Furry Fursday: Meet Barcode!

February 11, 2016


Barcode is energetic, sweet and an overall great dog to have by your side. This two-year-old Labrador Retriever mix loves to run around and play with both humans and other doggies. Throw him a ball, he will go fetch. Call him over and he will run right to you. He also loves to give his human lots of love and kisses. Barcode is the perfect canine companion for an active family looking for unconditional love from a precious pup!



Walk for the Animals

 There are less than two weeks until the Humane Society of Greater Miami’s biggest and most exciting annual community event, Walk for the Animals! On Saturday, February 27, 2016, more than 3,000 people and their canine companions will gather at Bayfront Park for a day filled with fun and exciting activities for the whole family, all to benefit the homeless dogs and cats of Miami.


At the Walk for the Animals, going the extra mile to support our furry friends is literally a “walk in the park!” Starting at 8:30AM, people and doggies of all ages will enjoy a morning filled with entertainment, including a one mile walk around beautiful Bayfront Park, fun games, exciting raffles and greatly amusing people and doggie contests like the “Look-Alike” and “Best Kisser” contests. There will be activities for children to take part in at the Kid’s Area, which will have a bounce house, “Paw”casso prints and even a mini petting zoo with many adorable, baby animals, hosted by the Zoological Wildlife Foundation.

Your pooch will have a dog-gone good time at the Doggie Fun Zone, where he or she will become an instant track star without any prior experience. This enclosed doggie racetrack gives your dog the chance to try something new and fun while dazzling the crowd with his/her athletic skills and agility! Finally, you definitely will not want to miss an entertaining performance by the incredible Purina Pro Plan Performance Team. Watch these amazingly talented and athletic canines perform incredible flying routines!


This event is a great fundraising event to help all of the doggies and kitties in need! A donation of $50 or more will earn supporters a Walk t-shirt, goodie bag with many wonderful treats for you and your furry friend and the opportunity to participate in the 2016 Walk for the Animals as a proud registrant. And when you fundraise, there is so much more to enjoy. The top three fundraisers will win great prizes: 3rd place prize is a gift card to the Grand Lux Café, 2nd place prize is a one-night stay at the Mandarin Oriental hotel and the 1st place prize is a 60” LED Samsung Smart TV! Fundraising just got even more rewarding!
