(Neb.)-Cause For Paws 5K Strut Your Mutt Dog Walk Fundraiser

By: Chris Fankhauser Posted at: 09/28/2012 01:41 PM

(Chadron)-A fun event will be taking place in Chadron Saturday morning for animal lovers.  The Strut Your Mutt fundraiser will begin with registration at 9 am behind the Physical Activity Center at Chadron State College, and a 5K walk at 10, with all proceeds going to the Northwest Nebraska Humane Society Cause for Paws. The cost is $5 per dog.
 
Organizer Erica Jankovits said the funds raised will go to help build a dog park in Chadron, as she sees the need for dogs in the community to become more socialized, which will help displace aggression. During the event, Jankovits will be available to help dog owners with training or behavior advice. She said there will also be homemade dog treats, and dogs in need of adoption will also be on hand.
 
Jankovits involvement with the Humane Society started with walking dogs, then dog fostering, and she discovered the huge issue of animals without homes. Now, she works with dogs quite a bit, and wants to do her part to help animals. She said that a lot of pets in the area need adopted, and also medical care prior to finding a home. This is another cost that fundraising will help with, as well as possibly future low-cost spay and neuter clinics or other adoption events.
 
If anyone would like more information on the Humane Society or adopting an animal, they can contact Jankovits at 308-430-0944, or check out the Northwest Nebraska Humane Society Facebook Page.
