The Michigan Humane Society will be hosting four different walks as part of the larger event, "Mega March for Animals." Participating will help rescue, shelter and care for animals in need while helping said animals find good homes.
All walks are 2 miles long, with shorter routes available, and open to pets. Animals must be on-leash or in a carrier at all times, and walkers must be prepared to clean up after companion animals. Vaccination records for pets should be brought to the events, as they must be presented if asked for them; do not attach records to registration. Water will be provided for animals and walkers throughout the day; a small snack will be provided after the march.
Participants who register online will also be entered to win a one-year supply of dog or cat food from Purina. There is no cost to register, and attendance at the marches is not a requirement to win.
A march has already been held Sept. 12 in Woodhaven's Civic Center Park. All metro park locations require a $7 daily pass to enter. The events begin at 9 a.m. and finish at noon. The remaining locations for this year's Mega Marches are:
Belle Isle, Detroit
Kensington Metropark, Milford
Stony Creek Metropark, Shelby Township
