Paws for a Cause K-9 Strut - September 2003

The Paws for a Cause K-9 Strut is our annual Run for Fun, Walk, and Alumni Parade. This event is a great way to enjoy a nice Saturday morning, get some exercise, and best of all, support the wonderful pets at our Pet Adoption Center. The weather this year was overcast, but that did not dampen the enthusiasm!
