Calling all dogs for a cause

WHITTIER – The dog days of fall are coming to Whittier.
Bring your best four-legged friends to the Palm Park trailhead, 5703 Palm Ave., from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013 and attend the popular “Paws 4 a Cause” fundraiser aimed to help establish a dog park in Whittier.
“Paws 4 a Cause,” a subcommittee of the Whittier Community Foundation, is a nonprofit organization supporting programs benefitting Whittier. This year’s event will raise money to add amenities to a pending Dog Park.
Enjoy a canine 3-K walk/run, a “Mini-Mutt March” shorter run for smaller and/or older dogs, a Dog Fashion Show, an obstacle course, photos with Officer McGruff, the crime dog, and demonstrations from police K-9 groups. A pet faire will showcase pet adoption groups and other nonprofit animal services and pet vendors.
There is a $15 fee to participate in all activities with additional canines costing $5 each. Dogs must be leashed, under control and have all necessary immunizations.
