16th McGee Memorial Dog Walk set for Oct. 4

The Lakeshore Humane Society will hold its 16th annual Pat McGee Memorial Dog Walk on Sunday, Oct. 4 at the Lakeshore Humane Society Adoption Center, 431 E. Chestnut St. in Dunkirk.

This event is named in honor of the late New York state Sen. Pat McGee who worked to fight animal cruelty and supported Buster’s Law, also known as the Felony Animal Cruelty Law. The same day and location, the LHS will also hold a drive-through presale Weidner’s Chicken Barbecue fundraiser. Both activities are rain or shine.

Dog Walk registration is from 9 to 9:50 a.m. The Walk begins at 10 a.m. Registration is $20. Pre-registration by mail is encouraged. (Registrations are considered as non-refundable donations to the Lakeshore Humane Society.) Each dog must have proper I.D. on a collar or be microchipped, wear a rabies tag, be on a non-retractable leash at all times, and have an up-to-date rabies shot certificate to present at registration. For registration forms, go to the Lakeshore Humane Society website at www.lakeshorehumanesociety.org, then see “Shop” under the “More Info” tab.

The Weidner’s Chicken Barbecue is from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., through drive-through pick-up. Tickets are $12 and are only available presale. To order tickets, go to the Lakeshore Humane Society website – www.lakeshorehumanesociety.org, then see “Shop” under the “More Info” tab.

This is a major event, where all ages and members of the community can have fun, while helping the efforts of the Lakeshore Humane Society. For more information, see www.lakeshorehumanesociety.org or LHS’s Facebook page, or call 672-1991.
