The Washington Humane Society (WHS) will host its annual DC Walk for the Animals on Saturday, October 15, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Marie Reed Learning Center in Adams Morgan. Event registration is now open.

 

WHS is taking part in a national ASPCA Adoption Challenge to find homes for more animals than ever before during the months of August, September and October, and is encouraging the public to demonstrate the organization’s mantra—DC loves DC animals—by participating in this Walk to end pet homelessness in DC. Walkers are asked to raise funds in support of their efforts to benefit WHS; each participant can create a personal fundraising page on the DC Walk for the Animals website, www.dcanimalwalk.org.
