Walk or run for the animals and help change lives.
Join the seventh annual Barkfest and Rover Romp 3K and 5K walk/run on Saturday, Aug. 25, from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at Roegner Park, 601 Oravetz Road SE. Proceeds help lost, abandoned and homeless animals at the Auburn Valley Humane Society.
Bring your dog for the walk/run and enjoy demonstrations, a vendor village of booths, dog contests, an inflatable obstacle course, adoptable pets and other activities. The Rainier Agility Team will perform and Muttsical chairs will entertain.
Participants are encouraged to collect pledges prior to the event. Money raised will help the AVHS provide medical care, food, shelter and veterinary care for more than 2,000 animals that are lost, abandoned or homeless in the Auburn community.
There is no fee to register. Sign up online at BarkfestRR2018 or contact the AVHS at 253-249-7849.
