The 18th Annual Boardwalkin' for Pets takes place Saturday, April 22, from 9 a.m. to noon on the boards. Registration starts at 8:30 a.m.
Form a team to raise money for the walk and receive prizes. There is a $25 minimum entry fee for individuals, and for teams, a $25 per team per member minimum.
Prizes will be awarded to the highest pledge earners, top individual and team. Enter contests and win prizes for largest dog, smallest dog, best dressed dog and best dog trick.

Don't have a dog to walk? "Adopt" a shelter dog for the event. Arrangements must be made in advance by calling the shelter at 410-213-0146.
And don’t forget your feline friends! Bring a photo of your cat to the walk with your contact information written on the back. A special prize basket will be awarded to the "cutest cat.”
