Walk for the Animals in Arlington May 14

More than 500 people and 300 dogs are expected at the 16th annual Animal Welfare League of Arlington’s Walk for the Animals on Saturday, May 14 at Bluemont Park.

Pre-registration is $25, onsite registration is $40. Pre-registered walkers get an event t-shirt and their dog gets a bandanna. Walkers can do either a three-mile walk or a one-mile stroll; both begin and end at the park. Check-in and onsite registration begins at 8:30 a.m., the walk starts at 9:30 a.m.

Walkers who raise $75 or more will receive rewards, and prizes will be given to the 100th, 250th and 500th participants. After the walk, there will be demonstrations, entertainment and vendor booths.

Anyone who’s ever gotten a rope burn from a flexi-leash will be happy to know they are not allowed at the event, dogs must be on fixed-length leashes.

The event will be held rain or shine. Bluemont Park is at 329 N. Manchester Street, Arlington, VA 22203.
