Join us at Lake Future Trail at the DMACC Ankeny Campus on Saturday, May 18th! Presented by Anderson Animal Hospital, the 8th Annual ARL Dog Walk is sure to be a great time for people and pups alike! We are excited to announce a new addition to the ARL Dog Walk this year: a 5k non-competitive "fun run" before the walk! Runners are encouraged to stay after the run and walk their dogs (no additional charge) with the rest of the walkers; then everyone can enjoy the entertainment following the walk. We encourage all participants to collect pledges from their family and friends to help support the ARL. This year's walk will be lead by the winner of the Grand Marshal competition, Porsche! For more information on how to get started, register below or contact Brandi at Would you like to help us promote the Dog Walk? Click here for a printable flyer!
