Dress yourself and your dog in your best green outfits and start celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, or St. Paw-trick’s Day, early on Saturday, March 17, by joining hundreds of humans, dogs, and other critters for the 20th Annual Walk With The Animals presented by Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center (MSRPAC). This year’s event features Bob Harper of NBC’s “The Biggest Loser” and Irish Wolfhounds from Wolfhoundrescue as Grand Marshals of the pledge walk around beautiful Lake Evans in Fairmount Park, Riverside.

Pledge walk registration and a hearty pancake breakfast ($5 per person) begin at 8:00 am. (band shell area) with the event’s various family-friendly activities going on from 8:00 until noon. Walk With The Animals is free, open to the public, and held rain or shine.

A bagpiper kicks off the 1.3-mile pledge walk at 9:00 am. The St. Paw-trick’s Day event also features a performance by children from Butler Fearon O'Connor School of Irish Dance, a Kiss The Blarney Dog booth, pet costume contest, Muttley Crew K-9 Entertainment, Urban Search and Rescue demonstration, bake sale for people and pets, exhibitors, breed rescue groups, low-cost vaccinations and microchips, and fabulous raffle prizes. Free water and first aid is available for pets and people.

Walk participants are encouraged to collect pledges to sponsor their effort. There are categories for individuals and groups of three or more adults and youth (16 and under). Participation in the pledge walk is not required to attend the event.

The person collecting the most pledge money will enjoy a Saturday night stay for two in a suite at the Historic Mission Inn with Sunday brunch. Second place pledge collector receives Sunday brunch for two at the Historic Mission Inn. The top two youths collecting the most pledge money receive an MSRPAC engraved medal and Walk t-shirt.

The top team, adult and youth categories, collecting the most pledge money will be recognized with a commemorative brick in MSRPAC’s Celebration Walkway.
