A 5K Walkathon begins at the shelter and then heads to the lakefront to raise awareness about the plight of community cats, promote spay/neuter and adoption, and to raise money to help Tree House care for special-needs cats. About 100 or more folks will march and chant, "Love your cat!" Not sure the kind of security will be required that was for NATO - few helicopters above. But mice will run in terror.
This is a dog friendly event! So, finally - a chance for dogs to help the cats.
If it's hot, please remember dogs are inefficient at cooling off - it's very important to bring water. (If it's VERY hot, your dog may be happier left at home).
