Canines to cruise canal Oct. 19

September 11, 2002

The Humane Society of Washington County asks dog owners to "move your paws for a great cause."

The Friends of the Humane Society, a group of volunteers who support the humane society's work, will again host Canines On The Canal in Williamsport to raise funds for the organization. The fifth annual dog walk and fund-raising event will be held Saturday, Oct. 19, at the C&O Canal National Historical Park at the Cushwa Basin.

The event will feature a three-mile walk, mayor of Williamsport canine look-alike contest and such games as doggie musical chairs and bobbing for hot dogs. Competitive canines can participate in a number of contests, and hungry hounds can munch at the doggie deli.

Shelter animals will be available for people who want to participate but don't have dogs of their own. Interested persons can also sponsor a shelter dog to participate in the walk.
