Miami Supports Walk For The Animals
Bayfront Park was an exciting and worthwhile place for the entire family – and dogs, as the Walk for the Animals, presented by Pet Supermarket took place. The Walk is the Humane Society of Greater Miami’s largest annual community event, attracting over 3,000 people. Sally A. Heyman, District 4 Miami-Dade County Commissioner was this year’s Grand Marshall. The Leader of the Pack was Associate Vice President and Controller of University of Miami, Theresa L. Ashman, and for the fourth year, the event’s emcee was WTVJ – NBC-6 meteorologist, Ryan Phillips.
The day was filled with fun activities for the entire family and their furry friends. Sponsors offered offering music, games, prizes, product samples, and great food. There was a special Bakery Tent filled with mouth-watering pastries to be enjoyed with a fabulous cup of Coffee Brake coffee. YUM!
“Every dollar raised from the Walk goes toward sheltering more than 300 homeless cats and dogs in our care every day. In addition, the funds help support our spay/neuter services, quality adoptions, humane education and pet therapy,” said Donna Tallon, Executive Director of The Humane Society of Greater Miami.
The Humane Society of Greater Miami is dedicated to placing every dog and cat into a loving home, and to promoting responsible pet ownership and spay/neuter programs.
