About every 8 seconds, an unwanted animal is euthanized in the United States. Wouldn’t it be great if you could help save hundreds of unwanted puppies and kittens in Cabarrus County from a life of abuse, neglect and abandonment? YOU CAN!
Cabarrus Pets Society, The Humane Society of Concord and Greater Cabarrus County, The Cabarrus Spay/Neuter Clinic, and Cabarrus County Animal Control are joining together to host the Walk For Paws benefit. We invite you to come out to Frank Liske Park and walk with us on November 6, 2010. We have planned a fun-filled event complete with food, vendors, educational demonstrations, and more! Festivities will begin at 11:00 am. 100% of the proceeds from the walk will benefit the Furball Fund, which will be used to spay and neuter pets of families who otherwise could not afford it.
We thank you for your prior donations of time, money, ideas, and words of encouragement. Your faithful support has allowed us to help numerous animals in need. Can we count on you to support us in the Walk For Paws, all in the name of animals?
Here’s how you can help:
Come walk with your family, pets, or team. Get a t-shirt, share in the camaraderie, and feel great knowing that you helped save an animal’s life
“Spay It Forward”: A $75.00 donation will spay or neuter one dog or cat in need
If you choose, collect pledges from family, friends, and co-workers
Walk in Honor or Memory of a beloved pet or loved one and have their name added to our Wall of Hearts
Please review the Registration and Pledge Forms. For your convenience, you may pre-register by October 25, 2010, to qualify for a $5.00 “early bird’ discount. Registration will also be accepted on the actual morning of the event.
Spay/neuter is the only proven way to reduce pet overpopulation, ensuring that every pet has a family to love them. Together we can help the dogs and cats of our community, and their people too!
Remember donations are tax deductible.
