Hundreds of dogs and their owners are expected to take part in the 14th annual Paws in the Park dog walk on Mar. 24th.  The event will raise funds and awareness for homeless and abandoned animals through the Escondido Humane Society.
Paws in the Park is the biggest event of its kind in North San Diego County. The family-friendly event includes a Paw Vendor Expo with more than 30 vendors, contests and games for people and dogs, entertainment, giveaways, pet confidence-building course, opportunity drawing and food. Festivities will begin with registration and a meet and greet at 8 a.m. At 9 a.m., walkers and their canine companions will embark on either a 1.5 or 2.5-mile course. The post-walk celebration gets started at 10:15 a.m. and concludes at noon.
Registration is free, and all walkers will receive incentive prizes based on dollars raised, starting at $50. For more information, call 760-888-2235 or visit www.escondidohumanesociety.org.
