June 5 Whitby 5km Walk/Run To Benefit The Humane Society Of Durham Region

June 5th, 2011 Sandro Avila (from Leash Out Pet Photography) will be involved in the Intact Insurance Furry Friends 5k run event and will be bringing along some friends and their 4 legged kids! We alone can only make a small step in helping this important cause of helping the Humane Society of Durham Region with the cost of their rebuild, the pet community needs you!

This is a day you will not want to miss.

Run or walk along the Whitby waterfront trail with or without your furry friend to raise funds for the Humane Society of Durham Region.  To learn more about this cause please read more.  To register or to donate please visit www.furryfriends5k.ca

Two years ago, the shelter was destroyed by a tragic fire. Recently a new shelter has been built and is designed to be an inviting place of hope, love and life for both animals and people. There is enough space to house more animals in a physically and mentally healthy environment. There are indoor/outdoor dog runs, an off-leash play area for the dogs, communal cat living with access to a safe enclosed outside area for exercise and fresh air, facilities to meet the needs of many animals.

They are not a government organization and are not affiliated in any way with Animal Control. They receive no tax dollars or regular government funding. They rely solely on donations from the public and money raised through fundraising events and adoptions.

The Humane Society of Durham Region is a charitable community resource, dedicated to protecting and providing temporary shelter and comfort to all animals in need and promoting adoptions and re-homing for unwanted, abused, neglected and abandoned animals. They promote humane treatment of all living things and work within the law to respond to and investigate complaints of cruelty and neglect.

Many animals enter the shelter through the Investigations Department and their Agents are on the road constantly responding to calls about animals in distress. They need the help of the public to continue this important work.

The Humane Society of Durham Region is a registered charity and issues official tax receipts for donations. All donations are used solely for the animals in their care.
