Three more events on Sunday

If you and your dog aren’t exhausted after Saturday’s activities, here are a couple things you can do on Sunday this weekend:

HART 5th Annual Dogwalk and Homecoming

Homeless Animal Rescue Team (HART) is celebrating its 20th birthday on Oct. 3 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Bull Run Regional Park Special Events Area at 7700 Bull Run Drive in Centreville, Va. There will be prizes for the top pledge-raisers, agility demonstrations, a Halloween costume contest, local vendors and goody bags for the first 200 registrants.

Paws for a Cause 3K Walk

Fairfax Pets on Wheels is hosting its 15th annual Paws for a Cause walk at noon at Weber’s Pet Supermarket in Fairfax, Va. I’ve done this walk a couple times before, it’s an easy stroll through a residential neighborhood and local trails, with treat stations for humans and dogs scattered throughout.

Registration is $20, and all participants get a Paws for a Cause t-shirt. You can register online or onsite. Weber’s is located at 11021 Lee Highway.
