‘Walk With The Animals’ Set For April 27 In Riverside


Expectations are that upward of 1,500 pet owners and their four-legged friends will be participating.

RIVERSIDE, CA — Hundreds of pet owners are expected to pour into Fairmount Park near downtown Riverside next week for the annual “Walk with the Animals,” which is open to feline and canine owners throughout the Inland Empire.

The 32nd annual event is slated for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 27, and registration is open now, according to organizers.

The general cost of registration is $40, while students of any age are eligible for a $10 discount.

Expectations are that upward of 1,500 pet owners and their four-legged friends will be participating, forming “walk teams” that circle the park, organizers said.

“Following the walk, attendees can shop from the vendor village, burn off energy at the `Kids Zone,’ participate in pet contests, and purchase tickets for the over 40 raffle prizes that include gift cards for restaurants, events and experiences,” according to Molly Shannon, the event coordinator.

She said that the Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center relies on proceeds from the walk “for the care of the thousands of homeless animals helped by the Pet Adoption Center and its programs and services each year.”
