Walk your pets in Lincoln Saturday for a good cause.
That's the mission of a trio of central Illinois animal clinics hosting the second annual "Bark for Life" at Kickapoo Park in Lincoln Saturday afternoon. Dr. Jason Wrage says they're inviting residents to come out and support animal shelters in central Illinois while enjoying giveaways and games.
The shelters the event benefits are in Sangamon, Tazewell and Logan Counties. Dr. Wrage says Kickapoo Park is a great spot for some walks and hopes plenty of pet owners and animal enthusiasts will come out from those areas.
Dr. Wrage says the goal is to educate their audience on pet care and the benefits of adoptions. He explains the shelters in their areas do so much to find pets permanent homes.
"Bark for Life" is Saturday at Kickapoo Park in Lincoln from 1 pm to 4 pm.
To learn more about pet adoptions in your community, the best way to start is a simple google search or to reach out to your neighborhood veterinarian office and talk to them.
