NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. – Registering online for the 2014 Hounds on the Sound walk before Aug. 31 will allow participants to be entered into a drawing for $25 worth of raffle tickets to be used the day of the event.
The Hounds on the Sound walk will be held Sunday, Oct. 19, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at Glen Island Park.
The event will consist of a 1.5-mile walk on a path bordering the Long Island Sound followed by a park festival featuring vendors, refreshments, music, activities for kids, dog contests and more. Dogs and cats will be available for adoption.
The pledge walk was organized by the New Rochelle Humane Society and Pet Rescue to raise funds for animals in need. Proceeds will benefit these organizations and the Mount Vernon shelter.
Participants can register to walk with up to two dogs or on their own. The organizers encourage walkers to reach out to as many friends and family members for sponsorship. People also can register to walk as teams.
Walkers who raise $100 or more will receive Hounds on the Sound T-shirts. To guarantee shirt size, register and send all completed forms and donations by Oct. 3.
All dogs participating must be leashed, licensed and current on all vaccinations. No retractable leashes or leashes longer than 6 feet are allowed.
Registration on the day of the event begins at 10 a.m. The walk begins at 11:30 a.m. The event will take place rain or shine.
