“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
