Parade of Paws 2014

If you’ve spent more than 30 seconds with me, you know that I am mildly obsessed with my dog, Handsome. He goes almost everywhere with me! But I am not the only one in love with my furry friend; we are all animal lovers at Reforming Indy. Just another reason I am slowly becoming obsessed with my job.IMG_4977

In addition to our love of animals is our commitment to giving back to the community, as much as we can. What better way to combine our love of fitness, animals, and service work than participating in a charity walk?!

Coming up on Saturday August 23rd is the Hamilton County Dog Day Afternoon from 2-7 PM. It will be held in the Nickel Plate District Amphitheater in Fishers. This brings a whole new meaning to the ‘Dog Days of Summer’, eh?

The main event will be the Parade of Paws. This is a walk that benefits the HumIMG_0272an Society for Hamilton County. The walk helps raise money for the shelter dogs and cats in need of life-saving medical care. Every life is precious and so many of the animals need a second chance at life, which is what the Survivor Program at the Humane Society is all about.

Registration for the walk begins at 12:45 and the walk starts at 1:30. After the walk you can hang around for face painting (Cat whiskers anyone?), snacks, and several local bands that will be taking the Woofstock Stage (I kid you not). A great Saturday filled with sun, fun, and pups! I can’t think of anything better.

To join the team and donate to the cause visit: https://www.crowdrise.com/paradeofpaws2014. You can set your own fundraising goal to try and reach or you can make a one-time donation. This is a really amazing cause that helps out the animals in our own community. We hope to see many of you at the Parade of Paws on August 23rd! If you have any questions or would like to get a group together to do the walk feel free to email me at Cat@RerformingIndy.com. Handsome and I can’t wait to meet all you awesome Indy-ans there!
