Last week, we grabbed our leashes and headed south from the U-District to Seward Park, to participate in the 15th Annual Furry 5K.
This fantastic event is a fundraiser for the Seattle Animal Shelter, which takes in approximately 6,000 stray and owner-surrendered animals each year. Because so many of these animals are in need of significant vet and behavioral care, the Seattle Animal Shelter created the Help the Animals Fund in 1977. Two-legged and four-legged friends walked and ran together around the park, enjoying views of Lake Washington all along the way.
Hopefully you were able to stop by the Pillar Properties tent, where Regan, Megan and Genevieve were handing out treats.
Overall the Furry 5K was a huge success and our residents who participated not only got to support a great cause, they spent a gorgeous day outside with other animal lovers.
If you missed the walk, but want to support the Help the Animals Fund, you still can. Just visit this donation form.
