Participants invited to register, raise money, and walk between Aug. 7-9 to support homeless animals; register by July 22 to get a T-shirt
Due to COVID-19 concerns, the Kentucky Humane Society is changing its annual Waggin’ Trail Walk for the Animals to a virtual event. This means participants can choose to walk in their own neighborhoods, at a nearby park or even on a treadmill at home to help KHS save more lives.
“While this year’s event will be different from years past, the goal remains the same: to celebrate the companion animals in our lives and to raise money to care for thousands of needy animals who will come to the Kentucky Humane Society this year,” said Alisa Gray, KHS Vice President of Outreach.
Those who register by July 22 will get a free Waggin’ Trail T-shirt. Participants are encouraged to register at kyhumane/waggin-trail, invite family and friends to donate toward their fundraising goals, and then take a walk between August 7-9. Participants can join as individuals or as teams.
KHS will host a Facebook Live celebration at 10 a.m. August 9 and is encouraging participants to share their walk photos on social media using the hashtag #waggintrail.
Waggin’ Trail is presented by Hill’s Pet Nutrition. The Matching Gift Sponsor is VCA Animal Hospitals. Other sponsors include Feeders Supply, Purrfect Day Café, MetLife Pet Insurance, Oxmoor Toyota and Park Community Credit Union.
KHS is encouraging participants to shop local by visiting their Virtual Vendor Village online.
“We are grateful to have so many wonderful businesses who are joining us for our virtual Waggin’ Trail. Even though we can’t meet in person, we can stand together to help animals in need,” said Gray.
