Annual Dog Walk - Saturday, May 5, 2012
The dog walk is an annual event that attracts thousands of people and pets from in and around southwest Michigan. This event exists to raise money through walkers who collect donations for walking around beautiful Prairie View Park and for encouraging responsible pet ownership by supplying access to vendors and businesses that promote animal health.
The Dog Walk includes a flying disc competition, microchipping, a children’s area, a pet adoptathon, pet photographs, contests, several animal demonstrations, and lots of good food and fun for the whole family. The Dog Walk is in its 28th year and is the largest event the Kalamazoo Humane Society sponsors each year.
Reverse Raffle Dinner - November, 2012
This is a unique and fun evening. Here’s the twist: instead of the first ticket drawn winning big, it's the LAST ticket drawn that will take home the $3,500 Grand Prize! There are also 15 other cash prize winners from $100 to $500 awarded throughout the game, making your odds even greater. Sale of raffle tickets is limited to 200. Raffle tickets are $100 each and include a buffet dinner and all beverages. Meal only tickets are $40. In addition to the reverse raffle drawing, there are a number of side raffle drawings and prize giveaways. Proceeds from the event benefit the Operation Fix-It low-cost spay and neuter program.
