Walk for the Animals
Saturday, February 22, 2014 from 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM (PST)
WALK FOR THE ANIMALS is Humane Society of Greater Miami’s largest annual community fundraiser. More than 4,000 animal lovers will gather together on Saturday, February 22, 2014 for a morning filled with fun activities for dogs and the people they own! This year we will be adding an “adoption center” to the event where local rescue groups are invited to bring their adoptables so many loving and permanent homes can be found. We are honored to have Commissioner Sally A. Heyman as our Grand Marshall and NBC6 meteorologist, Ryan Phillips, will emcee the event for the sixth year.
Registration opens at 8:30 a.m. and entertainment will be provided from 9:00 a.m. until noon. Our Adoption Arena, presented by Pet Supermarket, will host several rescue groups with a great number of adorable puppies, kittens, dogs and cats looking for a forever home. Sponsors will be offering music, games, prizes, product samples, and great food. There will be a special Bakery Tent filled with mouth-watering pastries to be enjoyed with a fabulous cup of Coffee Brake coffee. YUM! The one-mile stroll around the park (with or without a dog) begins at 10 a.m.

When & Where
Humane Society of Greater Miami
The Humane Society of Greater Miami has been helping homeless animals in Miami-Dade County since 1936. Today, more than 300 homeless dogs, cats, puppies and kittens each day are cared for at the Soffer and Fine Adoption Center in North Miami Beach. We are able to give these animals a second chance by providing tender loving care, a good meal, shelter and medical care for as long as it takes to find them homes with kind, responsible and committed caregivers.
The organization works diligently at creating a more kind, just and loving community for the pets and people of Miami-Dade County. We offer programs and services to educate, inform and inspire people to take responsible care of their pets and treat animals with the kindness they deserve. With the support of people from across Miami-Dade County, we are helping to create a better community for all.
