ANN ARBOR — The Humane Society of Huron Valley will celebrate the 34th annual Walk & Wag, a dog walk, 5k run, and family fun day, May 18 at Rolling Hills Park in Ypsilanti.
In honor of the event, the humane society is searching for a "celebrity spokesdog" to be the goodwill ambassador for the 2013 event.
Walk & Wag is the largest annual fundraiser for the humane society, featuring doggie games and contests, prizes, animal-themed merchandise, family-friendly activities and a morning 5k run.
All owners are welcome to participate in the fundraiser with their dog.
Does your dog have what it takes to be the HSHV spokesdog? The winning dog should have been adopted from the Humane Society of Huron Valley, be friendly toward people and other animals, well-mannered, and available to attend media events and Walk & Wag on May 18.
The winning canine will have its likeness featured on event posters and brochures and will be celebrated on the humane society's web page and in its newsletter.
To compete in the contest, submit a photo and small essay on the merits of your canine companion. The deadline is Jan. 31. Email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 734-661-3536 for more information.
