Walk For The Animals – A Tail-waggin’ Success
More than 3,000 people came to Bayfront Park to walk for the homeless animals. It was a glorious day for the Humane Society of Greater Miami’s annual WALK FOR THE ANIMALS, raising almost $150,000 for the homeless animals in their shelter ; both families and their four-legged friends gathered for the one mile stroll at Bayfront Park. Dogs frolicked in pools after creating their own masterpieces from the Paw-casso Paw Print booth; children played games and got henna tattoos; and adults enjoyed music provided by 101.5 LiteFM and The Ticket. For everyone, there were yummy bagels and muffins at the Bakery Booth, entertaining vendor booths, and for those that needed a little pick me up – Commissioner Sally Heyman’s Coffee Break Van provided the ideal cup of coffee. For the first time ever, there was an Adoption Arena at the park, sponsored by Pet Supermarket, where 10 local rescue groups participated by bringing their kittens, puppies, dogs and cats to find a forever home. Twenty-one animals found new homes, including one bunny rabbit. For the fifth year, Ryan Phillips, Meteorologist for NBC6 was the emcee.
