**PLEASE HAVE ALL DOGS PARTICIPATING IN THE WALK ON A FLAT LEASH AND NOT A FLEXI-LEASH**
The Animal Welfare League of Arlington would like you to join us in helping homeless animals in our community. On Saturday, May 12th, Arlington will go to the dogs when as many as 500 people and dogs participate in the League’s 17th Annual Walk for the Animals to raise money for homeless animals. Owner-accompanied dogs and dog-free humans of all ages will collect pledges and win prizes. Prizes are awarded to individuals, adult teams who raise the most money, kids’ teams, and more.
The morning will be full of fun including a 3-mile walk or 1-mile stroll, demonstrations by WOOFS! Dog Training Center and the Arlington County Sheriff's Department K9 Unit, and booths showcasing our generous sponsors!
The Walk for the Animals will be our main fundraising event for 2012 and we hope that it will be as big of a success as last year’s Walk, where we raised more than $90,000.
Please join us on Saturday, May 12, 2012 in Bluemont Park (329 N. Manchester Street, Arlington, VA 22203). Registration open at 8:30am and the walk begins at 9:30am.

Please note: Walk pre-registration will close at 5:00pm on Friday, May 11th. Day-of registration will open at 8:30am on Saturday, May 12th. Day-of registration for adults will be $40 per adult.
