Come out and participate in a three-mile or one-mile walk to help support the care and lives of the loving animals of Anderson Animal Shelter at their Walk4Animals benefit Saturday, October 12 beginning at 9am at Batavia Park District’s Peg Bond Center. Check –in will begin at 9am.

This is a fun filled event where there will be big dogs, little dogs, dogs in strollers, dogs in costumes, and more. Participants are encouraged to create a team or join one consisting of friends, family, clubs, co-workers, businesses, sports teams, organizations, schools, etc.
