One-mile walk by dogs and their people is part of a fun, family friendly afternoon to raise money for Delaware’s premiere no kill animal shelter and adoption center, featuring celebrity canine and special Walk Grand Marshall, Oogy.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
Tails Around the Tower, Delaware Humane Association’s 22nd Annual Walk for the Animals, will be taking place on October 7, 2012 from 10:30 am to 2:30 pm. This year animal lovers and DHA supporters will be gathering for DHA’s biggest fundraiser of the year at a new location in Wilmington, Rockford Park.
The approx. one-mile walk around the park by dogs and their people is just one part of this event—a four-legged celebrity, fun atmosphere, dressed-up dogs, music, refreshments, pet-friendly vendors, the always popular Pet Contests, and a moonbounce for the kids make this a perfect outing for the entire family.
We are very proud to be joined this year for photos and book signing by special Walk Grand Marshall Oogy and author Larry Levin! Oogy, the Dog Only a Family Could Love, is the New York Times-bestselling story of a puppy brought back from the brink of death, and the family he adopted.
Mike Rossi from WSTW will also be on hand to add his special brand of humor to the festivities, and adoptable dogs from DHA will be in attendance—who knows, you just might find yourself a new friend that you want to take home!
Proceeds from the Walk for the Animals support DHA’s mission as it is carried out throughout a four state area. In order to continue carrying out this mission, DHA needs your support for the Walk for the Animals. Walk as an individual, or gather your friends, family and coworkers to form a team!
