Thank you to everyone who participated in the 23rd Annual Pet Walk 2012, a walk-a-thon benefiting The Hinsdale Humane Society, on Sunday, June 3rd at Katherine Legge Memorial Park. Hundreds of people and their four-legged canine companions attended Pet Walk this year. We were thrilled to have a beautiful sunny day! We are blessed to have such wonderful support from our community, vendors, sponsors, partners and friends.
We are excited to share that we have raised over $55,000 for the homeless and needy animals in our community! Thanks to all who sponsored, supported, purchased prize tickets, walked, volunteered and more. We couldn't have reached our goal without you!
It was a fun day for the entire family, featuring pet contests on stage, exciting dog demo’s including: Frisbee dogs, K-9 Police dog demos and more! There were several animal rescue groups, a pet intuitive, “Ask-a-Vet” table, face painting, and photo finish buttons. The carnival games for dogs, petting zoo and pony rides were popular and busy all day! And, shoppers enjoyed browsing through the "Pet Mall" where vendors showcased new and exciting pet related products and services.
