Furry Fursday: Meet Ilsa

Want a buddy who will run, swim and play with you?

Meet Ilsa!

Ilsa is a 6 month old American Bulldog mix who was surrendered to our shelter by her family, who could not keep her because they were moving to a place that did not accept pets. Ilsa is a fun little girl who loves running, playing with stuffed toys and bouncy balls and swimming! She is a curious girl who loves to be social and meet new people and doggies, and she will show you affection once you meet her. She is already partially housetrained and knows some commands like “sit,” “stay,” and “get down.” Her previous owner notes that she is “super smart and super loyal.” What more can you ask for in a canine companion?


Walk for the Animals!

The most exciting annual community event, Walk for the Animals, makes its way back to Miami for another fabulous morning on Saturday, March 4, 2017. 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. Whether you register to walk as an individual, with your family or together with your school, club or other social group as a “pack,” you will definitely have a great time at this walk for a great cause!

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. 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! There will also be much more fabulous entertainment for both humans and doggies to enjoy.

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 2017 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, which makes fundraising for this event even more rewarding!
