16th Annual Wiggle Waggle Walk on 9/28
PASADENA, Calif. (July 30, 2014) - - Animal lovers are invited to put their best feet forward at the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA’s 16th Annual Wiggle Waggle Walk a community fundraiser for animals at Brookside Park adjacent to the Rose Bowl. Organizers hope to raise $375,000 through the event, which will provide food, shelter and medical care to homeless animals, nearly 12,000 of which are taken in by the PHS every year. The walk will start at 9 a.m. on Sunday, September 28.
Thousands of people and their dogs are expected to take part in the walk. Walkers and their dogs can choose either a one-mile or three-mile route around the outside of the Rose Bowl stadium before enjoying a free Pet Expo at Brookside Park. Participants do not need a dog to join the fun—just a desire to help animals—and they can walk individually or form teams.
“The Wiggle Waggle Walk is a community event for animal lovers,” says Steve McNall, president and CEO of the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA. “This is our biggest fundraiser of the year. We would not be able to provide the level of care to all the animals in our nine-city service area without the community’s support.”
Participants are encouraged to fundraise for the animals by creating personal web pages through the Wiggle Waggle Walk website and asking family, friends and co-workers for donations. Non-walkers, and those unable to attend the event, can also create fundraising web pages through this site. Entrants who raise $50 will receive an official Wiggle Waggle Walk T-shirt. Registration is free.
Check-in starts at 8 a.m. at the entrance to Brookside Park. The walk will begin at 9:00 a.m. and the Pet Expo will take place immediately after the walk until 1 p.m. The Pet Expo will feature K-9 demonstrations, a variety of pet product booths, food trucks, paw-tapping music and canine contests. Brookside Park is located at 480 North Arroyo Blvd in Pasadena. Sponsors include Wells Fargo, 89.3 KPCC, VCA Animal Hospitals and Boehringer Ingelheim.

Fourth of July Pet Safety
PASADENA, Calif. (June 26, 2014) - - July 5 is the busiest day for animal shelters everywhere. Pets scared by the loud noises of the Fourth of July fireworks run away from their homes. Humane officers and concerned citizens bring many cats and dogs that are confused and exhausted to safety at the shelter. PHS recommends the following tips:
- Do not take your pets with you to watch fireworks.
- Keep pets inside during Fourth of July celebrations. Keeping them confined at home will help them to feel safe. Playing a radio may help diffuse the loud noise of fireworks.
- Be certain that pet’s ID tags are current. Update pet’s microchip information if necessary. A visible form of identification is the best way to ensure that pets can be returned home.
- If a pet may become extremely agitated or stressed, consult a veterinarian and discuss the possibility of sedatives or overnight boarding. Pet owners can call an animal behavior specialist to work with pets, but do this well in advance.
- If your pet runs away, search the kennels of the shelter closest to you. Many shelters post photos of the animals that come into their facility on their website. PHS' website, www.pasadenahumane.org, is updated hourly so that lost animals may be quickly reunited with their lost owners. Post signs and visit nearby shelters for at least the next month. Animals can run a long way when they are badly frightened.
- If your cat is lost, it may stay in hiding for several days or weeks, so leave plenty of food and fresh water outside your door. (Pick it up at night so you don't attract unwanted wild animals.) Post signs and check your local and neighboring shelters in person and on line; your description of your pet may fit several animals in the shelter.
PHS will have extra animal control officers on duty the evening of July 4 and will open at 8 a.m. on Saturday, July 5 to help reunite lost pets with their families. The Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA is located at 361 S. Raymond Ave, Pasadena 91105.
