Fundraising walk at Liberty Station to benefit San Diego Humane Society
The San Diego Humane Society is inviting pet owners and their furry companions to participate in the 29th annual Walk for Animals on Saturday, May 6, in NTC Park at Liberty Station in Point Loma to raise funds to help homeless pets, rescue animals and injured wildlife.
Organizers say they hope the event will raise at least $320,000. Activities will kick off with a pancake breakfast at 7 a.m., with the walk set to begin at 9 a.m. It typically is the San Diego Humane Society’s largest fundraiser of the year.
About 5,000 walkers and nearly 1,000 dogs participated in last year’s event, which raised nearly $300,000, said Humane Society spokeswoman Nina Thompson. In addition to the walk, there will be dog activities, music and vendor booths.
“Every dollar we raise helps us be there for the 40,000 animals who will come through our doors this year,” Gary Weitzman, president and chief executive of the San Diego Humane Society, said in a statement.
