The Fourth Annual Walk for Old Dogs and Old Dog Pageant was a stunning success last Sunday at Cromwell Park in Shoreline.

A record number of people and their dogs showed up to join in the festivities and over $80,000 was raised - $40,000 over the target goal.

Thanks to the walk sponsors and volunteers, all money raised for the walk will be used to care for over 260 dogs in permanent foster care with Old Dog Haven. Old Dog Haven is not a shelter, but a network of homes where the dogs spend their senior years as part of a family, being loved and cared for.

It was a very hot day

Two Shoreline businesses were sponsors of this year’s walk, Steve McDonald of Seattle Realty and August Henrich of One Dog at A Time. Both businesses not only sponsored the walk, but formed walk teams which raised thousands of dollars to help the dogs.

“This year was our most successful walk to date,” said Paula Moreschi, coordinator of the Walk for Old Dogs.  “It was truly an amazing day and we are so thankful to all the volunteers, participants and donors who made it happen.”
