We could all stand to get out of the house a little more with our pets to get some fresh air and exercise and enjoy nature. You can do it all at the Wiggle Waggle Walk & Rescue Run! The event benefits cats and dogs who have been taken in by the Animal Rescue Foundation in Mobile. Dawn McLaughlin is a volunteer, and she tells Cherish Lombard the 2014 Wiggle Waggle Walk and Rescue Run is Saturday, May 17th at the University of South Alabama Intramural Fields.
A certified 5K course begins at 8:00am, and a 1 mile Wiggle Waggle Walk starts at 9:00am. Dogs are welcome to be a part of the walk. Food and drinks will be served after the race, and local businesses will have booths set up for shopping.
Register by mail (entries should be postmarked by May 14th), in person at Pet Supplies Plus in Mobile until 9:00pm on Friday, May 16th, or online (www.EventBrite.com) until midnight, Thursday, May 15th.

The Wiggle Waggle Walk and Rescue Run will give dog lovers an opportunity to spend time with their four legged companions while helping generate much needed revenue for the Animal Rescue Foundation.
