New this year is the Family Fun Day featuring kids’ games, White Castle Magic Show, music, jugglers, pie throwing, balloon zoo supershow, pet photos and dog agility and obedience demonstrations. Guest hosts of the event are WCSH 6 News Center personalities Chris and Sharon Rose. Chris and Sharon will greet walkers and their dogs as well as families who come to enjoy the Family Fun Day.

Incentive prizes will be awarded for money collected and all proceeds from this event will go directly to support the animal shelter’s spay/neuter program. All animals adopted from the shelter, including puppies and kittens, are now sterilized before they leave for their new homes.
