Regina pups raising money for the Humane Society
The Regina Humane Society has a few more dollars in its pockets after Sunday’s 21st annual Dog Jog.
The sun was shining for the dog and owner pairs at Wascana Park.
“It’s an exciting event because… it’s just a great opportunity for people to get out and go for a walk around the lake, but with their dogs and all these other dog owners,” said Don Simons, director of communications for the Regina Humane Society.
The event is held to raise money to help support the Humane Society and its animals.
But Simons said the walk also helps raise awareness.
“It reminds people that have dogs from the Humane Society, or just that have dogs in general, that there are other dogs owners out there and they think the same things as you; they’re supportive of the dog community, they’re supportive of the Humane Society.”
One man who was there said he got his dog, “Puff,” from the Humane Society five years ago, so he attends the walk to help support them.
The Dog Jog is one of the society’s biggest fundraisers, they hoped to raise over $50,000 this year.
