The funds are used to support the shelter’s many animal welfare and community outreach programs.
The public is invited to participate in the Dog Walk and its associated festivities, which offer fun for the entire family. The event includes a walk along Lake Michigan,
discounted microchipping, contests, a raffle, informational booths and refreshments.
The event runs from 10 a.m. to noon, with the walk beginning at 10 a.m.
A dog is not required for participation, but is encouraged to come and participate in the festivities.
Participants are asked to raise donations to help Harbor Humane Society care for thousands of animals each year and to support its various community outreach programs.
The registration fee is $25 and may be paid by raising pledges. Online registration is available at harborhumane.org/dogwalk/.
About 4,000 animals are cared for each year at Harbor Humane Society while the shelter tries to find them permanent homes.
