The MSPCA is inviting everyone in the animal-loving community (and their dogs!) to join the annual Walk for Animals at the Edgartown School on Sunday, Sept. 9, a fundraiser to support the Island’s homeless animals.

Registration begins at 10:30 a.m. with the walk starting at noon. When walkers (two and four-legged) return to the school, the fun continues with an afternoon of refreshments, an agility demonstration, raffles and pet contests. Registration is $25, and every participant will receive a T-shirt for their support.

The MSPCA urges you to sign up and encourage your friends, family and fellow animal lovers to do the same. Or get them to support the cause by becoming one of your sponsors. If you can’t make the event, you can still make a difference by donating online at Or become a “virtual walker” — recruit donors and walkers to walk in your own neighborhood.
