September 17—Doniphan County Pet Rescue is hosting its Dogtober! Paws for a Cause Dog Walk from 2-6 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 2 in Bendena, Kansas.
All funds raised will go directly to Pet Rescue to benefit the animals.
The event includes a drive on the mostly level paved road that passes Pet Rescue’s new location at 887 Friendship Road in Bendena. Participants can bring a dog on a leash to walk, walk without a dog, or contact Pet Rescue to make arrangements to walk with a shelter dog. Various distances will be marked out on the four-mile route, and people walking can choose how far they want to go.
The registration fee for the Paws for a Cause dog walk is $20 per adult and $10 for children 12 and under. People who register before September 20 will receive a t-shirt with a special design. To register, visit the Doniphan County Pet Rescue Facebook page and click the link or call Pet Rescue at 913-370-3297 to register by phone. Registrations will be accepted until the event.
Other activities taking place in addition to the walk include rabies vaccinations for pets from 2-4 p.m. for $7, and the Pet Rescue will be offering other annual vaccinations free of charge through a grant from Petco. In addition, agility equipment will be installed and there will be a talent show after the walk.
There will also be hot dogs, fries and drinks available after the walk.
