The Cambridge and District Humane Society hopes to raise $20,000 this year at their Poochie Power Walk and Family Fun Day on Saturday, June 15.

The event takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Riverside Park in Cambridge. When asked about the event, Michelle DaSilva,
event co-ordinator, said, “It is a free community event for the whole family to enjoy. You don’t even need a dog to participate, just a love of animals.”

Although there is no registration required to participate in the walk, fundraising is encouraged. It goes rain or shine.

The Family Fun Day that follows the walk includes activities such as a sponsor and vendor marketplace with over 30 vendors, raffles, door prizes, food trucks, paw painting, Team K9, games for pets and people as well as an all-day barbecue.

Last year approximately 200 people came out.

All proceeds raised from this event are used for veterinary care, medical supplies and spay/neuter surgeries.  The community can learn more about CDHS and what they do and how they can get involved.”

The Cambridge and District Humane Society cares for homeless animals in need of temporary shelter. It looks for suitable new homes and provides education to the community on how to care for the newly adopted pet.  The Cambridge and District Humane Society accepts adoptable animals from the Cambridge City Pound, as well as public surrenders. The society also transfers in animals from many other shelters, pounds and rescue organizations in need.
