It’s time once again for See Spot Walk, the annual dog celebration that attracts more than 3,000 canines (and their people) to Julia Davis Park each year in support of the Idaho Humane Society. Join us on Saturday, Oct. 7th, for a 1-mile fun walk, demonstrations, vendors, food, dog contests and more! Festivities kick off at 9 a.m. by the park’s Gene Harris Bandshell, and the walk begins at 10 a.m.
See Spot Walk, celebrating its 25th year, is the biggest dog walk in the state and one of the Idaho Humane Society’s largest fundraisers. Registration is open at www.seespotwalk.org and at the IHS shelter, 4775 Dorman St. in Boise. Everyone who registers for the event receives a T-shirt, a dog bandanna and an assortment of additional goodies.
The Idaho Humane Society is the largest and oldest animal welfare organization and veterinary charity in the state of Idaho. It is a private, nonprofit organization. In addition to advocacy and the many services it provides on behalf of animals, the Idaho Humane Society also contracts with local government to enforce state and local laws regarding the care and keeping of animals and to shelter stray pets. The open-admission facility took in more than 12,000 animals last year.
