Welcome to my monthly "here's how you can help animals" post!
One of my favorite summer activities is charity run/walk/bike events. I've participated in the MS 150 for the past five or so years and, as bar exam prep is looking to get in the way of that this year, I've been looking for other events. So I decided to sign up for the Minnesota Humane Society's Walk for Animals!
I'll be honest, a big motivator to participate in this walk was that I now have a pup, and he will just about die of happiness at spending that much time around so many people and other dogs. But I urge you to sign up even if you don't have a dog to walk with. It promises to be an easy, 5 mile walk, with contests and prizes and other fun activities. And if you're currently lamenting this never-ending winter of ours (like me), the May 1 walk will be a great way to enjoy spring when it finally arrives!
The Animal Humane Society is a wonderful organization (it's where we got our two naughty kittens) that relies completely on adoption fees and fundraising for its funding. The Humane Society cares for 35,000 animals each year - your donation can do so much good!
