In every city in America—large and small, urban and rural—animal lovers are trying to manage their communities’ population of homeless pets. At Emancipet Killeen, we provide low cost Spay/Neuter and Healthy Pet Services to all pet owners. The “Howl at the Moon Glow Walk” is an important charity event to raise funds to support and grow Emancipet Killeen’s mission. This fun family, dog-friendly event will not only provide much needed funding to support this non-profit organization, but also promote the health and well-being of pets and their owners. Walking regularly with dogs benefits both dogs and owners, and strengthens the human animal bond.
The glow walk will take place on Saturday, August 29, 2015 - night of a super moon - at the Harker Heights Community Park located at 1501 E FM 2410, Harker Heights. Early online registration through August 15, 2015, at http://epet.convio.net/site/Calendar?id=100261&view=Detail.
Early registers will be guaranteed a t-shirt, a glow stick, and glow necklace, glow bracelet. The first 200 to register will receive a free goodie bag.
On-site registration the day of the walk and activities will kick off at 5:00 p.m. Visit vendor booths and food trucks, enjoy music, demonstrations and entertainment as we wait for the super moon to rise. The walk will start with a group “Howl at the Moon” once the sun sets, approximately 8:30 p.m. Walkers will stroll the gravel walking path around the Pavilion area, and may make as many laps as they like (this is not a timed walk/race). This is a family friendly event, and well-behaved, well socialized dogs are welcome. All dogs must wear a collar with ID tag, and be on a leash (2'-4' recommended; NO retractable leashes).
