Top Fundraiser, and Top Donor. 
General participants may begin

available for you and your dog 
but you should consider bringing 
your own water as temperatures 
may rise throughout the event” 
organizers said.

 There will also be a Wiggle 
Waggle Walk and Expo starting 
at 8:00 a.m. until noon. 

 “It’s a day of fun for the whole

of animals--domestic, exotic, 
wildlife and livestock--cared 
for every year at the Pasadena 
Humane Society,” according to 
the organization. 

 All registered participants 
receive a t-shirt and a dog 
bandana. The more money you

organizers said.
