FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 9, 2017
Nearly 600 animal lovers and their pets gathered at Glow in the Park, Seattle Humane's 15th annual Walk for the Animals at Green Lake on Saturday, Oct. 7, raising $87,724.68! We are hoping to bridge the gap over the next few days as donations continue to come in to reach our goal of $100,000. These life-saving funds will support Seattle Humane’s Life-Saver Rescue Program and Disaster Fund, which helps transfer animals to us from other shelters that don’t have the resources to care for them. These donations also help care for and find homes for animals who come to us due to natural disasters like Hurricane Harvey. Donations can still be made here.
The highest fundraising team was "Strutt Your Mutt," raising $1,060. The top individual fundraiser was Seattle Humane's Director of Animal Services Juli Ross, raising $3,633.
After the 2.8 mile dog walk, the fun continued with vendor booths, raffles, photo booths, food carts, a beer garden, and a stage show featuring adoptable pets who all found homes of their own at the event!
