Registration is now open for the 15th Annual Paws in the Park dog walk and festival, one of the largest dog walks in the DC area. As a signature special event of the Montgomery County Humane Society, held in partnership with the City of Gaithersburg, it raises funds to help homeless and abandoned animals throughout Montgomery County.
This year’s event will take place on Sunday, April 28, from noon to 4 p.m. at Bohrer Park at Summit Hall Farm, 506 S. Fredrick Ave., Gaithersburg, MD, next to Gaithersburg High School.
The fun-filled afternoon includes a 1-mile walk, pet games, demos, rescue groups, a “flealess” market with over 50 pet-friendly vendors, food, music and more.
Registered walkers are encouraged to invite friends to support them through online donations. Supporters can sign on individually or by forming a team that includes family and friends, favorite breed groups, rescue organizations, companies, teams to honor or remember a pet – even the family cat. Entrance fees are $20 for an individual or $35 for a family.
To register and start fundraising online, visit www.firstgiving.com/mchsmd. Register before March 1 and be entered to win a $50 gift certificate to Addie’s (Rockville) or Black’s (Bethesda) Restaurant. Participants can also register on-site the day of the event.
Paws in the Park supports the Montgomery County Humane Society’s efforts to protect and care for unwanted, abandoned and abused animals – everything from dogs, cats, rabbits, and guinea pigs, to reptiles, birds and others. Contributions make a difference in the animals’ lives as well as assist the people who love them. Programs include life-saving medical care, off-site adoption events, animal rescue, pet retention and pet bereavement workshops, foster homes, humane education, behavior advice, affordable spay/neuter, and a network of approximately 200 partnering rescue groups.
