GILLETTE, WY—May 1, 2017--Fur Kids Foundation is proud to announce its first ever The Fast and the FURriest Fun Walk at Dalbey Memorial Park in Gillette, Wyoming! The fun walk fundraiser takes place on Saturday, June 3 to help kick off Pet Appreciation Week, held June 4-10.
This fun walk allows families to get out together for some quality time with their pooch. Participants receive a pet-tastic medal, can be entered for some paw-some Hurrta swag, and can tell the Foundation why they appreciate their dog the most on some Pet Appreciation Boards!
Registration starts at 7:30 am at the Edward Shelter, with the walk beginning at 8 am. Participants can walk their pets for one, two or three laps around Dalbey Memorial Park.
Registering the day of the event will cost $15—save $5 by pre-registering by Tuesday, May 30. Dogs and children under the age of 12 are free. Advance registration is helpful to Fur Kids Foundation, but participants may register onsite. Register online at: www.furkidsfoundation.org/fast-and-the-furriest.html.
