The 35th Annual Walk for Animals
This year’s Walk for Animals will once again be held at the tried and true Dillant-Hopkins Airport and for the first time will feature a live band!
Our Vendor Village will be bigger and better than ever with many local and national businesses selling just about everything your furry companion could want, and a few things you might just need for yourself! Along with the amazing merchandise there will be delicious foods available from several regional food trucks. As always there will be fun raffle baskets to take a chance on winning, dog activities and demonstrations, good times to be had. Another new first this year will be a non-alcoholic mock-tail tent with scrumptious beverages suitable for all ages and even some dog safe savory sips for your canine companions.
Gates open at 9:00 AM, the walk starts at 10:00 AM and festivities continue through 2:00 PM. The Walk for Animals is a crowdfunding event. In the weeks leading up to the Walk itself, animal lovers in the community ask family, friends, coworkers, colleagues – everyone they know – to sponsor them. All money raised goes towards the care of the homeless animals in our community. Once you’ve registered, you can begin to fundraise online at www.mhswalkforanimals.com or download and print a Walk sponsor form from the site. If you can’t participate but would like to support the Walk for Animals, please visit www.mhswalkforanimals.com to donate. All money raised from this event goes directly to the care of the animals at MHS!
Our mission here at Monadnock Humane Society is to strengthen the animal-human bond by promoting and providing for the well-being of animals. This is 100% funded by the generosity of people within the communities we support. Contrary to what many mistakenly believe, MHS receives NO FUNDING for our shelter operations when you donate to national animal welfare organizations such as ASPCA, The Humane Society of the United States. Nor do we receive funding from any national, state or local government agency.
Proceeds from Walk for Animals goes towards the MHS mission and makes vital lifesaving differences for thousands of shelter animals each year, and supports the people who love them. Your support makes it possible to provide pets in need with safe shelter, medical care, rescue and rehabilitation, boarding and daycare, training services, a pet food pantry, Animal Safety Net program, and most importantly, loving forever homes.
