AWLA To Hold 16th Annual Walk for the Animals

The Animal Welfare League of Arlington is gearing up for its 16th annual Walk for the Animals.

The dog-centric fundraiser will be held this Saturday, May 14th, at Bluemont Park (329 N. Manchester Street). The actual “walk” will start at 9:30 a.m. — participants will have a choice of a three-mile loop walk or a one mile stroll. There will also be entertainment, sponsor booths and demonstrations of doggie feats.

Organizers expect about 500 walkers and 300 dogs to participate this year. Last year’s event raised more than $100,000 for the AWLA and its work with homeless animals.

Registration for the walk is $25 online and includes a free t-shirt and bandana. On-site registration on the day of the event is $40. Organizers ask that participants keep their dogs on a flat leash and leave other pets at home.
