Five Reasons to Participate in the 2010 IAMS Wiggle Waggle Walkathon!

The Ottawa Humane Society’s 22nd annual Wiggle Waggle Walkathon is this Sunday, September 12th. If you haven’t already signed up to attend, here are five great reasons you should join in the fun:

1. DOGS. Do you love dogs? Then the Wiggle Waggle Walkathon is the place to be! From little to big, from mutts to purebreds, there are literally hundreds of different dogs to be seen! Check out the photos from last year's event.

2. If you raise pledges, you’re eligible to win some great prizes! Depending on how much you raise, you get a doggy bandana, HBC gift cards, a free Puppy Picasso painting, a free pet portrait print, and ballots to the grand prize (Hot Air Balloon Adventure for 4 people with Sundance Balloons donated by CTV and $150 Baton Rouge gift certificate)! Visit our WWW Incentives page for more information.

3. The Family Fun Zone. Kids of all ages will enjoy a colouring contest, face painting, bubbles, mascots and more in the Family Fun Zone.

4. The K-9 Fun Zone. See amazing agility demos and let your dog run, jump, weave and show you that anything is possible. Find out more about Skijor / Canicross and get your dog’s photo taken as a sled dog.

5. Help the animals! The WWW raises funds for the OHS Emergency Animal Protection Services (EAPS) team. They rescue animals in distress, investigate cases of abuse and neglect and provide emergency transportation for injured and sick stray animals in Ottawa.

Please lend your support to keeping the animals of Ottawa safe and protected by collecting pledges for this year's Walkathon. With your help, we can make a positive difference in our community by making a difference in the lives of its animals.

We look forward to seeing you this Sunday!
