Dog-lovers, get out your calendars and save the date for the annual Lab Rescue Dog Walk in Annapolis. The 2.25-mile walk raises money for the nonprofit Lab Rescue organization, which last year rescued 904 dogs. The goal this year is to raise $50,000 so the group can continue to have a big impact in helping vet and find foster and permanent homes for homeless labs.
Carol Lagundo, VP of Lab Rescue, says they are expecting more than 250 owners and more than 150 dogs at this year’s walk.
To participate, register at the Lab Rescue site, and start getting those pledges. Then head to Park Place in historic Annapolis June 2. The walk is from noon to 3 p.m. If you raise $50 in pledges, you’ll get an event T shirt. For $100 in pledges you’ll also get a tote bag — and if you can bring in $200 or more you’ll get the T, tote and a water bottle.
As the Lab Rescue people say, it’s a great way to have fun with your best friend and save lives.
