Don’t miss the 33rd Annual Walk for Cats on Sunday, October 4th at 11 am. This year features an updated route, face-painting for children and adults after the walk, and Green Tours at 12 and 12:30 pm.
Post-walk activities also include Dr Cynthia Olsen, Illinois Director of The Paw Project, and The Critter Corral Guinea Pig Rescue. The Paw Project educates the public about why declawing is inhumane, and advocates campaigns to legally ban declawing at the community and state level. Critter Corral was founded in 1999 to find homeless and unwanted Guinea Pigs new, loving homes. Their volunteers can answer questions about the care of a guinea pig, and introduce guests to some of their guinea pigs.
Every registered walker receives a Walk t-shirt designed by Jeanie Ramos. You can register online or mail in the completed form with your payment. Registration is $30 in advance or $35 on the day of the event.
