The Houston SPCA's second annual iWalk for Animals is set for Sunday, November 11 at sunset. The event is a lifesaving venture that encourages animal-lovers across Houston and around the globe to “walk where they are” to help give orphaned, abused and neglected animals a second chance at life.
Walkers are urged to gather with friends and family, with or without their pets, at a location of their choice to support the protection and rescue efforts of all animals in the greater Houston area. Participants can register at iWalkforAnimals.org, individually or as teams, to help the voiceless victims of animal cruelty and neglect. Those who raise $100 or more will receive a limited edition iWalk for Animals t-shirt.
“We are very excited about the flexibility of the iWalk,” explained Patricia Mercer, president of the Houston SPCA. “We understand people are especially busy these days. With the iWalk, we want to offer a new, refreshing opportunity for people who love animals to enjoy a simple outdoor activity wherever they are while raising money to support animal protection and rescue."
The iWalk goal of $350,000 will help support the many life-saving programs of the Houston SPCA, including placement of all healthy animals, cruelty investigations, disaster relief efforts, the area’s only 24-Hour Injured Animal Rescue Ambulance, spay/neuter, humane education and more.
Last year, the Houston SPCA provided services to more than 100,000 animals.
