Furry Friends Rescue Tail Waggin Walk

With a big heart, willing dedication and open arms, the Furry Friends Rescue has saved over 3,600 animals since they first began in 1998. Initially, Furry Friends Rescue started their program to find safe, loving and permanent homes for cats and dogs. However, over the years, they have grown and broadened their mission by providing veterinary needs, examinations, immunization and neutering to rescued animals. Furry Friends have a focus, that is, they want to create an alliance with the community to make them aware of stray cats and dogs in need of a place to stay, as well as forming partnerships with local organizations, veterinarians and shelters.

Furry Friends Rescue is holding a 3k walk at Lake Elizabeth in Central Park on Sept. 24. The "Tail Waggin" walk includes a fee of $35 for walk-in registration. Registration begins at 9 a.m. and the official walk begins at 10.a.m. This is Furry Friends Rescue's fourth annual walk to fund raise for abandoned dogs and cats across Northern California animal shelters.

Other festive activities include a raffle and silent auctions, and a dog contest featuring a costume and parade.
