When & Where
Linnea Memorial Foundation
All proceeds from the Pet Walk and Adopt-a-thon will go to support the Linnea Memorial Foundation, which distributes contributions to various local pet charities. The foundation was created to honor and celebrate the generous, loving spirit of a young woman who was a passionate animal lover and advocate. Contributions carry on her dedication to saving and caring for animals and will help animals in need throughout Colorado. Linnea often said, “This animal needs a home, and we have a home,” which is a true testament to her amazingly giving heart and beautiful, generous spirit.
