Walk for the Animals 

Walk for the Animals is the HSC’s annual 2K fundraising walk. This is a fun family walk for people and pets of all ages. Walk with your pet or on your own. You’ll have a great time and you’ll get a warm furry feeling by raising money to help the animals. Your walk registration fee and fundraising proceeds will help us to meet our event goal of $160,000. Come and walk!! The shelter pets will love you for it.
