Volunteers participating in the 19th annual FM Humane Society Paws walk are now collecting donations for the Fargo humane society.
Money raised will help care for the animals that stay at the humane society until they find forever homes.
A 15-minute fun walk is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Sept. 12 at the main shelter in Lindenwood Park (1701 Fifth St. S., Fargo) for all volunteers and their pets. Donations will be collected prior to the walk.
The walk will take place rain or shine. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. Ace and I took part in the walk last year. Tons of dogs showed up and it’s so much fun!
A group of friends and I are gathering donations for the FM Humane Society. If you would like to donate, you may do so by clicking on the PayPal button below. Any amount is appreciated!
If you would like to raise money for the Fargo humane society yourself, go ahead and start collecting donations now and register in person on the day of the walk. Participate as an individual or as a team. Checks can be made out to the FM Humane Society or FMHS.
You can always send donations directly to the FM Humane Society at any time through the donation page on its web site.
A silent auction, refreshments and prizes will be available at the Paws Walk. Proceeds from the silent auction will be used for spaying and neutering the animals at the humane society.
Our tan tabby cat Beamer came from the humane society. The staff there also helped direct me to the right dog when I adopted Ace, even though I did not end up adopting a dog directly from the humane society.
