Anne Arundel SPCA’s Dogged Fundraising
Wagging, walking, running and smooching for a good cause
They came out in packs.
Some walked or ran on two legs, some on four, to raise $180,000 at the Anne Arundel SPCA’s most successful Walk for the Animals April 7 at Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis.
Two walking trails — one mile and two-and-a-half-miles — plus the new Tails & Trails 5K drew 184 humans and more than 50 dogs.
In the 5K, the first three two-legged and four-legged runners to cross the finish line won prizes.
A doggie kissing booth, pony rides, a doggie acupuncturist, contests and a pet whisperer helped the shelters surpass its $175,000 goal.
High-pawing is in order for this happy tail.
