NORWICH – Did someone say “walk?” The Chenango SPCA hosts its third annual Dog Walk and Alumni Parade fundraiser Sunday at Weiler Park from noon to 3 p.m. Proceeds will be used exclusively to shelter and feed homeless animals. The event is open to anyone interested, but the SPCA wishes to extend a special invitation to owners of dogs adopted from the Norwich shelter, said organizer Tracy Carman.
The event has “no admission fee, anyone can come and walk their dog if they want to,” said Carman. But she reminds participants to “please keep in mind, this is a fundraising event for Chenango SPCA.” Attendees are encouraged to get pledges from the community sponsoring them for the one-mile walk around the park.
“Even just a $5 pledge is appreciated,” said SPCA President Courtney Sullivan. Prizes are awarded to the top fundraisers and the person or team that raises the most will win a custom-engraved trophy with their name on it, along with the placement of their picture in the dog walk hall of fame, and a special tour of the SPCA facility.
