Dogs Will Dash Downtown at See Spot Walk

Saturday, Oct. 6



Most individuals can be divided into two categories--dog people and cat people. Not to choose sides, but we're pretty sure there's a reason that nobody refers to cats as man's best friend, unless of course, that man happens to enjoy passive-aggressive felines who occasionally claw your face in the middle of the night for no damn reason.

So, for everyone aside from that man, be sure to bring your four-legged friend to the 20th annual celebration of See Spot Walk Saturday, Oct. 6. This one-mile stroll through Julia Davis Park begins promptly at 10 a.m., when children, adults, family, friends, co-workers and teams are encouraged to bring their pups to walk in support of Idaho Humane Society's homeless pet shelter.

Part of each registration fee directly benefits the Idaho Humane Society, but if that isn't enough puppy love for you, participants can make extra donations online as well, and invite friends and family to make pledges in their name. Basic registration is $20 for adults, $15 for children and FREE for four-legged friends. Participants will receive one T-shirt and a dog bandana.

Even if you're missing the most important part of the walk (your dog), you can still participate, and Idaho Humane Society has a finite number of shelter dogs that you can register to walk with. After the walk, dogs and their people can enjoy games and contests, cruise by microchip and vaccination booths, and meet some adorable canines up for adoption.
