The 29th Annual Houston Humane Society K-9 Fun Run & Walk will take place Sunday, March 28 at Sam Houston Park, 100 Bagby.  This fun and beneficial event begins at 10 am, check-in opens at 8 am and activities end at 4pm. The event will also feature a doggy costume contest, an alumni walk, interactive activities, and much more! All proceeds raised go directly to the Houston Humane Society (HHS). 

"People participate for various reasons." said Sherry Ferguson, Executive

Director of the Houston Humane Society. "Some walk in memory for a pet they

loss, some run for abused animals, and some jog just to support HHS. It is

special to see the community band together for a common cause and raise

awareness for the animals."

All four legged family members and their two legged human companions can now sign up for a 1-mile competitive run, 1-mile non-competitive jog, or a

1-mile non-competitive walk. Whether you participant or not, you can help

raise funds by inviting friends and family to pledge.  Simply create a

pledge page online.   Visit http://www.houstonhumane.org for more

information. 

For more than 50 years, Houston Humane Society has helped thousands of

animals find loving homes. HHS also provides a low-cost wellness clinic to

the public 7 days a week for exams; vaccines and Houston's only $30

spay/neuter service. 

Registration is $20 before 3/13, $25 after and $30 race-day. $5 for

additional human companions.  Vendor and sponsorship opportunities are also

available. For more information visit www.houstonhumane.org , email
