    2015 Kentucky Humane Society Waggin’ Trail Hits Waterfront
    Print this page

    If you loved the Kentucky Humane Society’s (KHS) fundraising walk, the Waggin’ Trail, before, you may absolutely adore it this year.

    For the first time, the walk will be held at Waterfront Park, and live music, lots of food trucks (and beer!) and many more activities will make it into a true festival – one you can enjoy with your pets.

    May 16, at 10:00 a.m., the walk gets started for humans and leashed pets. Keep your eyes peeled for unusual animals – we once met a sweet pet pig on the Waggin’ Trail.

    You can register online, or beginning at 9:00 a.m. the day of the race, at the site. Individual registration is $25. If you get registered early, you can raise more money for the animals that the KHS serves by getting friends to sponsor and donate. Top pledge earners will win prizes, and you don’t have to be present to win them.

    But, you’ll definitely want to be there. Ghost Holler and Dick Chaney will be playing live music, plus check out contests for your pet, demonstrations by trick dogs, vendor booths and lots of food and drink along the Ohio.

    For an idea of how the funds from this annual event are used, see what the KHS can do with these dollar amounts:

    ·  $50 provides one day’s worth of food and water to 25 pets in our care.

    ·  $100 provides supplies for 10 surgeries in our high-quality, donor-supported SNIP clinic.

    ·  $250 provides a medical exam, vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery and micro-chip for one needy pet.

    ·  $500 pays for one heartworm positive dog to receive medication.

    ·  $1000 pays the bills to rehabilitate an abused or neglected pet.
