An important note on pet safety
This winter, when you take a walk with your pet, please be sure to clean your pet's paws after each walk outdoors. If your pets lick ice melt, rock salt, and antifreeze from their paws, it can make them very sick or even kill them. Thank you!

You and your pet can help support your favorite animal causes by just getting out and taking a walk!
Walk for a Dog and ResQWalk are helping animals one step at a time. By downloading their smartphone apps, you and your best friend can take a walk and support you favorite animal cause at the same time! It's easy to do, and the walks are good for you and your best friend.
