Walk to Raise Funds for Animal Welfare League

Hundreds of animal enthusiasts and their pets will pound the pavement this Saturday to support homeless animals at Arlington’s 18th annual Walk for the Animals.

The event will take place this Saturday, May 11, at Bluemont Park from 8:30 – 11:30 a.m. The walk is held to raise awareness and funds to benefit the hundreds of adoptable animals and community programs supported by The Animal Welfare League of Arlington.

Participants will leash up their pets and strap on their walking shoes for a three-mile walk or one-mile stroll through the park followed by a festival of entertainment.

The cost to register onsite is $40. For more information, visit
