Dogs of all breeds and sizes will be decked out in superhero costumes this Saturday, October 19th for the 21st Annual Wiggle Waggle Walk for Woods.
Woods Humane Society is putting on this popular and fun event at Mitchell Park from 8am-12pm tomorrow. Be sure to get there at 9am sharp to catch the creative canine outfits during the Superhero Costume Contest and Halloween Costume Contest.
Admittedly, Blue Roo is pretty disappointed that he can’t enter… but he’s still excited for all of his pals to rock the walk!
The actual 1 mile Pledge Walk begins at 10:30 and goes through downtown San Luis Obispo for all to enjoy. If you have a pet that you wish to enter you can register beginning at 8am. For more information click here.
These adorable animals don’t have to be the only heroes around… you can be one, too!
October is National Adopt-a-Shelter Dog month and Woods has been celebrating as more and more dogs go home to loving, caring families.
Cory Karpin, Executive Director at Woods Humane Society, says that most animals end up in shelters by no fault of their own. These perfect pets simply had owners with schedule changes, plans to move, etc. Each dog up for adoption at Woods has had a complete medical evaluation, worked with a professional trainer on staff, and is ready to be welcomed into a new life.
“We have some particularly amazing dogs right now,” Karpin said.
Canela, the designated Canine Education Dog, is three years old and loves kids. Her best friend from her former home was a cat.
Finn, who was found as a stray, gets acquainted with Blue Roo.
Mallory, our Marketing Intern, plays with Finn. Finn loves his treats and knows when that when he sits he’ll get one.
Of course, Blue Roo couldn’t let the dogs have all the fun! Here he is playing around with a toy from one of the adoption pods.
Woods provides adoption counseling during the process and requires an adoption fee of only $115.00.
“We want to make is as accessible for people as possible,” Karpin said.
But just because October is National Adopt-A-Shelter Dog month, that doesn’t mean this opportunity to change an animal’s life ends on November 1st… loving, sweet cats and dogs are available for adoption year-round!
Finn and the others are looking forward to seeing you!
