These paws were made for walkin'

On Saturday May 9 the San Diego Humane Society (SDHS) held its annual Walk for Animals event at NTC Park in Liberty Station. UPP there to support them in their efforts to raise funds for this terrific organization. We were able to display our beautiful products and help animals in need, two of our favorite things!

Mother Nature threatened to rain on the walkers as she had done the day before and early that morning.  But no such luck…by time the walkers gathered for the 9am trek around the park, the clouds parted and the sun emerged.  Everyone was fueled up with yummy pancakes, hot coffee and great live music provided by SDHS volunteers. The enormous crowd of SDHS supporters started through the gate, receiving encouragement from cheer squads to bystanders.  It is always a pleasure and an honor to participate in events that support the well-being of animals, especially those that need loving forever homes and to be called someone’s pet.

Meet Hiro! He was recently surrendered to a rescue group following a divorce. He is completely domesticated and extremely lovable. Like Hiro, many dogs end up in shelters at no fault of their own. Help us spread the word about pets like Hiro who are looking for a second chance at life by supporting pet adoption.
