane Society benefit

Harbor Humane Society's largest annual fundraiser, the Tails on Trails Dog Walk, will take place Saturday, Oct. 8, at Ottawa County's Kirk Park in West Olive. The public is invited to participate in the festivities - which include a walk along Lake Michigan, microchipping, contests, informational booths, carnival games for dogs and refreshments. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., with the walk starting at 11 a.m. A dog is not required for participation. The animal shelter will hold a raffle during the event, with winners drawn that day.
