“Going to the future” – Animals on Saturday are completely pulled (or it already?)
Break your legs and keep your hair gel. Wilson Park returned to Bark to the Future in the 1980s on Saturday.
The event is the 30th annual companion walk and an important fundraising event for the Tri-County Humane Society.
For a long time, the theme of walking had a feeling of the 1960s, said Kate Kompas, volunteer and activity coordinator at the shelter. But they want to do something special this year.
The 80s was natural.
This refuge began in the 1980s, as did the companion walk.
“I am a child after 80,” Compass said. “The nostalgia of the 80s is frustrating now.”
In the first year, less than 50 people appeared. On Saturday, the staff is expected to be about 600 people.
This year they hope to reach the $60,000 fundraising goal.
“This is very ambitious,” Compass said. “Usually, we will raise somewhere around $50,000.”
Kompas said that this is a terrible goal, but it is necessary. The organization hopes to make enough money to set aside some new housing.
She said that these shelters are now doing more than just sheltering animals.
“In the past 30 years, we have completely changed as an organization,” she said. “We must do it very ambitiously (animals).”
