Evanston Animal Shelter is holding its 3rd Annual Trick or Treat Trot for Tails Walkathon on October 28 at 10 a.m. All proceeds will benefit homeless pets. (The walk begins on Centennial Park and then moves to Lee Street, and ends back on Centennial Park.)
This modest shelter is doing great, handling 514 animals (so far) in 2017, and, via generous foster families and adopters, its live-release rate is about 98 percent. For any shelter, these numbers are incredibly impressive, but for an open-admission shelter they’re amazing. And, in 2016, the live-release rate was about the same. However, your support is still needed, and here’s a fun and easy way to do that.
Of course, don’t forget about the pet costume contest.
Registration for the event is $10 for an individual or $25 for a team of four.
