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!
The walk begins!
Many more follow.
The trip around the pond is fun.

"Hey, what's this over here?"
Trying to get a group photo of HSCI alumni dogs was a lot like taking family photos during the holidays!
Lots of smiles.
The dogs were very well behaved. So were the humans!
Ready for a pose.
