Baltimore Humane Society's 12th Annual 'Paws on Parade'
(REISTERSTOWN - April 29, 2011) – On Saturday, May 21, 2011, from 11 am - 1 pm, the Baltimore Humane Society (BHS), will hold Paws on Parade, an annual fundraising walk to be held on the grounds of the Baltimore Humane Society itself. The walk will benefit the 1,000+ animals per year that come to the Baltimore Humane Society, and will assist with helping BHS to continue to care for these animals for years to come.
The 1.6-mile route winds through the Baltimore Humane Society's magnificent 365-acre wildlife refuge. Spring flowers and lush greenery will be at their peak this time in May, and this walk will showcase the amazing scenes of spring throughout the entire grounds. A shorter walking route is also available for those who desire one. Participants may register individually or as a team, and will collect pledges to benefit BHS. Participants may walk without an animal. The walk will take place rain or shine, and draws up to 1,000 participants.
In addition to the walk, the day's activities will also include demonstrations by Mid-Atlantic Search and Rescue Dogs; an "Ask the Vet" booth; a bake sale; raffles; and a custom pet tag machine.
Registration is just $10 per person. To register, or for more information about Paws on Parade, please contact Jen Swanson, Director of Development, at email@example.com or call 410-833-8848 ext. 207.
The Humane Society of Baltimore County, now known as the Baltimore Humane Society, was founded in 1927 by Mrs. Elsie Seeger Barton. As a privately funded non-profit organization, we receive no funding from the county, city, or federal governments, and we are not affiliated with the Humane Society of the United States or any other animal welfare organization. To support animal care operations, BHS depends on the income from fundraising events, and donations from individuals, corporations, and foundations in order to continue its day-to-day operations and properly care for the animals at the shelter.
