Evanston dog owners to strut their stuff

May 7, 2013 by  

‘Strut for Strays’ is an annual event during which dogs and their owners walk for three miles to raise funds to care for hundreds of animals and to find homes for those that need a loving family.

It should offer a great time for the whole family, including the members with four paws. Flyer printing, poster printing, and banner printing were most likely used to remind people of this fundraising event in this community and the surrounding districts.

The walk begins at the Ladd Arboretum at the corner of Bridge Street and McCormick Blvd. and follows a scenic path situated along the North Shore Channel, and then continues south to Dempster Street, with the water station being the turning point in the walk.

The walk is voluntary and guests may return to the starting point at any time, especially if they or their dogs are struggling to complete it. After the walk, all guests are invited to enjoy the ‘Doggie Carnival’, where they will find plenty of friendly animals, animal supplies, and refreshments to wet their whistles. Parking is not allowed at the Ecology Center lot, although there are plenty of places to leave a vehicle in the Arboretum lot and along the side streets should the lot be filled. The Doggie Carnival and event location can be found by walking in the Rotary Friendship Garden towards the Arboretum. Just look for the white tents.

Admission to this event is free, although donations will be gratefully accepted. The Strut for Strays walk will be occurring on Saturday, May 11, at the Ladd Arboretum in Evanston, Illinois. To find out times, please visit the C.A.R.E website or call the office during business hours.
