Central Brevard Humane Society event
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – The Central Brevard Humane Society will host the 12th Annual Paws in the Park event on Saturday, Oct. 25, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Wickham Park Main Pavilion in Melbourne, located on the grounds of Eastern Florida State College’s Melbourne Campus.
Admission and parking are free.
“This fun interactive pet fundraiser will kick-off with a quarter mile “dog” walk-a-thon around the Wickham Park Main Pavilion,” said Theresa Clifton, executive director of the Central Brevard Humane Society.
“People of all ages are encouraged to bring their four-legged friends along during the walk, but an animal friend is not required for participation.”
From the largest teams to individual walkers, everyone’s support is needed to help raise funds to care for the homeless animals of Brevard.
The top (3) walkers with the most pledge dollars will receive a “fabulous” prize, and the first (75) walkers with pledges of $20 or more receive a FREE “Paws in the Park” T-shirt.
Sponsorship forms for walkers are available for download at BrevardHumaneSociety.com
In addition to the walk-a-thon, the event will include the Pet Halloween Spooktacular Costume contest along with the Companion/Pet Look-a-like, Best Pet Trick, and King & Queen of the Park contests, a pet psychic, great food, a vendor village, pet massage therapy, rescue groups and “ask a vet tech” booth.
All animals must be on a leash and have proof of current shots along with a county tag.
All proceeds from this event will help to raise awareness and financial support for the unwanted and abandoned pets that visit the Humane Society’s Adoption Centers in Cocoa and Merritt Island each year, who need a safe and loving “forever” home.
