Now more than ever, you are needed to donate your old blankets, towels, and sheets to your local animal shelter. With financial cut-backs, repairs on shelters are often put off, so if it's drafty, the animals suffer. I know my shelter uses rags to stuff under doors. No kidding! Empty out those closets... this is your chance to get rid of stuff and do something useful!

The Sponsors and planners:
The success of this event depends on the number of walkers who participate and collect pledges. Because it is a pledged walk, it is important to ask family, friends, co-workers and neighbors to sponsor you. All walkers will receive a bandana for their dog. Walkers who raise over $100 will receive a Hounds on the Sound T-shirt!
