Despite the downpour right in the middle of the event, “Paws for a Cause” turned out to be a great success. Thanks to an amazing group of volunteers, we were able to get 37 dogs from the Center for Animal Health and Welfare down to Hugh Moore Park, to spend a high-energy afternoon walking, running and socializing. They were able to play with each other as well as visit with potential adoptive families and Center alumni. They all seemed so happy to be out and about, which made it very difficult to bring them back to the Center at the end of the day.
