Q5: Stillwater gets set to Walk-N-Wag

STILLWATER, Okla. — Jackie Ross-Guerrero is the director for the Humane Society of Stillwater. She talks about Saturday’s Walk-N-Wag.

1 What is Walk-N-Wag?

Walk-N-Wag is our major spring fundraiser. The Humane Society is a not-for-profit shelter that relies on donations and the community to keep our doors open. So we rely on two main fundraisers – a spring one, which is Walk-N-Wag, and a fall one, which is our golf tournament.

2 What does the money raised help fund?

We rely on donations, from the food to the treats but more importantly the health care of the animals. A lot of people can donate food, treats, leashes and collars, but they can’t donate vaccines or de-wormer. I have to go out and buy those.

3 When and where is the event?

Walk-N-Wag is this Saturday at Boomer Lake, but it’s mainly in the KICKER parking lot. Registration starts at 3:30 p.m. The walk starts at 4:30 p.m. The run starts at 5 p.m. For the walk it’s $25, and for the run it’s $30.

 

4 Why should people in the community attend the event?

We rescue all of our animals from the city Animal Welfare Department. If we cannot rescue animals from them, they do have to euthanize. Stillwater has not euthanized due to lack of space in over 15 years because of the funding we are able to raise.

5 What if I don’t have a dog, but I want to attend the event?

You can still attend. We’ll have some of our shelter dogs out there. So if you’re a dog lover and you still want to walk a dog, we will have some available. There’s also people who want to walk just to support the community and support the our shelter.
